The New Diversity: Maintaining Cultural Competency in a New Era of Diversity

Philadelphia, PA 19111
Development and maintenance of our multicultural competence is an APA ethical mandate. Researchers have identified recent changes in how multicultural issues are discussed and addressed in both real time and via social media. These changes can seem overwhelming to busy educators/clinicians and set up the possibility of “diversity burnout”. This presentation will outline current challenges, review ethical principles and present some suggestions for maintaining and developing cultural competence.
