The course Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Culturally Competent Treatment of Asian-American and Pacific Islanders focuses on the cultural issues within PTSD treatment, specifically with some of the Asian-American and Pacific Islander ethnicities.
Levels of cultural competence are discussed, as well as how mental health treatment is perceived among Hawaiian, Samoan, Chamorran, Chinese, Japanese, and Filipino cultures. Suggestions for building rapport and communication (which also allow for sensitivity to possible norms and values of each of these cultures) are also presented.
