PTSD 101 Courses: African-American Veterans: Treatment Impact for PTSD
PTSD 101 Courses: African-American Veterans
As clinicians treat African-American patients with PTSD and other issues, it is very important that they take into account historical, cultural, and societal issues, as well as their personal beliefs and biases that may facilitate and/or hinder the therapeutic process. In the course Cross Cultural Issues: African-Americans and Treatment Impact for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), information is provided about cross-cultural issues with African-Americans that are helpful to be aware of in the context of both individual and group therapy. Cultural/societal issues involving power and privilege, African-American Families, multicultural awareness, competence, therapy guidelines, and overall PTSD issues are presented to assist clinicians in facilitating their therapeutic engagement and treatment effectiveness.
