The course PTSD: General Cross-Cultural Considerations explores cultural identity and highlights how shared learned behavior and socially transferred meanings result in culturally-based assumptions about mental health. It will explore how interpretations of and reactions to severe stressors can vary by culture. It then provides strategies for modifying and augmenting assessment and treatment techniques when working with cross-cultural clients.
