Archive : Multicultural Awareness from Lambers Fisher

No clinician wants to offend their client… but all too often, cultural misunderstandings hinder healthy interactions, either through unintentional offenses or the avoidance of issues. And if you lose your client’s trust, you also lose your opportunity to bring them to a therapeutic breakthrough.

It’s time to become more culturally competent so you can create positive clinical changes and feel confident in your ability to guide clients from any culture, to therapeutic success.

Join Lambers Fisher, MS, LMFT, MDIV, in this engaging online course that explores issues of ethnicity, age, gender, sexuality, religion, acculturation, and social justice through case studies and experiential exercises. You’ll gain new, practical strategies you can use immediately to increase your multicultural competence, build rapport with diverse clients and adapt treatments for specific groups.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this transformational online course
