The purpose of this training is to introduce providers to a basic understanding of culture and its possible relation to the provision of treatment that is competent and responsive to Hispanic and Latino populations. At the same time, this educational product presents norms and values that might influence the therapy process,  engagement and outcomes of the client. This product is designed to teach cultural competence concepts, values, and strategies for engagement and treatment, and to apply those concepts when working with Hispanics and Latinos with mental health disorders. Cultural consideration for school personnel will be also discussed during the training.
