Optimizing Treatment for Your Community: Utilizing Culturally Adapted Evidence-Based Treatments and Practices

April 29, 2022, 12:30–2:00 p.m. ET

There are a number of evidence-based practices (EBPs) that are available for the treatment of substance use disorders; however, many standard EBPs and therapies may not produce the expected outcomes across culturally diverse client populations. To improve treatment outcomes, EBPs may need to be adapted to better address cultural considerations, including differences in language, values, and other factors that contribute to treatment initiation, engagement, and retention. This webinar will begin with a presentation on steps towards modifying EBPs to increase cultural responsivity. Two presentations on culturally adapted EBPs – Motivational Interviewing (MI) for Native Americans and web-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Latinx populations – will follow.
