Explore the intersection between diversity and the experience of--and recovery from--psychological trauma. Using a clinician-friendly model for cultural competence, discuss factors related to the treatment of complex trauma for diverse populations. Address intake and assessment, client-therapist variables, intervention strategies, and mind-body and stage of change perspectives. Discuss adaptation of mainstream approaches and evidence-based practices in order to meet the needs of minority groups using a recently approved SAMHSA model of intervention for Latinas.
