Cultural Competence in Mental Health and Addiction Recovery   ACF

Adult Care Facility Operators will receive 1.5 hours of mental health training that can apply toward the training requirement from Licensure and Certification.


Cultural Competence in Mental Health and Addiction Recovery

Course Description

According to SAMHSA, to produce positive change, peer supporters and other members of the behavioral health workforce must understand the cultural context of their target community. They must also have the willingness and skills to work within this context. This means drawing on community-based values and customs and working with knowledgeable people from the community in all clinical and non-clinical efforts. Cultural competence is the ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures. In practice, both individuals and organizations can be culturally competent. Culturally responsive skills can improve client engagement in services, therapeutic relation-ships between clients and providers, and treatment retention and outcomes. Cultural competence is an essential ingredient in decreasing disparities in behavioral health. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to define the terms cultural competence and micro-aggressions. 
  2. Participants will be able to identify the three principles of cultural humility.
  3. Participants will be able to describe and use a culturally and linguistically informed approach with the individuals they serve.

Ethics and Boundaries for Peer Recovery Supporters

Program Description

Ethics are a critical component to any profession, but are especially important to professions rooted in health and human services. Peer support programs pose several key ethical challenges. Although peer support specialists typically receive extensive agency-based training about their unique roles, most haven't received formal social work education or comprehensive ethics education. These specialists often provide various forms of social service that require skilled judgments related to client privacy and confidentiality, boundaries and dual relationships, informed consent, competence and expertise, documentation, and client abandonment. This module will provide a foundation for understanding ethics and boundaries for peer support as well as the Code of Ethics for Ohio Certified Peer Recovery Supporters.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to define both ethics and boundaries.
