More Details:

Cultural Competency: This workshop will help participants begin to develop the tools necessary to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services to the DHOHDB population, with an emphasis on the deaf population, through gaining a better understanding of their unique needs and culture and exploring the role of interpreters, their limitations, and difficulties they face in the clinical setting.

 

Participants will learn: what Deafness is; why deafness is a linguistic and cultural difference and not a disability; barriers and challenges to treatment; necessary treatment modifications; role of interpreters; and how to integrate interpreters into the therapeutic team
