About the Course:

In family therapy, the family as a whole is the focus of treatment. However, implementing culturally competent family therapy requires clinicians to have an understanding of different populations’ unique backgrounds and characteristics. This course reviews the characteristics of several diverse populations and how to best match a family therapy intervention to each population.

This course is based on Chapter 5 of (TIP 39) Substance Abuse Treatment And Family Therapy created by SAMHSA in 2015.
