The term, “I don’t see color” is often used by individuals to describe their views on diversity but this phrase can be detrimental in therapeutic settings when treating persons of color. The ability for providers to “see” color allows for the development of culturally competent programming and the critical factor of developing a therapeutic alliance. Data shows that racial and ethnic minority groups are likely to experience limited access and poor engagement in substance use disorder treatment. “Seeing color” allows providers to acknowledge and address the complexity of barriers and issues facing individuals and families in need of mental health and substance use disorder treatment.
This workshop provides an overview of the prevalent issues impacting substance abuse disorders among marginalized and underserved communities, and presents information to help providers to understand cultural issues relevant to treating persons of color and examine how programs can develop processes to monitor and access efforts to incorporate cultural competency.
