Shifting Cultural Lenses in Clinical Practice – Steven Lopez, PhD
Presented by Steven Lopez, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern California
In contrast to a group-based approach to cultural competence, I will present a model of cultural competence that encourages clinicians to consider one’s patient’s social world and individual experience. In addition, I will identify clinician’s behaviors that reflect our model which we refer to as Shifting Cultural Lenses. I will illustrate key aspects of the model with a case of a young Latinx boy with autism spectrum disorder.
Critically examine the role of culture in clinical cases.
Apply the key principles of the Shifting Cultural Lenses in carrying out clinical assessments and interventions.
Identify the clinician’s behavioral indicators that reflect the Shifting Cultural Lenses Model of cultural competence
