This workshop will illustrate culturally responsive methods for assessing complex trauma in adults. Through the use of a semi-structured interview process, methods for identifying hidden aspects of sexual, physical, verbal abuse and neglect are identified. Interactive case studies are presented and highlight examples in which the trauma is not assessed and the client is mis-diagnosed. An intersectional view of culture is utilized in which cases are drawn from a variety of age, gender, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds. This advanced workshop is designed for psychologists who assess patients as part of an intake or psychodiagnostic assessment process.
- Describe methods for assessing the hidden aspects of sexual, physical, verbal abuse and neglect.
- Utilize semi-structured assessment techniques to conduct a culturally responsive trauma assessment with adult clients.
- Explain methods for adapting the assessment techniques within brief and integrated health care settings.
CE: 3 hours
