Few, if any, evidence based practices have been intentional about incorporating cultural competence into the model. When culture is unaddressed, therapeutic walls instead of therapeutic bridges can be built, leading to tension in the clinical relationship. This can render the evidence-based practice ineffective. Topics covered in this skill-building presentation include: the 10 things that culturally competent counselors do; building trust in the cross cultural helping relationship; and integrating cultural competence into evidence based practices with individuals with co-occurring disorders.
