Becoming Culturally Competent and Ethically Responsible: Beyond Basics
Presenters: Gitu Bhatia, Psy.D., Linda Bortell, Psy.D., Abbas Hadjian, Esq. and Diana Martinez, Esq.
Professionals working with families going through divorce and separation need to increase awareness and skills to be able to discern the complex aspects of culture, world views, and communication patterns of the families with whom we interact in the legal process. Participants will also learn to identify and empathize with the socio political aspects of racism, power and privilege and how these may impact issues of trust and mistrust and create barriers in the legal processes and, specifically, within the context of family law.
