Location: Meeting Room 6
Developing cultural competence around mental health, and having the appropriate skills to respond to a diverse set of students, is essential for all educators. This understanding is especially true when working with vulnerable populations or youth who suffer from health disparities, such as students of color and students in the LGBTQIA+ community. This workshop will describe building confidence in participants to approach students about concerning behavior from a variety of racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
