Single-Day Workshop: Conducting Therapy in Spanish and Working with the Latino Population
The next Workshop will be scheduled after April of 2017.
The workshop relates to counselor's scope of practice by presenting the entire process involved in therapy from initial contact with a patient to termination or transfer of treatment. This workshop requires a basic understanding of Spanish and a book is lent to attendees to help guide them during the workshop (the attendee has the option of buying the book prior to or after the workshop). The instructor presents the information in both English and Spanish and the audience is asked to engage in role-plays and other interactive exercises to help obtain the skills presented. The workshop begins with steps involved in the initial contact with the patient and questions to ask during an intake or initial interview and mental status exam to help with the diagnostic aspect in practice, which can then be conveyed to the patient. The workshop then provides the Spanish translations to treatment modalities and major theoretical orientations in psychology. In addition, the therapeutic process and treatment planning are discussed in such a way to be able to convey this information to a Spanish-speaking patient. The workshop ends with termination or transfer of treatment and issues pertaining to working with the Latino population (e.g., stigma related to seeking psychological treatment). Forms in Spanish and literature are presented based on the information presented.
