This training will be an overview of the relevance of the DSM-5 cultural formulation, otherness and cultural axis will be framed within a model of person-centered care. Theoretical implications of systemic, social, ecological, legal, and historical embedding will be explored both through readings and clinical case studies. The purpose of the sessions is to promote the integration of eclectic therapeutic elements with cultural and social realities of the client which shape social, relational, intrapsychic, developmental, and neurobiological experiences. The seminar will encourage discussion of cases with multiple perspectives and intervention pathways relevant to the care of a diverse patient population and to the realities of institutional issues and collaborative models of community engagement. Intragenerational and psychohistoriographic influences in complex trauma treatment, acculturation, displacement, cultural genocide, and other relevant patient issues will be highlighted.
