WHAT: 2019 Ambit Network Conference: "Cultural competency: Integrating cultural considerations into evidence-based models and community practice" WHEN: Thursday, June 27, 8:30-12:30 p.m. HOW MUCH: $25 (includes breakfast)  “Cultural competence” is becoming one of the most important topics in mental health practice. There is a rapidly growing awareness that effective care must be tailored to the cultural backgrounds of the families we serve.  However, it remains difficult to know where to begin. Many practitioners struggle to balance the benefits of following evidence-based practices with the importance of culturally tailoring our work. To explore this important question, Ambit Network and the Center for Resilient Families at the University of Minnesota are hosting a half-day conference that will bring together leading voices on the topic from around the state and nation. Attendees will learn practical tools for becoming more culturally competent in their work, which will improve their confidence and effectiveness in serving parents from diverse cultural backgrounds.
