During 2020, the twin pandemics of COVID 19 and social unrest exposed significant socioeconomic and racial/ethnic disparities within the United States. Unfortunately, psychotherapy has often reflected these disparities. If psychotherapy is to remain meaningful and credible it needs to be inclusive of the needs and characteristics of all, not just of a privileged few. Cultural Psychotherapy addresses this issue by underscoring how our interventions/relationships and who we are is embedded within socio-economic cultural contexts that confine our relationships and meanings. In this presentation Cultural Psychotherapy’s integrative and systematic model is underscored describing its specific applications. The three treatment phases are depicted, highlighting how they are used to address patients’ symptoms and to empower them to transform unjust socioeconomic contexts.

Following this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify at least three of the main characteristics of Cultural Psychotherapy
  2. Differentiate the three phases of Cultural Psychotherapy
  3. Name at least one telehealth strategy that is applicable with each of the three phases of Cultural Psychotherapy.
