Empirically-Supported Clinical Practice in Specialty Areas: The Quick-Start Guide to Fostering Multicultural Competency
The American Psychological Association creates and promulgates professional guidelines to support psychologists with their work in different specialty areas and in serving diverse populations. The guidelines provide state of the art information on best practices for these aspects of applied psychology, developed by psychologists with domain-specific expertise and drawing upon the most current relevant research. As such, these guidelines are the most streamlined way to attain a foundational idea of the knowledge and skills needed to engage competently in a particular aspect of psychological practice. Multicultural competency is one such core aspect of our work as psychologists, but without a clear framework for application it can feel daunting to translate the concept of cultural humility into practice or feel assured that a sufficient level of competency is present.The APA practice guidelines are an excellent way to quickly "get up to speed" with working with populations that have been identified as having unique clinical needs or areas for attention in providing culturally-competent care, or to otherwise ensure that principles of cultural humility are effectively incorporated into other aspects of practice. In this presentation, members of the IPA Diversity Committee will provide information on the APA professional practice guidelines, including what they are, how to access them, how to apply them to clinical work, and brief introduction to the content. The presentation will review examples of these resources, address their particular utility for fostering multicultural competency in clinical work, and offer opportunity for practical application of the guidelines.  

Learning Objectives:
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1.    describe the purpose and utility of the American Psychological Association's various professional practice guidelines.
2.    summarize prominent themes present in the professional practice guidelines as relates to multicultural competency and work with specific diverse populations.
3.    apply the content of the professional practice guidelines as part of engaging in culturally-aware clinical practice.
