Addressing Ethical Issues in Language and Culture

Sleep Inn & Suites Conference Center, Eau Claire WI
As service providers encounter more diverse populations in their practice, it’s important to understand and address the ethical, systemic and practice issues that can arise when serving individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP). These clients may include refugees, immigrants, asylees or individuals requiring services to be delivered using an interpreter. They may be adults or children. Using a fictitious but typical example of a refugee client from Thailand who is referred for psychological testing, we’ll conceptualize case scenarios from taking the initial phone call through completing the evaluation and sending out the report. You’ll learn how to manage issues prior to the patient’s arrival, during the service delivery and after the session. Each section will address the issues that providers will want to understand to deliver ethical and culturally informed services. We’ll examine general practices that apply to individuals from any culture with some special attention given to Hmong and other Asian cultures.
