In 2017, CPI hosted two statewide trainings on cultural competency. This year, CPI will respond to some of the challenges and issues identified last year by offering six one-day regional trainings throughout California.
Goal of this Event
Through facilitated discussions, training sessions, and action planning, Cultural Competency for Counties will support counties working to achieve cultural competence. The regions will cover a smaller geographic area in order to be more culturally responsive to SUD Pv service recipients.
- Provide information and guidance on how to incorporate cultural competence into local SUD Pv efforts and strategic prevention planning.
- Understand how to integrate prevention strategies to address the Social Determinants of Health and health disparities.
- Support county departments and local service providers to competently address the needs of focus populations.
County Prevention Coordinators, County department staff, contracted SUD Pv providers, community-based organizations, regional prevention coalitions, and other local collaborators.
