DSM-5 for the Culture
This course will focus on using the DSM-5 with the respect to minority communities’ cultural impacts. While the DSM provides much information to provide an adequate diagnosing, it does not cover much of the cultural components and traditions respectfully to Black and People of Color communities which in turn can lead to an incorrect diagnosis in regard to understanding trauma, religion, and what is considered abnormal behaviors.
Each community will have 8 webinars focusing on the most used diagnosis and will expand to the entire DSM in the near future.
• Understanding DSM-5 language and how to properly diagnosis using the DSM-5
• Learning how cultural background and history can impact mental health and treatment.
• Questions to ask respective individuals in minority communities to gain insight before diagnosing.
• How culture can define what is abnormal behavior and what is normal
Each community will have their own series of 8 webinars focusing specifically on one diagnostic category.

Frequently Asked Questions
One of the positives to classes and live webinars is the Q & A, while this will be a recorded webinar, your purchase will include a live 2 hour Q & A on the section that is currently released to be able to ask questions, do a little consultation or whatever you need.
Because of the extensive information that will be discussed in these webinars, I will be limiting how many people can sign up for the webinar at a time so that the Q & A sessions won’t be packed and everyone can be provided time to ask questions.
The 1st series will be DSM-5: The Black Way which will be focusing on the Black/African American communities and will start in February 2021 in honor of Black History month. It will release around February 19th and you have a week to review and listen to the webinar before the live Q & A to take place on March 6th (time TBA).
