Workshop Information:
When we are able to express awareness of client’s needs and interest and demonstrate genuine empathy in regards to their unique, sometimes culturally sensitive issues and concerns, the therapeutic relationship is more dynamic and beneficial for all parties involved. Guillermo Alvarez, LMFT, has provided mental health services for the Latino / Hispanic community in the East Bay area for over 13-years. And one of his goals has been to raise awareness about some specific issues that mental health providers can benefit from in regards to providing effective mental health care for Latino / Hispanic clients. He also aims to improve access to mental health treatment for individuals, couples and families in need. The tools and strategies that Guillermo will share are based upon many years of experience and a personal commitment to a population dear to his heart.

In this meeting we will address the following objectives:

* Identification of common diagnoses among Latinos

* Examining indicators for acculturation

* Exploring clinician biases and personal beliefs and their implication on service delivery

* Discussing barriers to services

* Identification of best practices when working with Latinos

Guillermo Alvarez, LMFT, has been an active leader in the CAMFT community for the past 12 years, including the 2013-2014 CAMFT Board of Directors, President. The SVC-CAMFT is honored to provide a forum for this very important presentation on Friday, June 20, 2014. Guillermo will present at both the pre-licensed group meeting and the general meeting.
