Among concerns for psychologists providing treatment to individuals in diverse cultural communities are the issues of whether they themselves and/or their supervisors are able to understand the cultural contexts in which they work, provide psychological services, and may also live in. Deficits in this knowledge can lead to misunderstanding at best and failure to provide optimal treatment or even harm at worst. There will also be discussion and examples of cultural trauma and its relevance to psychological issues and therapy, as well as sensitivity and ethical decision-making in providing supervision.

These and related concerns will be discussed in an effort to heighten awareness and to avoid potential pitfalls and liability. Presenters will use clinical vignettes, relevant ethical guidelines, and discussion of practical challenges for clinicians in culturally diverse communities. Attendee examples of related ethical and treatment dilemmas will be welcomed into the discussion. Decision guidelines will be provided, and a peer consultation model emphasized.

In North Carolina, psychology has both doctoral-level and master's-level practitioners. Professional counselors, clinical addiction specialists, clinical social workers and marriage and family therapists require only a master's degree. Of the five allied professional mental health care disciplines, only master's-level psychologists currently requires career-long supervision. The adjacent table reflect the number of licenses per year for each discipline for 2013 through 2018, inclusive, and the growth of licensees in percentage and members. The table indicates a 4% decline in LPAs, a 6% increase in LPs while the other four disciplines have grown from 24% to 165%. The time is now for a call to action to preserve our profession and our practice.
