Sep 27, 2022 | Psychology


The following review outlines trends in cultural competence theory and research, with a focus on ethnicity. The analysis is the level of the provider and the treatment applies both to cultural similarities and differences between psychotherapists and patients. At the provider level, three main areas are highlighted across the theoretical and empirical literature: self-awareness, knowledge, and skills (Sue, Hall, Nagayama Hall, & Berger, 2009; Ponterotto & Grieger, 2008).
