Sociocultural factors in the assessment and treatment of individuals who sexually offend are important to examine. Awareness of implicit biases and the cultural competence of the therapist are essential in ethical treatment. Cultural humility is the ability to maintain an interpersonal stance that is other-oriented in relation to aspects of cultural identity that are more important to the client. Participants will become informed of cultural considerations in the assessment and treatment. This workshop will assist participants in identifying cultural factors (i.e., racial/ethnicity, language, religion, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, and disability) during assessment to better inform treatment and risk management recommendations.

As a result of attending this training, participants will be better able to:
1) Explore therapist implicit biases and gain knowledge on how to become a culturally humble clinician.

3) Explore how cultural differences in attitudes and beliefs affect behavior.
4) Describe important diversity considerations in assessment and treatment.
