Culture: An Integral Part of Mental Health Services for Hmong Populations
Dr. Pang Foua Yang Rhodes

Culture is an enduring element, a tradition that is embedded in every human thought, emotion, and behavior. Culture is an element that is often complex to assess, as it is ever-changing as societal norms change. However, culture is also the critical factor that upholds normed belief patterns that maintain physical and psychological health as well as contributing to the tenacity of mental health and substance use disorders. This training was developed for behavioral health professionals and administrators wishing to learn how to integrate cultural elements into effective behavioral health services for Hmong clients.

- Demonstrate the consideration and incorporation of cultural values when
treating Hmong with behavioral health disorders
- Distinguish culture-related symptoms when diagnosing Hmong clients
- Identify the harms of labeling culture-related reactions as pathological
- Identify strategies to engage Hmong clients effectively
