A major focus in behavioral health care is the reduction of stigma to help bridge the gap in access to quality care for marginalized communities. Supportive and motivating language is essential for engaging persons in care who are already burdened with dealing with the challenges that come from substance use disorders, mental illness, physical disabilities, and more.
This interactive webinar will provide a review and practice skills on the use of person-first language (aligns with person-centered care), as an effective means of enhancing the provider-client communication and reducing bias perspectives with racial and ethnic populations, persons with disabilities, and other underserved communities.
All participants are required to attend the entire session, turn on their video cameras, and actively participate in order to receive a certificate of completion.
