"No other training program hones in on these important multicultural topics with the scope and depth of the CBMCS Multicultural Training Program. We've had marked success implementing this program -- improving cultural competence in providers so they can offer more effective counseling to clients from diverse backgrounds. Trainees have also shown an increase in self-awareness and better understand their influence on therapy. CBMCS should be required training for counselors and social workers as well as others in the mental health field who work with diverse client populations."
