Treatment Of African Americans And Latinos

A key element in the effective treatment of African American and Latino patients in psychotherapy is to maintain a firm grasp of the basic principles that elevate cultural competence. Increasing ethnic awareness is the key to competence cultivation among practicing clinicians; it is requisite that they become increasingly knowledgeable about commonly shared ethnic/minority experiences and perspectives that are often quite different from their own. Working with ethnic/minority patients highlights the great need for clinicians to remain cognizant of their patients' personal beliefs and assumptions. More importantly, clinicians must resist the harmful tendency to make evaluative judgments, which may have major implications for the overall effectiveness of psychotherapy and treatment with a diverse clientele.

Exploring EFT

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It works to free the user of both physical and emotional pain and relieve chronic conditions by healing the physical responses our bodies make after we've been hurt or experienced pain. While some people do not carry the effects of these experiences, others have bodies that hold onto these memories, which affect the way the body works. Because it is a free and fast technique, even if you are not one hundred percent committed to whether it works or not, it is still worth giving it a shot and seeing if there is any improvement.
