This on-demand professional training program on To do or not to do? Ethical Issues in Cross-Cultural Assessment is presented by Veronica Bordes Edgar, Ph.D., ABPP and Beatriz MacDonald Wer, Ph.D. in partnership with the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP).
This program guides participants on integrating equity, justice, and inclusion in cross-cultural assessments. Through case studies, participants learn various ways to manage ethical issues. Participants benefit from a discussion of race-based norms in assessment, learn alternative strategies, and understand the nuances of telehealth services.
Major ethical and legal documents, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and the 21st Century Cures Act, are reviewed.
Issues of equity, justice, inclusion, intersectionality, and diversity impact all clinical psychological and neuropsychological evaluation procedures. Sociocultural factors can impact outcomes from case conceptualization through diagnostic formulations to recommendations and feedback. To practice within the APA ethical guidelines, we must strive to be aware of these factors and how they may interact with the assessment process.
