She will address socio-cultural and systemic challenges faced by this population and will outline how they impact the community's mental health.

There will be a discussion on intersectionality theory, its key tenets and application to conceptualize client's mental health distress. Also, she will provide culturally empowering treatment strategies that clinicians can apply in their work with this population. As part of sharing resources to facilitate treatment, there will be a resource packet provided to attendees to easily shared with clients. There will also be a case study to help attendees apply their takeaways.
