Culture, Consumer Voice & Recovery

This seminar provides some examples of innovative outreach and treatment strategies targeted to specific cultural groups, including suicide prevention strategies aimed at Latina adolescents and innovations in engaging diverse populations in supported education and employment. We will also examine some innovative activities to activate patients from diverse groups in their treatment, for example via an intervention in which a care manager coaches patients in how to formulate questions of their clinicians, and the use of Photovoice, a qualitative research design in which consumers are asked to document their thoughts with cameras, as it may be easier to use photos to illustrate concepts that they may have difficulty verbalizing.
