DBHDS Certified CLC Facilitators
DBHDS Certified Level 1 Cultural & Linguistic Competence Facilitators
Blacksburg, VA June 2015
In the spring of 2014, thirty individuals were selected from CSBs, facilities, licensed private providers, and consumer organizations from around the state who demonstrated emerging or mature intercultural development and who committed to providing CLC training in their regions over the next several years to be trained as CLC workshop facilitators.
In partnership with Virginia Tech’s Institute of Language and Culture, the OHEA developed a curricula that focused on preparing trainees to present the foundations of cultural and linguistic competence, explore the nexus between individual intercultural development, the provision of culturally competent services, and introduce strategies for organizational implementation of the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services.
DBHDS Certified Facilitators are prepared with the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to provide training in your organization and community on the following topics:
- Communicating Culturally
- Intercultural Conflict Style Inventory
- National Standards for Culturally & Linguistically Appropriate Services
These facilitators are change agents for our system and represent a new resource for our system. They can provide training in their regions based on availability. For more information or to contact a certified facilitator in your region, contact OHEA.
