Multicultural Therapy at Creative Care
At Creative Care, we understand that culture matters. At Creative Care, we understand that culture matters as much inside of the therapeutic setting as it did in every client’s life before treatment. And what impacts the client matters to the clinician. With this spirit of inclusivity in mind, clinicians are trained to both self-reflect in order to understand their own conception of culture, then to consider how their own understanding might be different from others, and finally how these differences could show up in therapy.
Upon reflection and consideration, clinicians are prepared to meet each client and orient their action plan around these cultural nuances. Additionally, we invite each client to share their experiences and thoughts around the value of culture in their individual path to recovery.
More specific to how Creative Care integrates the multicultural approach: to begin with, we conceptualize a person’s attachment dynamics through the frame of the individual’s culture. This conceptualization is critical to the therapeutic process, given that attachment style frames the relationship habits for all of humanity-addiction or not. That is not to overstate the significance of the relationship, which is the relationship that an infant has with its primary caregiver, for it cannot be overstated. Next, our clinicians are primed to utilize cultural-responsiveness and person-centered care that grounds the therapeutic relationship. This process is as individualized for each client as it is steeped in cultural sensitivity.
At Creative Care, we recognize that symptoms can manifest, thus appear differently based on the dominant culture of the client. This recognition of cultural underpinnings will naturally impact the enation of treatment plans and any further personal needs that might appear throughout the treatment process. Finally, we aim to work within the culturally-congruent modalities to ensure client satisfaction.
