Cultural norms and barriers to healthcare in Latino communities can affect the perception of ADHD symptoms in children. While Latino communities show similar susceptibility to ADHD as the general population, Latino children in the United States are less likely to be diagnosed and treated. Psychiatrist Luke Smith presents important cultural considerations professionals need to be aware of when treating Latinos who have ADHD.
Upon completion of the webinar, you will be able to:
• Understand contextual factors to acknowledge when talking with Latino
families about medication
• Identify styles and content that can promote and derail effective communication
• Illustrate culturally appropriate metaphors that promote understanding
