Culturally informed therapy is the understanding that we cannot separate an individual’s development from their social, cultural, and historical context. In addition to intrapsychic life and interpersonal experiences, a person’s social, cultural, historical context deeply shapes them, who they are, their internal experience, how they relate to the external world, and what they struggle with.
Culturally informed therapy is a must because:
To be effective, the therapist must not only hold the importance of culturally informed care but they also need do their own work of self-awareness, knowledge gathering, skill building and humility.
