Presentation Type: topical discussion

Synopsis: Behavioral health disparities across a variety of indicators are evident when comparing African-American urban youth to the majority population. Under the framework of cultural competence, an approach emphasizing clinical engagement and resilience is one method of addressing disparity through the clinical and human need for hope and to see a new future. From this perspective, medication and behavior modification are subordinate and healing and growth move to the forefront. The intent of the topical discussion is to discuss how a culturally competent and resilience-based approach should influence outcomes design, future research questions, and clinical practice.
