Using a Health Equity Lens to Providing Behavioral Health Care
Eboni Winford, PhD, MPH
This 1.5-hour webinar will provide an overview of health equity approaches to wellness. Specific strategies to help psychologists identify and address inequities that affect behavioral health concerns that clients/patients experience will be discussed. Through didactics and interactive conversation, participants will work to identify ways to apply a health equity lens to identifying and removing barriers to client/patient progress.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
· Define health equity, health disparities, and differentiate these concepts from equality and social determinants of health.
· Identify three health disparities that negatively impact the psychological health of Knoxville's patients/clients.
