Unfortunately, children and families of diverse ethnic, racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds have been historically underrepresented in studies that look at therapy effectiveness. There is much debate about whether interventions that are found to be effective for Caucasian children can be as beneficial for their minority peers, whom are frequently assumed to have different needs and responses to treatment.
Cultural adaptations – modifying the way EBTs are delivered in a way that is responsive to the unique cultural identity of the client – can range from using therapy materials in the client’s native language, taking into account specific values, beliefs, attitudes, norms, and practices when targeting treatment goals, or conducting therapy within the family’s environment. Ignoring cultural factors and individual needs in psychotherapy can engender miscommunication, discomfort, and client mistrust. As a result, clients may not engage as much in treatment.
