"Culture" encompasses shared beliefs, values, rules, and practices. If we try to assess and diagnose developmental and mental health challenges without considering culture, we risk misunderstanding, misdiagnosis, and missed connections. This talk explores the intersection of culture and diagnosis, considering cultural explanations of a child's difficulties, cultural factors related to the child's environment, and cultural features of the relationship between the parents/caregivers and the clinician. Integration of these perspectives in the process of assessment and diagnosis will be illustrated with the use of a case vignette, with a particular focus on autism spectrum disorder. Learning goals for this event include: 

  • Identify two reasons that culture must be considered to accurately diagnose children.
  • Explain the key components of the Cultural Formulation for Infants and Young Children in the Diagnostic Classification for 0 – 5.
  • Articulate the application of the Cultural Formulation when assessing a child for autism spectrum disorder

Many clinicians who use the DC:0-5 manual and provide diagnoses for young children do not explicitly consider the DC:0-5 Cultural Formulation. This webinar will help clinicians to reflect on the importance of the Cultural Formulation, apply it to a case vignette, and practice applying it to their own clinical work.
