The Multicultural Assessment Conference (MAC) is designed to educate psychologists and all clinical professionals on the art of clinical assessment. MAC will offer multiple virtual workshops on a range of topics to include, but not limited to the following: culturally competent assessment measures, the implications of cultural diversity in assessment (e.g., race, ethnicity, SES, religion, trans health needs, sexual orientation), the unique presentation of various disorders in culturally diverse children and adults, and the business of psychological assessment.
The three women who founded MAC did so after many discussions about their mutual concerns about their field. With more than five decades of collective experience, the MAC Conference team seeks to use this annual event to increase the effectiveness and the awareness of cultural sensitivity in the field of psychotherapy.
Both the American Psychological Association and the American Counseling Association have recognized the importance of considering the effect of culture on diagnosis and treatment.
The team has designed interactive, virtual sessions that you can access from wherever you are. Connect and network with your peers and leaders in assessment and testing.
Our experience and openness to continued training enables us to offer effective individualized, diagnostic and assessment care. We provide a safe space and neutral ground to learn, listen and grow.
