Gone, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychology (Clinical Area) and American Culture (Native American Studies) at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor talks about cultural competence: what is it, what is the relationship between evidence-based practice and cultural competence and how does cultural competence relate to mental health care and mental health care for Indigenous populations in particular?
