Provider Training Opportunities

CBH encourages and promotes provider growth and development through the use of educational training. Providers can participate in various training opportunities through the CBH Provider Training and Development (PT&D) Unit, which can be accessed through the DBHIDS Learning Management System.

PT&D offers all CBH-contracted providers virtual training on clinical processes, supervision, and specialty topics monthly and quarterly. Additionally, we work collaboratively with providers through the technical assistance process to create and implement individualized action plans to address organizational goals. If you have any training or technical assistance questions, contact CBH PT&D at cbh.ptdtechnicalassistance@phila.gov.

Improving Cultural Competency Training

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) hosts a free training opportunity on Improving Cultural Competency for Behavioral Health Professionals. Cultural and linguistic competency is recognized as an important strategy for improving the quality of care provided to clients from diverse backgrounds. These trainings are designed to help mental health and substance use disorder (SUD) professionals respond to the unique needs of the populations they serve, especially historically marginalized populations, by reviewing cultural and language competency, increasing awareness of their own cultural and biases, and learning about clients’ cultural identities and specific needs. The training consists of four courses with an estimated completion time of 4-5.5 hours. The courses include:

  1. An introduction to cultural and linguistic competency

  2. Know thyself – Increasing self-awareness.

  3. Knowing others – Increasing awareness of your client’s cultural identity.

  4. Culturally and linguistically appropriate interventions and services
