This is about the interaction between family involvement in behavioral health systems of care and cultural and linguistic competence. It describes FDC from 4 cultural perspectives -- the world views, beliefs, values, traditions, customs, and languages of Asian, Black, First Nations, and Latino families. Behavioral health care in the U.S., is grounded in and operates within a western cultural perspective. This orientation toward treatment and what is expected of families sometimes clash -- with the cultural orientation and expectations of the children, youth, and families receiving services. This paper begins the discussion about how to build trust through better cross-cultural respect and understanding. Illus. A print on demand report.
