Intersectionality in Clinical Neuropsychology: Its Application When Working with Linguistically-Diverse Patients Across the Lifespan Patients do not exist within discrete demographic groups. Instead, they hold intersecting characteristics that impact brain development, influence the expression of neurological diseases, and dictate how they interact with and within healthcare systems. As such, neuropsychological work with culturally and linguistically diverse patients requires a nuanced understanding of the unique challenges relevant to different social groups (i.e., limited access to culturally informed evaluations, reduced false positives/false negatives in clinical diagnosis) and warrants expanded competencies on the part of the professional to ensure accurate diagnosis and appropriate follow-up intervention(s). Applied Experience Breakouts: 1. Case Presentation 2. Evaluation Day 3. Case Conceptualization 4. Feedback Session 5. Pediatric Evaluations *Special Considerations* This CE course will review basic concepts of intersectionality, highlight the heterogeneity among underserved cultural communities (UCCs), and describe their application to different aspects of the neuropsychological assessment. While the emphasis will be on the Hispanic population, the concepts discussed will have relevance when conducting assessments with other UCCs. In the workshop-style portion of this event, attendees will have the opportunity to work through clinical cases, integrating constructs of intersectionality. Participants will receive neuropsychological cases and navigate through several stations where issues pertinent to intersectionality for the given case will be highlighted. In the end, participants will accumulate resources, materials, and knowledge that can be applied in their daily practice. Learning Objectives At the end of this session participants will be able to: 1. Assess some of the complexities and nuances of conducting a neuropsychological assessment with UCCs and expand beyond categorizing patients into discrete demographic groups like race and/or ethnicity. 2. Explain how to conduct a clinical interview from a culturally informed perspective. 3. Design a more tailored and culturally appropriate assessment including norm and language selection and discuss how to interpret results when patients are not well represented in normative samples (e.g., extreme ends of education levels, bilingual patients, etc.) 4. Use the information learned in session to provide feedback to patients from UCCs.
