How do you ask about clients’ cultural identities on your intake paperwork? Did you ever receive specific training about how to do this? In this Session we present our research findings about how clinicians ask for cultural identities on intake paperwork. We identify common issues, the implicit messages clients may receive from initial paperwork and practical solutions for making your intake paperwork more inclusive, accurate and affirmative with the aim of attracting and retaining underserved client populations.
