The privatization of Medicaid behavioral health services has heightened the need to ensure the provision of culturally competent services to beneficiaries of care. Consequently, providers need to incorporate the importance of culture and an ability to consider cross-cultural relations in the assessment and treatment of many consumers. The author maintains that to effectively accomplish this requires an understanding of the dynamics that result from natural differences and a commitment to the adaptation of skills that meet the unique and diverse needs of culturally distinct populations.-Eds.
