Abstract

The United States is an increasingly diverse nation, and there is a need to consider culturally modifying interventions to better serve clients. In this study, the Toolkit for Modifying Evidence-Based Practices to Increase Cultural Competence was used to culturally modify evidence-based practices (EPBs) in two agencies. Research questions addressed whether the Toolkit model could be implemented as written with no additional guidance and whether administrators believed the culturally modified interventions would benefit clients. Both agencies found the Toolkit worthwhile. Working groups at both sites were able to successfully complete modification projects by culturally modifying and implementing an EBP.
