Beyond Cultural Competence:
Cultural Humility in
Clinical Practice

Health Priorities Training

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Cultural humility is an ethical obligation critical to an appropriate therapeutic alliance.  While cultural competence focuses on the ability to knowledgably work with individuals from different cultures or backgrounds, cultural humility goes beyond and aims at helping clinicians to acknowledge their own biases to more effectively work with those from differing backgrounds. This interactive training will begin with understanding the differences between cultural competence and cultural humility. Participants will work on developing and implementing strategies aimed to courageously identify their personal bias and beliefs regarding diverse identify groups.  Specifically, training participants will be challenged to embrace an ongoing process of self-exploration and self-critique aimed to facilitate safety when supporting the clinical needs of others deemed “different.”  This training aims to foster client-driven practitioner learning while dismantling the power-imbalances that often-impede successful therapeutic outcomes while.

Course Level: Beginner

Target Audience: Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors, Psychologists, Addictions Counselors, other mental health professionals
