Understanding Cultural Humility Through the Lens of Cultural Competence

Social tensions are running high as people tend to make quick judgments and misunderstand each other. It can feel hopeless as some people continue to circle the same issues without trying to learn, grow and implement change. When we are intentional about what we want to learn and seek understanding, we can move towards building bridges and growing hope. This class on Cultural Humility achieves this by providing educational and experiential opportunities to learn and grow.

This course includes the study of multicultural and pluralistic trends, including:

  • Characteristics and concerns of diverse groups
  • Attitudes and behaviors based on factors such as:
    • Age
    • Race
    • Religious preference
    • Physical disability
    • Social class
    • Sexual orientation
    • Ethnicity and Culture
    • Family patterns
    • Gender

The course is specifically designed to expose professionals to the impacts of culture on their profession by understanding individuals from diverse backgrounds. Through exploring the beautifully complex aspects of culture, class participants will grow in self-awareness of their own culture and their own biases. When we are self-aware of these areas, we can more easily learn, grow and understand cultures, attitudes and behaviors different from our own.

Class Objectives:

  • Identify the role of culture in the profession
  • Identify Core Assumptions
  • Gain/Improve cultural competence
  • Integrate cultural humility framework
  • Examine your own cultural awareness
  • Embrace Diversity

Jerry was Amazing!

Jerry was amazing! Jerry uses choice theory in order to help his patients grow and work through their problems...Read more

. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.
