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:
- Religious preference
- Physical disability
- Social class
- Sexual orientation
- Ethnicity and Culture
- Family patterns
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.
- Identify the role of culture in the profession
- Identify Core Assumptions
- Gain/Improve cultural competence
