Fostering Cultural Humility in Disability Services – Online
April 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Cultural Humility is a lifelong process of self-reflection, practicing other oriented behaviors and having a lack of superiority toward an individual’s cultural background and experience. This workshop is designed to provide tools and strategies to increase multicultural awareness, knowledge, and skills in the competencies necessary to effectively work with and relate to ethnically and culturally diverse clients receiving disability services. Participants will explore a variety of topics including intersectionality, disability justice and advocacy, implicit bias, cross-cultural communication and microaggressions. Participants will be asked to examine their own culture, attitudes, beliefs, and internalized messages. Cultural Humility will be introduced as a process to help build authentic and therapeutic cross-cultural relationships, continue the dialogue about race and will provide a culturally relevant strategic approach to reducing health disparities. Ideal audience includes Disability serving agencies, direct care workers, healthcare and mental health workers, and administration of these field(s).
