Enhancing Cultural Humility

Cultural diversity and the rising emphasis on evidence based practice within community based mental health settings have sparked dialogues regarding cultural competence among mental health professionals. Given the complexity of multiculturalism, we have a responsibility to recognize the value and diversity of our clients. Moreover, it is beneficial to understand cultural competency as a process rather than an end product. From this perspective, competency involves more than gaining or practicing scientific knowledge; it also includes our ongoing attitudes and unconscious thought process toward both our clients and ourselves.

We must enter work with diverse families with cultural humility, acknowledging that we are always in the process of learning and growing. This talk has a central aim to enhance the implementation of cultural humility values and skills into daily work with diverse families in community-based settings.
