Improving Health Outcomes for Diverse Populations
Part 3: Cultural Humility in the Behavioral Health Space
Anthony President

January 26, 2021, 1-2:30 PM EST

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Behavioral Health Staff support diverse populations throughout the day that may have cultural backgrounds different from their own. It is imperative that workers build a bridge of understanding to better communicate and relate to a broad range of clients. Cultural Humility is a tool that allows workers to explore the culture of others as they explore themselves. Cultural Humility is achieved through respect, open mindedness, and a willingness to learn about diversity. This workshop explores the dynamics of cultural humility and how it can help bridge the gap between staff and diverse clients. “Cultural competence is widely seen as a foundational pillar for reducing disparities through culturally sensitive and unbiased quality care”- (U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services)


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Participants will define cultural humility.
  • Participants will understand cultural humility as a dynamic process that involves self-reflection & self-examination.
  • Participants will examine potential barriers to achieving cultural humility.
  • Participants will use strategies to employ cultural humility in client engagement and delivery to reduce behavioral health disparities.
