Cultural Humility:

Fostering a Deeper Therapeutic Connection

Cultural humility is the ability to maintain an interpersonal stance that is other-oriented (or open to the other) in relation to aspects of cultural identity that are most important to the person.


This training will enhance practitioners’ capacity to build healthy relationships with both professionals and clients from different cultural backgrounds than themselves. Participants will gain new levels of self-respect, respect for others, and learn how to harmoniously engage with people from varying cultural backgrounds.
