Developing Cultural Competence in a Multicultural Society

Commitment to cultural competence is growing among healthcare professionals and providers. This interactive workshop will explore cultural competence from a global perspective and demonstrate how all healthcare professionals, specifically social workers, care managers and mental health professionals, can infuse cultural competence into their practice. This training will provide comprehensive strategies to respond to the healthcare needs of a diverse population. Participants will learn the difference between cultural awareness and cultural competence. The workshop will address different learning styles by including classroom discussion, individual and group activities. Participants will ultimately learn to utilize cross-cultural skill based approaches that can be universally applied.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
