Topic: Cultural Competence for Clinicians (4 CE Hours)
Recorded workshop available via video on demand
Human Sexuality Education
True cultural competence feels like…well, nothing. When you are competent, your clients and colleagues get to work and connect with you fully, and trust is built over time. When you don’t, the lack of competence and resulting hurts become the focus, and trust is degraded.
Many harms we do are unintentional, and we do them despite having non-judgement as a value. Because unconscious bias is a natural consequence of living in a biased world, conscious effort and structures are needed to ensure your practice matches your non-judgmental values.
This workshop will explore your own tendencies toward bias and give you ways to outsmart them. We will demystify common diversity/inclusion terms and concepts, and translate them into real life practice. The goal is to equip you so that you feel more comfortable and confident when working across any kind of difference.
