Cultural Humility: Language Matters

Cultural Humility: Language Matters
About the Workshop
This two-hour introductory workshop will explore the concepts of cultural humility in clinical practice. The necessity of self-assessment and personal skill development will be introduced and strategies for increasing personal curiosity will be practiced. Participants will be provided the opportunity to practice case conceptualization from a variety of cultural perspectives. In addition, recent evidence on the connection between language and behavior is analyzed. Strengths-based; person-centered language will be demonstrated following the DSM-5TR guidelines. Finally, participants will be supported as they create a plan to use when engaging clients from various cultures.
