The Role of Cultural Humility in Service Delivery: Challenging Assumptions and Improving Care

Laura Lewis, PhD, LCSW, Filomena Critelli, PhD, and Sarah Richards-Desai, MSW

This workshop introduces the concept of cultural humility as a guiding principle for effective cross-cultural communication. Cultural humility entails working collaboratively with clients, embracing difference, and positioning ourselves as people interested in learning and understanding. Participants will learn strategies for increasing their awareness of unconscious cultural stereotypes and the impact of these on service recipients.
