Culturally Responsive Practice

Conversations about culture and identity


This class uncovers how our cultural identities and experiences shape the way we make meaning of the world and relate to others. Outcomes are usually improved when services are adapted to a person’s cultural needs and preferences. As such, effective workers can skillfully navigate cultural conversations and form sustainable working relationships with the people they support. This training looks at practical strategies for learning about an individual within the context of their culture, including the DSM 5 Cultural Formulation tool. 

Learning Objectives

  • Define culture, social location, and cultural humility

  • Explore unacknowledged cultural differences and power differentials

  • Consider how culturally responsive care can be used to address disparities

  • Review strategies for asking about a person’s cultural identity and influences
