Cultivating Empathy and Cultural Humility Across Cultures
Cultural humility is an approach to intercultural understanding that is different from cultural competency. Cultural humility incorporates an understanding that one’s cultural learning is never complete but rather a lifelong practice of gathering knowledge about differences, as well as continuing to critically reflect upon one’s own values and beliefs.
In this course, participants will come to an understanding about the general concept of cultural humility, framing it as a lifelong practice. Adding to its lifelong approach, participants will also see it as a life wide practice. Life wide learning means that learning is not kept separate in one area, rather it has an impact in many areas of one’s personal and professional lives. This training asserts that cultural humility is both a lifelong and a life wide practice.
