Culturally Responsive Frameworks: The Importance of Healing Centered Engagement
Though well-intended, implicit bias trainings and multicultural sensitivity workshops are not sufficient to affect meaningful change. Instead, the meaningful change necessary to achieve more culturally sensitive worldviews is more likely to be achieved through a combination of education, internal motivation, and experiential practices that address the experiences of pain, oppression, and discrimination felt by historically marginalized groups.
The following two-hour live webinar provides an introduction to healing centered engagement. Healing centered engagement is a socially just, strength based, and culturally responsive framework that seeks to enhance empathy and personal investment in change while centering culture as a central component in wellbeing. Consistent with this framework, the following training will outline culturally responsive strategies that promote collective healing, enhance ethnic identity, and cultivate resilience.
