This training is designed to provide participants with an overview of the impact helping organizations have on diverse ethnic and racial groups, cultures, social classes, and groups with minority status in the US. The training will focus on helping participants develop attunement to one's own cultural value system through cultural self-assessment and exploration of inequity in our work. The values and attitudes of diverse ethnocultural groups in cross-cultural environments will be discussed. The application of a multicultural lens and anti-racist stance when engaging a diversity of cultures will be addressed. Most significant, participants will be able to enhance personal engagement styles with clients, especially empowering the voices of the silenced narrative and/or institutionally oppressed. The training will include some lecture, small group exercises, discussions, videos/films, and guest speakers when applicable.
