Explore cultural differences through a research-informed schema to facilitate cross-cultural understanding. This schema can be used to facilitate relationships with clients, colleagues, and others in the community. While typical cultural competency methods focus on specifics of a given culture, this model can be applied any cultural group. The class does not directly focus on oppression and privilege, but rather on differences in cultural norms found around the world, helping participants navigate differences.

Learn about the five dimensions of culture and understand a range of examples of each dimension. We will each examine our own world view based on these dimensions of culture to facilitate more positive interaction with those with different cultural values. Class size is limited to 50.
