[Download Now] Multicultural Awareness & Diversity: Strategies to Improve Client Rapport & Cultural Competence – Leslie Korn
I remember the first time I provided treatment in Mexico and how scary it was to realize how much I didn’t know about their culture. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to interpret signs of my clients’ distress or understand their needs.
I realized that much of my knowledge base didn’t fit for every client, especially clients of different cultures, ethnicities, religions or sexual identities. Not feeling comfortable with clients who are different from us can prevent us from delivering the best treatment.
As I spent more time in Mexico, I discovered that the skills of cultural competency can be applied across all groups. I spent more time studying my own roots, uncovering my personal biases and researching other ethnicities and cultures. Since then I’ve had the opportunity to do clinical work with several different cultural groups around the U.S.
As a result, I feel that I can treat anyone, regardless of their background. Even if I don’t know a lot about their culture, I am comfortable asking my client to teach me what is important to them.
