Cultivating Cultural Humility for Mental Health Providers

Fulfills the Maryland Social Work NEW 3 Hour Cultural Humility Category I requirement. Learn more HERE


Course Overview: 

Cultural humility is an ethical obligation critical to an appropriate therapeutic alliance.  This interactive training will aid practitioners in developing and implementing strategies aimed at courageously identifying their personal biases and beliefs regarding diverse identity groups.  Specifically, training participants will be challenged to embrace an ongoing process of self-exploration and self-critique aimed to facilitate safety when supporting the clinical needs of others deemed “different.” Attendees will gain insights into trauma's intersectionality with cultural identity, differentiate between cultural competency and humility, and learn practical strategies for enhancing diversity appreciation. This training aims to foster client-driven practitioner learning while dismantling the power imbalances that often impede successful therapeutic outcomes. This training provides 3.0 CE credit hours accepted in 48+ states and fulfills the new cultural competency training requirement for Maryland Social Workers.
