One of the most diverse groups of people in the United States are people in Recovery.
Working with this group requires a deep understanding of the interaction of cultural variables that program participants (clients), their families, co-workers, and our diverse communities bring to the Human Services role. These variables affect how we understand the recovery pathway/journey of our participants, assist them with solving problems, and how we communicate—verbally and nonverbally. These cultural variables also influence how we ask questions that evoke the client’s/participant’s self-understanding and knowledge of how substance use and/or addictive behaviors impact themselves and others.
12 Hours of New York Certification Board and OASAS Approved re-credentialing credits will be provided for attending this training.
Cultural competence training is regarded as a tool for anyone who wants to help promote intercultural communication and interpersonal communication. This training sets out to discuss the significance of cultural competence in interpersonal and intercultural communication with our participants.
To facilitate the discussion, the training is divided into three sections.
• The first section provides a brief introduction and includes exercises that provide a space for self-exploration. This section will also include a review of the key terms used in the training;
• The second section discusses the significance of cultural competence in interpersonal and intercultural communication.
• The final section provides a viable conclusion that: “Developing cultural competence is a dynamic and complex process requiring ongoing self-assessment and continuous expansion of one’s cultural knowledge. It evolves over time, beginning with an understanding of one’s own culture, continuing through interactions with individuals from various cultures, and extending through one’s own expansion of knowledge.”
