This training will offer practical information to help participants better provide culturally responsive support to system impacted youth and families. This course will review the concept of cultural humility, originally developed by Doctors Melanie Tervalon and Jann Murray-Garcia (1998) to address health disparities and institutional inequities in medicine. The facilitator will also explore the concept of intersectionality, coined by American Civil Rights Advocate and Professor Kimberly Krenshaw. Specific ways that providers can introduce conversations about culture with system impacted youth and families will be introduced. There will also be review of child-friendly developmentally appropriate ways to invite cultural conversations with children. Participants should expect to leave with tools for integrating diversity-informed practice into the flow of their everyday work with the youth that they serve.
