In the helping profession, we work with individuals, families, and communities with diverse backgrounds, therefore, we understand the value of maintaining a multicultural framework. In addition to the complexities of working with youth and families from a multicultural perspective, we are also supporting families as they manage generations of trauma. Therefore, being able to remain self-reflective and consistently hold a framework of cultural humility and trauma informed care can be overwhelming. This training is designed to support providers with building on their current skills so that they can effectively engage and support diverse groups of people while maintaining a trauma informed lens. In order to build on those skills, it is important to build on our awareness and understanding of cultural humility, which involves being open to the other. As we strengthen our ability to be open to the other, we will be open to shaping and adapting our support, interactions, and service delivery to be culturally responsive rather than taking a “one size fits all” way of delivering services.
