From Cultural Humility to Cultural Acceptance [course]

From Cultural Humility to Cultural Acceptance

(Evolution & Understanding)

 

Note: This “official” CYGM course will soon be developed for all to utilize.

 

This course is designed to address the way we view culture, and how our perspectives impact our thoughts and behaviors within and/or towards individuals who represent culturally diverse communities, knowingly or unknowingly. It is through honest self-reflection and self-critique that we can understand the impact our environments have/had on shaping the lens we use to see the world. The logic for such an approach is, once an individual can recognize the “why” of his/her own thoughts and behaviors, he/she may also be able to identify with the “why” of the thoughts and behaviors of others. This can potentially lead to the removal of invisible/implicit barriers that exist between and among cultures, and the restoration of best practices within all areas of social services.

 

“If the practice of Cultural Humility can contribute to an individual developing a deeper understanding of the world he/she can see, then the practice of Cultural Acceptance can contribute to the same individual seeing a world that he/she deeply understands.” –Bikbaye
