Some background on cultural humility:
Introduced in 1988 by Drs. Melanie Tervalon and Jann Murray Garcia, cultural humility transformed cross-cultural education into a model derived from four basic principles: 1) critical self-reflection and lifelong learning; 2) recoginition and mitigation of inherent power inbalances; 3) mutually beneficial non-paternalistic relationships with community members, highlighting the expertise that resides in the community, away from the university, agency, or clinic campus; 4) institutional accountability and alignment.
What to expect:
Portions of the program will be instructional while others will be interactive. There will be opportunities to ask questions, reflect and discuss in pairs and groups. Light breakfast and lunch will be served.
The sessions will be facilitated by Dr. Cheryl Johnson, Dr. Edelmira Reynoso, and Meridith Oram.
