Presentation learning objectives
This workshop is designed to help you: 

  1. Understand how cultural competency has evolved over time.
  2. Recognize why our current approach to cultural competency training is inefficient.
  3. Understand and explain to other a new model that is rooted in theoretical and empirical science. 
  4. Understand and explain to others, in a practical manner, how to implement this model so that trainees learn skills to effectively communicate and function within any given diverse context or encounter. 
  5. Recognize possible challenges to implementing this skill-based model, as well as, potential ways of circumventing such challenges.
