  1. Cultural Competence CP6651

  2. Cultural competency • Is not something we really necessarily achieve. It is an on-going, developmental process we aspire to.

  3. Competency One • Understanding of one’s assumptions, values and biases, particularly as it has to do with race, sexism, heterosexism, able-body-ism, and ageism (meta-cognition)

  4. Competency two • Understanding the worldviews of culturally diverse clients (perspective and empathy). Cognitive empathy may be possible, as distinct from affective empathy.

  5. Competency Three • Understanding the therapy and goals should be consistent with the life experiences and cultural values of the client.
