The culture in which a person lives impacts their attitudes, thoughts, feelings, and actions. Offering culturally responsive services to a broad range of individuals takes mindfulness and intentionality. No matter the cultural context, all individuals must be valued and honored for who they are. The presentation will focus on the use of asset vs deficit based language, and building meaningful relationships. The speaker will share promising practices for working in rural, suburban, and urban settings using a culturally responsive trauma-informed lens and share strategies for self-care and issues related to compassion fatigue, and sustainability.
