Diversity Matters, Part 2: Cultural Competency in DV Programs

Event Date
Wednesday, August 09, 2017, 11:00AM

Cultural competency, or the skill of being well-versed in many different cultures, is important for those working in the community especially with domestic violence survivors. In contrast to using our own culture as a standard by which to judge other cultures, cultural relativism (a prerequisite for cultural competency) allows one to understand a culture on its own terms, including norms of relating to each other and roles within a relationship. In this webinar, we will question the cultures deeply embedded within us while at the same time seeking to understand a variety of different lifestyles and family structures.
