About the event

Jo explores issues around multidimensional cultural competence which provides training for staff on cultural competence, anti-racism, and unconscious bias. We discuss the Cultural Competency Framework' and learn about each point - we do this by considering 'Intersectionality', 'How it feels to be stretched as a counsellor' and 'Power dynamics'

  • The affective element involving attitudes such as sensitivity, respect and openness to difference: this emotional mindset helps in terms of building positive relations between cultures.
  • The cognitive element or the learning around cultural difference (or similarity): the premise is that prior knowledge of differences across cultures helps in terms of developing better relationships and avoiding cross-cultural misunderstanding.
  • The behavioural element or the skills needed to work across cultures: these may range from individual verbal and non-verbal skills, and skills in working with interpreters to broader community development skills or even skills at policy development
