Continuing the Conversation: Moral Principles and Cultural Humility

Friday, October 20, 2023 , 9:00 am 12:00 pm

Facilitated by Anita Mandley (she/her), this virtual workshop focuses on Cultural Humility and the moral principles that shape our ethical attunement to our clients. We will explore how our own personal history has shaped our own biases and how they impact our intentions and behaviors as therapists, counselors, and healers. We will explore the complicated issues of justice as a principle of ethical care, and their connection to the issues of diversity, inclusivity, and equality. The workshop will include didactic material as well as video presentations, experiential opportunities, and discussions.

Learning Objectives:

– Understand the distinction between cultural competency and cultural humility

– Understand inherent dynamics between clients and counselors regarding locations of privilege and marginalization

– Increase their awareness of their vulnerabilities and resources for ethical attunement given the reality of their own history and biases

– Learn an ecology of Ethics/Social Justice and locations of client and practitioner identities

– Learn how to integrate cultural humility into the system of moral care

– Learn how to enact the four major principles of ethical client care
