Using Cultural Humility as an Anti-Racist Framework for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Client Care with Kat Alvarado, MA Ed
Course Description

Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities have long been silenced in conversations of equity and social justice. However, the rise of anti-AAPI hate crimes in the last year show that our community needs greater care, safety, and cross-racial understanding. To do this, we must look to cultural humility as a framework to engage in anti-racist client care for AAPI and other communities of color. This workshop will engage the theories and praxes of cultural humility, including its 3 main principles: (1) Lifelong learning and critical self-reflection; (2) Institutional accountability; and (3) Recognizing and challenging inequities. On the topic of inequity, this workshop will discuss the origins of race and its enduring legacies in order to bring greater context and urgency to contemporary issues of institutional racism and health disparities. Lastly, this workshop will conclude with strategies for continuously practicing cultural humility as both service providers and lifelong learners. The Course addresses The National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS)
