CHP 670 Multicultural Competence in Community Health and Prevention 3.0 Credits

This course aims to heighten our capacity designing initiatives responsive to the priorities and context of specific communities, including methods for bridging cultural, ethnic, racial, social, and class differences among others. Implicit in cultural competency is a set of congruent behaviors, attitudes, beliefs, and values facilitating engagement with peoples whose backgrounds and experiences may differ from our own. This concept also assumes awareness of one’s cultural identity, self-acceptance, skill walking in others’ shoes, & one’s ability capitalizing on human differences to advance population health. Principles & practices that acknowledge equality in rights & dignity will be applied to gain knowledge & understanding of peoples’ antecedents while increasing our self-knowledge & self-assessment skills.
