About the Workshop:

Due to the rapidly shifting demographics of our world and our local communities, psychologists are increasingly rising to the ethical challenges of enhancing their cultural humility across multiple spheres of human functioning. In today’s clinical practice, we must broaden our ethical practices to include not only respect, but also deeper understanding and connection; not only for adults, but also for children and adolescents; not only by ethnicity, but also by socioeconomic class, gender, disability, faith, sexuality, and other categories of difference. This educational program will provide specific guidance in the practical application of the values, principles, and standards of the “Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct.” Ultimately, we are striving for not only the absence of mental illness, but also the flourishing of mental health and wellness.

Dr. Armstrong will utilize a combination of didactic material, video, experiential exercises, and group discussion to assist participants in embracing a deeper ethic of cultural humility.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
1. Describe at least four traditional barriers to cultural humility in clinical practice.
2. Assess at least four aspects of their own cultural narratives that may come into conflict with client narratives.
3. Apply a model that facilitates cultural sensitivity in clinical practice.
4. Discuss three steps that can further enhance the clinical practice of cultural humility.


This presentation is intended for psychologists, other licensed mental health providers, and graduate students of psychology. Seating is limited, so register early!
