Health outcomes are determined by multiple factors, including socioeconomic status, geographic location, and current health status. Importantly, race, ethnicity, and cultural dynamics also impact health and well-being. Therefore, approaching individuals with cultural humility can be a key element of success. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), “Cultural humility is a process of self-reflection and discovery in order to build honest and trustworthy relationships. Peer workers play a necessary role in building relationships and linking individuals to the healthcare system using skill, compassion, and cultural sensitivity.
On June 28, the Peer Recovery CoE hosted a Peer Active Training on cultural humility (view recording here.). The participants’ contributions and questions inspired the idea for this follow-up webinar, designed to provide participants with additional information on cultural approaches grounded in humility and opportunities to discuss how to apply them in daily work environments. This session will be interactive, and participants will be able to ask questions to contribute to the discussion. Upon the completion of this event, participants will be able to:
- Further define and apply cultural humility in work settings;
- Better use cultural humility to approach individuals and meaningfully engage various communities;
- Further describe peer worker roles, responsibilities, challenges, and strengths while working with various populations; and
- Better understand the importance of peers in increasing health equity and reducing health disparities in their respective communities.
