Workshop Description 

Cultural competence plays a vital role in providing culturally appropriate and supportive services to victims of crime. As the field gains more understanding about personal histories and trauma, many service providers want to gain a deeper understanding of the intersection of trauma and culture within the provision of victim services. This training will discuss how understanding and incorporating cultural humility on both a personal and an organizational level can enhance culturally informed support and responses to crime victims.
