The Level 2 series of the Cultural Sensitivity Training takes the conversation around culture and language accessibility one step further. In this workshop participants will have a short review of the Level 1 training’s definition of culture and the characteristics of the language-learning brain. The workshop will dig deeper into implicit bias surrounding culture. Participants will learn how cultural biases could be present in interpersonal communications, service delivery, and bedside manner. Not only does culture influence the way that patients receive information, but it also plays a role in how service providers receive and interpret patient communication and nonverbal cues like body language. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own daily practice and look for ways that they could provide more equitable services to foreign-born patients and clientele. By becoming more aware of cultural biases in practice and interpersonal communication, service providers can be more understanding of cultural dissonance their foreign-born patients may experience and can hopefully avoid miscommunications or misunderstandings in the future.
