"What is Cultural Competence" should be taken by any professional working with others and serving any population. As an empower, productive service provider in any field, this course provides tools and insight necessary to best understand the rich diversity of American society as it is today. While it is important to recognize that humans are humans, there are varying degrees of difference that enable us to be providers who have that additional compassion and empathy that make service recipients get the service they deserve, with fewer misunderstandings based on cultural differences.
This course touches on the reality that cultural differences are no longer limited to birthplace, religion, or heritage, but also on customs, lifestyle, use of language, and interpretation of differences.
