Cultural Humility: My Life in Alcohol and Drugs

Monday, February 10, 2014

Cultural humility is a way for therapists to listen to themselves and their clients, to negotiate shared understandings and to create an authentic dialogue that has the potential to change both parties. It is a lifelong practice, not an endpoint. In this talk I'll share some of the landscape of my ongoing walk with cultural humility as I continue my work with individuals who use alcohol and drugs.

Speaker: Dr. Perri Franskoviak is Assistant Professor of Psychology and Counseling Psychology at HNU.
