Diversity Made Simple: Multicultural Awareness Training for Helping Professionals, Lambers Fisher, LMFT, MDiv

Unintentional cultural offenses and misunderstandings often contribute to disconnected personal and professional relationships.  Unfortunately, helping professionals often feel paralyzed by the fear that we don’t know enough about other cultures to try to effectively support those different than themselves.  This training will help reduce those fears by providing an attainable goal for increasing cultural competence, as well as reducing the negative impact of unavoidable cultural misunderstandings on professional rapport and effectiveness.  This relationship-focused training will provide practical language and strategies that can help reduce tensions and perceived barriers and help strengthen cross-cultural relationships.
