Discus Cultural Competence And Cultural Humility

Discus Cultural Competence And Cultural Humility
This video looks at the influence of culture on our personality from the standpoint that culture is not solely created by borders, and that we learn valuable life lessons from others depending on their class, occupation, gender, etc

Discus Cultural Competence And Cultural Humility
This compelling video discusses the concept of “implicit bias” and how it affects our discriminatory thoughts and actions towards others even without us consciously thinking in this manner.
We live in a culturally diverse world. How do we truly understand those around us? This video helps us understand the concept of cultural humility – an ongoing process of self-reflection and self-critique. You will also hear fellow students, faculty and those practicing in the field share their insights into this important concept.

Discus Cultural Competence And Cultural Humility
Two very important concepts are discussed in this video – Cultural Competency and Cultural Humility. They pertain to controlling our biases, how we should strive to adapt both our communication with, and behaviors towards, others as we remain aware of the power imbalances and oppression around present in today’s society.

Abraham Lincoln has the reputation of being the key person in ending slavery in our country. Yet it appears that Lincoln held racist beliefs, as indicated in the following excerpt from a speech he delivered in 1858:
I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races; that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurorsde of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to inter-marry with white people … and in as much as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.
Such a statement needs to be viewed in its historical context. Our country was more racist years ago than it is today. Lincoln, who was in the vanguard of moving for greater equality for African Americans, was also socialized by his culture to have racist attitudes. (The impact of culture on individuals was discussed in Chapter 1.)
A Perspective
Nearly every time we turn on the evening news, we see ethnic and racial conflict—riots, beatings, murders, and civil wars. In recent years we have seen clashes resulting in bloody shed in areas ranging from Afghanistan to Iraq, from Syria to Israel, and from the United States to South America. Practically every nation with more than one ethnic group has had to deal with ethnic conflict. The oppression and exploitation of one ethnic group by another is particularly ironic in democratic nations, considering these societies claim to cherish freedom, equality, and justice. In reality, the dominant group in all societies that controls the political and economic institutions rarely agrees to share equally its power and wealth with other ethnic groups. Ethnocentrism and racism are factors that can adversely affect the growth and development of minority group members.
5-1 Ethnic Groups and Ethnocentrism
LO 1
Discus Cultural Competence And Cultural Humility
An ethnic group has a sense of togetherness, a conviction that its members form a special group, and a sense of common identity or “peoplehood.” An ethnic group is a distinct group of people who share cultural characteristics, such as religion, language, dietary practices, national origin, and a common history, and who regard themselves as a distinct group.
Practically every ethnic group has a strong feeling of ethnocentrism, which is characterized or based on the belief that one’s own group is superior. Ethnocentrism leads members of ethnic groups to view their culture as the best, as superior, as the one that other cultures should adopt. Ethnocentrism also leads to prejudice against foreigners, who may be viewed as barbarians, uncultured people, or savages.

Feelings of ethnic superiority within a nation are usually accompanied by the belief that political and economic domination by one’s own group is natural, is morally right, is in the best interest of the nation, and perhaps also is God’s will. Ethnocentrism has been a factor leading to some of the worst atrocities in history, such as the American colonists’ nearly successful attempt to exterminate Native Americans and Adolf Hitler’s mass executions of more than 6 million European Jews, and millions more gypsies, people with disabilities, and other minority group members.
