Cultural Humility

!!Note!! Parts 1 and 2 are up, but check back for updates on part 3!

The practice of cultural humility falls under many themes and topics. For our purposes here, we've connected this practice as an extension of trauma-informed lawyering, a concept that our team believes in whole-heartedly. Check out this short blog on how we've assumed this connection.

Target Audience

This resource is targeted towards legal service providers but can be useful for anyone seeking to include cultural humility as a practice in their own work.

Prior to Using this Toolkit

This toolkit is a 3-part series with each video focusing on one of the three main principles, or commitments, of practicing cultural humility. It is mean to be viewed alongside, or after reviewing, our advisory on cultural humility. Additionally, more information on cultural humility can be found in our curated airtable collection on Trauma-Informed Lawyering. 

Practicing Cultural Humility - Part 1

Let's take a look at the first principle of practicing cultural humility: To commit oneself to an ongoing process of self-awareness and inquiry, supported by a community of trusted, and cognitively-diverse colleagues.

 

Practicing Cultural Humility - Part 2

We dive into the second principle of practicing cultural humility: To be open and teachable, striving to see cultures as our clients see them, rather than as we have come to know or define them.
