As the 21st century has moved forward, the ethnic, cultural, and linguistic makeup of NJ has been changing steadily. Cultural and linguistic competence is a set of congruent behaviors, attitudes, and policies that come together in a system, agency, or among professionals that enables effective work in cross-cultural situations. This workshop will provide participants with techniques to enhance their ability to provide appropriate services to all populations, while recognizing their own cultural/linguistic background or life experience and that of their client.

Workshop Objectives:  At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Define cultural and linguistic competency;
  • Analyze and interpret their individual cultural and linguistic competency;
  • Examine the impact of inadequate cultural and linguistic competency on the individual, organizational and systems level;
  • Identify and articulate turn-key strategies to enhance the cultural and linguistic effectiveness of service provision on the micro- and macro level.
