GUIDE Cultural Competency for the Prevention Professional
April 1, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$50.00
This course, approved by the Prevention Credentialing Consortium of Georgia as a Core Course, will give Prevention Professionals a refresher in cultural awareness and appropriateness in the prevention field. At a young age, most people learn how to recognize differences more quickly than similarities and how to dislike others who are not like us. In our ever-increasing diverse communities, understanding, tolerance, and appreciation for differences are necessary to running effective prevention programs. This session will include activities and discussions exploring cultural diversity and prejudices in a safe environment in order to learn how to increase cultural competence and create safe spaces in your programs and organizations. Bring an open mind, as we will discuss critical diversity issues such as racism, ageism, heterosexism, and sexism.
Registration for this course closes at 5 pm EST on March 18, 2022.
