Culturally Sensitive Therapy

Culture influences not only how we see ourselves in the world but our expectations about how we understand others. Cultural sensitivity is being aware that culture differences and similarities exist without giving them particular value. The relevance of cultural diversity will continue to become more important as our definition of society embraces global issues. There are therapists that incorporate cultural sensitivity into their work to accommodate and respect differences in various cultures and different types of people.

Our culture shapes who we are and how we relate to the work in subtle ways. This is an important component of the work that I do. Creating greater insight into how culture impacts our daily functioning, in both good and not-so-good ways, helps us to have a greater understanding of why we react to things the way we do.
