We have a unique profession in that we do not provide a one-time service but instead provide multiple services and care across the person’s lifetime. Our practice is enhanced when we have greater insight into and respect for the person’s culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, etc. Attendees will learn how to do an ethnographic interview, how diversity within and across cultures affects decision making, and how our own perspective may be influencing our practice.
