Happy Holidays, friends. We have a present for you. Chris Budnick, MSW, LCSW, LCAS, CCS and founding board chair for RCNC brings us Clinical Humility. For decades, folks seeking help for alcohol and other drug problems have shouldered the entire burden of blame when treatment doesn’t work. But what was our part? Chris addresses this question with An open amends letter to persons with substance use disorder, their families and community, prompting Bill White to publish A Call for Clinical Humility.
We are honored also to have Vivette Jeffries-Logan present Cultural Humility. While the traditional training, Cultural Competence, encourages us to look outward to increase our knowledge and mastery of other cultural elements, Cultural Humility prompts us to look inward. It focuses on self-humility and an acknowledgment of privilege to improve our effectiveness working with diversity by maintaining an inter-personal stance that is other-oriented.
The purpose of the Community Recovery Education Series is to provide relevant and accessible information about the complex issues helpers may encounter. These free educational and networking events will be held on the final Thursday of every month from 9 am to 12 pm at RCNC’s RCC, 5245 Capital Blvd. Training satifies 3 contact hours of continuing education for certified peer support specialists. Coffee and light morning snacks will be provided.
