Creating A Culturally Responsive Environment
A common phrase that is used in times of crisis is, “We’re all in this together.” While that may be true, the impacts of the crisis do not affect all people equally. In the case of COVID-19, we know that the virus is most dangerous to those that have underlying health conditions – the sick, the frail, and the elderly. As we are seeing that Black and Brown people are disproportionately affected by this disease, an understanding is emerging that many of those underlying health conditions are based on disparities in our health system, which are tied to inequities in our economic systems.
The Sanctuary® Model has Seven Commitments which encourage building relationships that support healing and recovery from trauma, including trauma resulting from exposure to racism and other forms of oppression. In this workshop, we will explore using a trauma-informed, values-based approach to address implicit bias and systemic oppression in organizational cultures and systems of care.
- be able to demonstrate an understanding of the traumatic impacts of racism and other forms of oppression
- be able to define systemic oppression, implicit bias and micro aggressions
- be able to identify how the Seven Commitments help to mitigate the impacts of systemic oppression, implicit bias and microaggressions.
