WEBINARS on cross-cultural communication, ACEs, addiction, compassion fatigue, poverty, and child maltreatment

Building Skills for Cross Cultural Communication Part 2 on 9/23 (Part 1 is available any time here)

3-4:30pm on Wednesday, September 23

Cultural competence is essential to achieve patient-centered or client-centered care. This workshop from the Mental Health Technology Transfer Center Network will continue the work of enhancing skills and knowledge to work more effectively in a multicultural setting. Participants will explore stereotypes and enhance skills for interrupting bias. Sometimes we hear others say demeaning, degrading, or hurtful comments and lack skills to interrupt and redirect the intentional or unintentional behavior. This workshop provides skills to interrupt bias in a healthcare setting using a video titled “Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts,” and will conclude with points on what it means to be culturally competent.

“Poverty, Not the Poor” from the UC Davis Center for Poverty Research on 10/16

3-4:30pm on Friday, October 16
In recognition of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, the Center for Poverty Research will be hosting a welcome back event with special guest David Brady of UC Riverside. Following Professor Brady’s talk, we will be hosting breakout sessions for informal conversation and continued discussion.

Scholars, commentators, politicians and the public tend to think about American poverty as a ‘problem of persons.’ The poor are in poverty because of individuals’ bad behavior, risks, pathological cultures, or innate traits. This leads us to concentrate on the poor as individuals and distracts us from the systemic problem of high poverty in the U.S. The Right tends to focus on behavior and culture, mistakenly arguing that fixing behavior, eliminating risks, and improving culture would substantially reduce poverty. The Left tends to focus on emotive selections of poor people, exotifying and mischaracterizing the population in poverty. Several examples from recent research will be presented to show how both the Right and the Left focus on the poor and misunderstand poverty. Political and structural theories of poverty will be advanced as a better way to understand poverty and not just the poor.
