Guest Lecture Series: Arab American Occupational Therapy Group Lecture on Cultural Humility

This session addresses cultural humility in occupational therapy practice and professional communication. Differences between cultural humility and other terms used interchangeably will be highlighted. The topic is discussed considering the complex nature of a client’s diversity.

The Macro-Micro-Model of Diversity (MMMD) will be discussed, which offers strategies to employ cultural humility in clinical assessment and evaluation. The presentation will be interactive, where attendees will be asked to reflect on pictures of culturally diverse activities of daily living.

This session is delivered by the Arab American Occupational Therapy Group (AAOTG) www.aaotg.org
