Cultural humility is, “one’s ability to maintain an other-oriented interpersonal stance, even under the strain of cultural differences between the client and counselor” (Davis, et al., 2014, p. 483). This stance in trauma treatment and disaster response is critical when other strains challenge the client and the relationship. This session will present concrete examples of do’s and don’ts in trauma treatment and disaster management that can help facilitate and maintain equity in these areas.
