Aliento Program Resource Information: Developing Cultural Humility : Understanding How to Engage in Difficult Dialogues
This guide is intended to help the students of the Aliento program discover resources that are available to them through the university library.
This video series demonstrates how to generate more authentic and genuine multicultural dialogues and relationships and is an outgrowth of Dr. Gallardo's book Developing Culturally Humility: Embracing Race, Privilege, and Power. The videos contain dialogues between white psychologists and psychologists who represent historically devalued communities. They discuss their personal and professional journeys and their ongoing goal of centralizing multicultural and social justice issues. The video series instructs viewers how to better situate themselves in difficult dialogues, particularly at times when they might feel offended, don't feel like they belong in the conversation, or simply do not have the energy to continue. These dialogues inform viewers how to think about enhancing their capacity to engage while creating more genuine and authentic multicultural relationships. The videos serve as a useful tool for professional development workshops, classroom discussions, and in professional consultations.

For many students, the word culture is synonymous with race and ethnicity. Yet, a large majority of students who go into counsellor education programs are Caucasian. By its very premise, multicultural therapy leaves out Caucasian individuals, leaving many to believe they have ′no culture′ and feeling disconnected from culture, multiculturalism and social justice. Culture, as it is beginning to be defined, can be seen not as a particular race or ethnicity, rather, as the intersections of multiple identities. Thus, everyone, no matter what their race or ethnicity, has a culture. This book is the first to deal with culture more broadly and attempt to help students examine their own culture. This allows Caucasian trainees to embrace culture and have a stronger connection to multiculturalism without feeling alienated from the discussion.
