Cultural Competency is a foundational ethical standard for all helping professionals. Although how can one ever become “competent” in a culture that is not their own? While good intentioned, this creates a dynamic that sets the clinician as the expert and the client as “the other” – implying that the provider knows better than the client, their experience, and their needs. In recent years, a conceptual shift to practicing cultural humility to build honest and trustworthy relationships with clients has been happening in multiple sectors of public health.
