Cultural Sensitivity: Subcultures and Ethics - 2nd Edition (Self-Study)


A 2-hour seminar based on the knowledge drawn from the social sciences of Anthropology, Psychology, and Social Epidemiology

Hosted by SWEET Institute


During this 2-hour seminar, we will guide you through an experiential learning where you will:

  1. Unlearn misguided information about culture and subculture
  2. Relearn how to work with any type of client from any background
  3. And learn what it takes to engage anyone, anywhere

You will also learn how to adequately implement all this in daily practice.

When you register, you will start preparing yourself mentally to embark into a new way of practicing with a much higher rate of success, instead of continuing to practice the same way while expecting different results.

"Nice balance between personal anecdotal experiences and factual helpful information. The flow of this webinar seemed smooth - not rushed or too slow at any point." - Elliot, PhD

"Excellent coverage of the topic. Copious amounts of webinars covering great topics." - Leanne, LMSW
