Multicultural Awareness & Diversity: Powerful Rapport Building Strategies for Helping Professionals


Heighten your sense of cultural awareness to build rapport with clients in need.

Unintentional cultural offenses and misunderstandings often contribute to disconnected personal and professional relationships. Unfortunately, helping professionals often feel paralyzed by the fear that they don't know enough about other cultures to try to counsel clients different than themselves. This information will help reduce those fears by providing an attainable goal for increasing cultural competence and practical strategies for reducing the negative impact of unavoidable cultural misunderstandings on professional rapport and effectiveness.
