Cultural humility is a humble and respectful attitude toward individuals of other cultures and identities that pushes one to challenge their own cultural biases, realize they cannot possibly know everything about other cultures, and approach learning about other cultures as a lifelong goal and process. Cultural humility encourages active participation to learn about a client's personal and cultural experiences and identities.
Furthermore, understanding and connecting to our own histories and identities is an important step in developing cultural humility. Not only does this help us make space for understanding others, but it can also help us in formulating our own clinical approaches.
