How do you navigate diverse cultural identities when your clients’ beliefs, values, or goals differ from your own?


Many mental health professionals today recognize the importance of cultural background (race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, faith, etc.) and the impact it has on one’s worldview; however, these issues can be difficult to address as a counselor, psychologist, or social worker. The concept of “cultural humility” is one framework that can help mental health professions meet the needs of their diverse clients in a more effective way. Explore this topic at our conference, “Cultural Humility and Christian Hospitality: A Dialogue on Diverse Identities in Counseling” on March 24, 2023, from 8 a.m.– 4 p.m. (CST).


Join Chicagoland counselors, psychologists, and social workers and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School alumni, faculty, and students for a day of dialogue, professional development, fellowship, and networking. In this conference you will hear from author and licensed psychologist Joshua Hook and reflect on ways to grow in cultural humility, how cultural humility aligns with a Christian life, practical strategies for engaging cultural humility in the therapy room, as well as professional ethics.


We hope this day fosters community. Breaks between sessions will provide an opportunity to reconnect with a classmate, catch up with a faculty member, or invest in choice networking. You may find yourself sitting next to a future intern or fellow clinician!


Refreshments and lunch provided.


This conference is hosted by Trinity Evangelical Divinity School’s Counseling Department, with support from Amedco in order to provide continuing education credits.
