Building upon prior coursework and experiences, students will continue to address issues related to cultural diversity and cultural competence as they relate to occupational therapy practice. Areas of cultural awareness, cultural knowledge, and cultural skills will be addressed. Students will increase awareness of their own cultural values and beliefs as well as of the impact of culture on interpersonal exchanges; gain knowledge about cultural competence and different cultural groups; and develop skills to support effective cross-cultural experiences. Students will also create a professional development plan to support growth in cultural competence.
