Diversity: Cultural Competence - 1 CE Hour

Diversity: Cultural Competence CE Course Materials

Massage therapists are increasingly working in various medical settings - physician's offices, long term care facilities, hospitals - and the population of the United States continues to become more ethnically diverse. As a result, it is important that as health care providers working as part of a multi-disciplinary team we become more familiar with the cultural differences of our clients to become more sensitive to their perspective so that we may provide the best care. Additionally, it is important that we impart sensitivity to other cultures, and to our support staff, so that each person we are in contact with is treated with consideration.

Course Reviews

Barbara Thaler, LMT, NCTMB

This course raised my awareness of cultural differences that affect quality of health care in a massage practice. There were several specific examples given that I will remember for the future. Living in such a diverse area as metropolitan DC, this course was essential.

Teresa Luechtefeld, LMT, NCTMB

May I say wow. I've taken 4 HIV classes since becoming a massage therapist. This was much, much better than any of them. Well writen, interesting, and compassionate without being sappy. Thank you for making this requirement enjoyable.

Bruce A. Lederer, LMT, NCTMB

The material is clear, informative and interestingly written. It took a subject that many of us have heard and/or read many times yet it,cleared out the cob webs and brought the subject clearly back to the forefront--in a crystal clear manner.

Danielle DiLaura LMT

I enjoyed this course very much. Although I know and recognize what ethics and professionalism are in the massage practice, I enjoyed the refresher. I found it very interesting and applicable, since lines can so easily be blurred in this profession. thank you very much!

Lydia Overton, LMT, NCTMB

I found the explanations of what a client may be experiencing emotionally and cognitively especially helpful, along with suggestions of how to respond with patience and simple and clear communication.
