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

Jennifer Chapman, LMT, NCTMB

This is the best ethics course I have seen yet. The content was very clear, to the point and very professional. I learned a lot compared to any class I've attended on Ethics.. I also liked being able to print off the material so that I can refer to it in the future. Thanks!

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.

Carter Beckett, LMT

This is truely an interesting, comprehensive. and informative course. I recommend this class to all complementary health care providers, as well as anyone who interested in this disease and it's prevention.

KeriJo Hunt

This course helped re-establish my values and intentions as a massage therapist. Thank you for providing such clear and concise information. I enjoyed the pictures as they served to enforce my learning experience.

Alexander Acimovic, LMT, NCTMB

The course materials were as well put together, easy to follow and understand, and well served to meet my continuing education requirements as all prior CE courses from IIHS have been. I am always severely disappointed to see the promotion of the cult of bureaucratization take over the massage occupation. For example the definition of a client/therapist relationship as an unequal power dynamic, rather than a relationship in which both sides gain mutual benefit; or the idea that "dual" relationships are not something humans are capable of balancing maturely; or the idea that if we do not take continually increasing amounts of CE classes, and feed the growing massage bureacracy industry, that we will not be respected. However, for none of these things do I blame IIHS, which has always provided me with a quality product.
