This workshop provides an interactive exploration of issues in providing culturally competent services to victims of crime. Through a series of activities and case studies, the training explores the challenges and benefits of providing culturally competent care for victims and how services can be more effective when they are delivered within the most relevant and meaningful cultural, gender-specific, and age-appropriate context. Also included is a review of provider competencies (i.e., knowledge, skills, attitudes, interpersonal decision-making) that are critical to effectively serving victims of crime from diverse populations. Key topics include:

What is cultural competence?
Stereotyping; cross-cultural communication; and language and interpreter bias.
Barriers to effective victim assistance.
Envisioning a culturally competent victim service program.
