Kansas Develops Cultural Awareness Toolkit
A new multimedia toolkit is helping home visitors and other early childhood professionals engage diverse populations and improve practice in cross-cultural settings.
The Cultural Awareness, Respect, and Engagement (C.A.R.E.) Toolkit features a variety of resources that demonstrate the importance of understanding culture and its impact on practice. The toolkit is broken into three sections:
- Webcasts – eight modules ranging from introductory overviews to detailed explanations of different cultural concepts including how culture affects your concept of self relative to others, concepts of time, and nonverbal communication across cultures.
- Working with Specific Populations – interactive webpages featuring resources for specific cultures including Iraqi, Somali, and Burmese.
- Resources – links to additional resources on topics such as working with refugees and becoming culturally competent.
The C.A.R.E Toolkit was developed in partnership with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting and Project LAUNCH programs, and the University of Kansas Center for Public Partnerships and Research. It is posted on the Kansas Home Visiting website.
