The National Institutes of Health (NIH) defines cultural humility as “a lifelong process of self-reflection and self-critique whereby the individual not only learns about another’s culture, but one starts with an examination of her/his own beliefs and cultural identities.” At BCC we try to make that “lifelong process” easier on people. We train our MI with Cultural Humility at the forefront of our minds. Culture goes hand and hand with communication and learning to be able to communicate and understand all cultures while reflecting on one's own cultural beliefs is a key to modern communication.
"BCC to me is way more than just the training we do. We are an organization that opens people's eyes to culture throughout the world. One of the main aspects of communication is cultural identity and how people from different backgrounds communicate with each other. At BCC we know this better than anyone, with our team that comes from all different cultures and backgrounds. Culture is much more than just the color of your skin, at BCC we have undergraduate college students and PhD doctors, old and young, from dentists to teachers and members of the LGBTQ+ community.. We like to think of ourselves as a rainbow organization at BCC with all the colors working as one to train self awareness and evolve cultural identity. Everything in our world is changing, especially cultures and teaching practices. At BCC we use the new modern 4th form of Motivational Interviewing to make sure we are always evolving with the world. With my 22 years of experience from inner city Detroit to Asia, we know cultural humility at BCC."
