Cultural humility is an important component of anti-oppressive practice. Anti-racism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ADEI) is a component that is required in social work education by the Council on Social Work Accreditation (CSWE). The CSWE allows flexibility for how accredited social work schools implement this in education.
The presentation includes a brief overview of the systematic literature review that revealed inadequate empirical evidence for the methods used to teach cultural humility. Three teaching methods were identified and will be discussed: Intergroup dialogue, experiential learning, and reflective writing.
An overview of applicable theories will be explored, including Critical Race Theory, Systems Theory, and Experiential Learning Theory. Implications and a proposed solution to enhance social work education will be proposed.
