Coalitions Rising Session 3: "Intercultural Communications and Community Engagement"
Living in vibrant, culturally diverse communities, can enhance and enrich our lives – if we are willing to do the work to understand and respect those diverse cultures. Culture is a complex concept with many different definitions. A single culture has many sub-cultures. Culture plays an important role in how people express themselves, seek help, cope with stress, and develop social supports. Respectful and effective communications in Public Health and Prevention require a willingness to look at our own cultural values and how these impact the ways we communicate with others. Incorporating Cultural Humility into Communications and Community Engagement Practices around Gambling Disorder as a Public Health Issue requires us to do the work of gaining a better understanding of the culture, history, traditions, values, and societal impacts on the daily lives of people from diverse backgrounds. In any culture, there can be differences between what one knows about any Public Health issues, including the impacts of Gambling Disorder, and how people feel about these issues. This session will focus on the mutual exchange of ideas and relationship building that will make Intercultural Communications and Community Engagement stronger and more effective.
