The purpose of the Cultural Conversations Friday e-mail blast is to provide various tidbits on Cultural and Linguistic Competence (CLC) activities, cultural discovery, interesting information about other cultures, how to be more culturally sensitive to others and updates on statistics and information that are relevant to the work the FAST TRAC system of care is doing with youth and families in Clermont County.


This Week's Cultural Conversation:

Tips for Having Multicultural Discussions

  • It's OK to disagree
  • It's NOT OK to blame, shame, or attack
  • Practice self-focus
  • Notice both process and content
  • Practice "both/and" thinking
  • Be aware of intent and impact
  • Maintain confidentiality
