Since America is growing more diverse, cultural awareness has become more vital for day-to-day success. This three-part series provides information on diversity for the rehabilitation professional. In the first segment, discover strategies that will help you develop a mindset to facilitate a culturally-sensitive environment. The second segment explores how our implicit biases affect how we perceive, evaluate, and react to others. The third segment identifies systems of privilege and how they have created a wide division of inequality. This segment will help rehab professionals identify their privilege and determine how to make a difference in their places of employment. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA, and AT.
