Infusing Cultural and Linguistic Competence into Health Promotion Training -- Video
The National Center for Cultural Competence created a video titled Infusing Cultural and Linguistic Competence into Health Promotion Training. It is designed to help experienced health promotion trainers assure that their approaches with diverse populations address culture and language in an effective, appropriate and respectful manner. The video addresses:
- Rationale for cultural and linguistic competence
- Frameworks for achieving cultural and linguistic competence
- Values, principles and practices of culturally and linguistically competent health promotion training,
- How the Health Belief Model (Rosenstock, Strecher and Becker, 1994) can be used to infuse cultural and linguistic competence into training
- Principles and models for community engagement
- Issues in the content and logistics of trainings
Online video developed in collaboration with the National Sudden and Unexpected Infant/Child Death & Pregnancy Loss Resource Center
How to Use the Video in Training
This video can be used by individuals or groups to build knowledge and capacity to infuse principles and practices of cultural and linguistic competence into health promotion training. The approximately 90 minute video has been divided into chapters so that it can be watched in one viewing or used over several training sessions. The chapters allow viewers to stop at key points for discussion or small group exercises.
Web-based training materials are also available. The Power Point slides can be downloaded and printed as well. Individuals using the video can also benefit from using the group activities as opportunities to reflect on and enhance the training experience.
In Their Own Voices: Cultural Competence and Health Promotion
Excerpts from the video have been organized into a resource that introduces the speakers (Quicktime) and presents audio clips of their stories as they relate to five principles of culturally and linguistically competent health promotion.
