Case Management Training Institute

The Case Management Training Institute (CMTI), generously funded by the CT Department of Housing, was created to provide a comprehensive training program for individuals with case management responsibilities in AIDS services, AIDS housing, domestic violence, homeless shelters, and transitional living programs, regardless of how the positions are funded (i.e. DPH, HOPWA, DOH, and DMHAS).

Political Correctness Fatigue: Why Cultural Sensitivity Still Matters - REGISTER NOW

Presented by LaToya Tyson and Carter Lennon, ACT

Cultural differences are often highlighted by the media in a contentious way. In this training, we will focus on how to effectively work with clients who have different cultural backgrounds from you. We will define culture and cultural competency, and explore differences between and within cultures. HIV statistics in Connecticut will be discussed within a cultural context. This will be an extremely participatory training so come prepared to talk about cultural barriers you have encountered with your clients, cultural misunderstandings that have occurred, questions on how to effectively work with people of specific cultures, and how you think your culture affects how you interact with clients. We will explore culture broadly—race, gender, literacy, nationality, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, mental health, and more—to encompass aspects of culture not normally considered in these types of conversations.
