Cultural Sensitivity is becoming a significant variable in the treatment and rehabilitation of traumatized children. Cross-cultural psychology aims to improve our understanding of the diversity of human activity, and tries to understand the impact of culture on human behavior ~ Excerpt from Roberto's chapter in Responses to Traumatized Children textbook addition Metropolitan University of London
"Psychologist Roberto Dansie suggested that we don’t need an abundance of programs-we have enough.
However we do need strong philosophies and must develop and empower people rather than build more programs. He provided a paradigm to understand the dynamics between culture, health and education and to build rapport across diverse cultural practices."
Cultural competency and the application of cultural sensitivity throughout the health care system, relevant as it is in all areas of health, becomes even more significant when it concerns traditional healing practices that impact the immune system.
