Lesson 6: Avoiding Cultural Bias
Cultural bias is a component of every healing relationship. As Mark Twain once said, “We’re all a product of our rearin’!” There are certain parts of our self over which we had no choice and that are a basic ingredient of who we are.
Being a product of our rearing includes more than just our genetic makeup. It also includes where we were born, and who our parents were. Other matters to consider are our ethnicity, our native language, our spirituality, and not only what we were taught but who were our teachers. These and many more items make up our personal and collective culture.
