NYS SOC Provider Wellness Training: Cultural Responsiveness and Self-Awareness – Video 3

This video emphasizes the importance of cultural responsiveness and self-awareness in creating an organizational climate and culture that is conducive to staff wellness. Self-awareness is essential to the work that we do because it helps us attune to our individual risk and protective factors and is essential to work towards cultural responsiveness.

This video is one of a series of four videos.

This series on Provider Wellness is designed to assist human services agencies to proactively address staff health and wellness. Each of the videos in this series will provide information on aspects of employee wellness and resilience. This reflection guide will provide questions and activities for viewers, including individual staff and organizational leadership, to dig deeper and spend time planning to integrate these practices into their work. The content in the series is adapted from the New York State Trauma-Informed Network and Resource Center’s Trauma-Responsive and Resilience-Informed Care (Tending the Roots – though it is referenced with the old name in the videos and content) training curriculum, which provides foundational knowledge on the effects of toxic stress, trauma, and adversity on health and well-being.

This video training series was developed by Coordinated Care Services, Inc. (CCSI) in partnership with New York State Office of Mental Health and funded by Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene, Inc. via Cooperative Agreement H79SM082962-03, to enhance training offerings available statewide.
