Cultural competence encompasses more than acknowledging people of different races and ethnicities. It is an ongoing process that embodies acceptance and understanding of traditions, values, beliefs, and behaviors. A culturally sensitive therapist can effectively interact with diverse clients, as well as adapt interventions appropriately, to build a successful therapeutic relationship.
