Halloween "The Idea is to be the scariest thing you can think of"

The other day I was reading fivethirtyeight's "Significant Digits" column and one of the stories it summarized was about the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and "Teflon Toxin." See, "112 new PFAS componds." This reminded me of one of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes Halloween comic strips - click here.

In her Journal of Community Practice article, Notes from the Field: Learning Cultural Humility Through Critical Incidents and Central Challenges in Community-Based Participatory Research, Prof. Laurie Ross states, "Experiential forms of teaching and learning, including service learning and community-based research, can potentially be transformative for both students and communities."  Prof. Ross states that cultural humility has three foci: knowledge, attitudes, and skills. Using Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) as a framework, community development professionals have identified Cultural Humility as a subset of competence that challenges the practitioners' beliefs and attitudes about people who are different.  Cultural humility results from developing forms of knowledge about:

1.  Health Disparities:  awareness of the scope the ways in which health disparities are the result of social, political and economic dynamics that have resulted in beliefs and behaviors within communities;

2.  Attitudes and Behaviors:  Practitioners' need to be aware of their own subconscious and conscious bias and stereotyping;

3.  Culturally Humble Skills:  These include nonauthoritarian communication, cross-cultural communication fluidity and the ability to engage in participatory decision-making with community partners.
