The goal of cultural sensitivity is to build trust between professionals and their clients, so that clients will disclose information and feel that they are part of the problem-solving process. Unless the social worker is an immigrant himself, he may not imagine what it is like to leave the homeland behind, survive the journey and process of migration, and then struggle to settle in.

Learning objectives

  • Overcome distrust and fear
  • Avoid cultural missteps
  • Elicit information, concerns, and ideas
  • Built plan of action with client


Linda Golley trains medical interpreters and medical interpreter trainers throughout the country. She is an experienced language access program manager as well as an ADA specialist. She is former vice-chair for the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters.
