Cultural Humility is an openness to learning from and with "the other," a receptivity, an awareness that cultural competence is an ongoing lifelong process rather than a goal to be achieved. (Reflections on cultural humility, APA Newsletter, August, 2013).
“We use the term [humility] to remind us to not be so arrogant or prideful or really think that we have to be all-knowing and all-knowledgeable…which of course we can’t be.” Melanie Tervalon, Berkeley Health Online, Fall 2012.
