Crisis intervention teams encounter people from diverse backgrounds, beliefs, values, and expectations. Understanding the worldview of those we serve is essential in providing helpful, appropriate care in the midst of crisis. Cultural sensitivity incorporates the benevolent, considerate connection with people that encourage the ability to learn about and get to know people who are different from you, thereby creating a feeling of wanting to respond and serve them better.
