Berkeley Center for Cultural Humility

Train The Trainer

Get Accredited: Expanding and Building Internal Capacity

As a supplement to our six core trainings for Cultural Humility, Anti-Racism, Trauma-Informed Care, Restorative Justice, Community-Based Participatory Research Training, and Citizen Science, we offer an extensive, hands-on ”Train The Trainer” (TTT) program to educate and propel individuals interested in becoming trainers, using CHUM’s evidence-based models and approaches. Our TTT program, centered around building and sustaining institutional capacity for professional development, consists of three didactic sessions spanning 10 hours, with a comprehensive shadowing cognate of roughly 20 hours that is meant to expose and orient trainers to the conduct of live in-person or virtual trainings. Focusing on motivational interviewing techniques, our TTT program prepares professionals from healthcare, education, social services, business, faith-based organizations, and beyond to deliver our trainings to audiences with varying levels of readiness.

Provided virtually or in-person, our TTT program covers the three dimensions of CHUM’s training paradigm: 1) content curation and tailoring, 2) interpersonal presentation and engagement, and 3) program monitoring and evaluation. Individuals who complete the TTT program are awarded a “Cultural Humility Trainer” accreditation from CHUM, and may be eligible for our advanced ”Recommended Trainer” designation. These trainers will also gain access to CHUM’s outreach and engagement protocols and evidence-based training guides, all of which they may use to curate their own trainings.
