Practice tips

  1. Educate yourself
    • It’s your burden, no one else’s
    • Look up on different readings to take up the initiative to learn about different people
  2. Listen
    • More than you talk
    • active-listening, reflective listening
    • Best way we can learn how we can help
    • Nuances of privilege
      • If you felt like you had adequate access to healthy food growing up
      • If you feel comfortable being emotionally expressive/ open
      • If your parents or guardians attended college
      • if you studied the culture or the history of your ancesotrs in elementary school
      • if one of your parents have never been laid off or unemployed against their choice
      • If you have enver taken our loans for your education
  3. Step back
  4. Self-reflect
    • Circle of accountability

    • & get comfy with the uncomfy
