Cultural Knowledge, Intercultural Communication and Self Awareness

I have posted several blogs about ideas involving intercultural communication, cultural knowlege and self awareness.    At the risk of engaging in shameless self-promotion, I would like to announce that my article on these issues just came out as part of the Wash U. Symposium on “Emerging Directions in Clinical Legal Education” ( I know many call these ideas “cultural competence”, but if you read my article you will know why I eschew that terminology…)

In the article I try to use Best Practices suggestions about developing learning objectives to develop specific and clear learning objectives in the area of intercultural communication, self awareness and cultural knowledge as part of supervision in a client -service clinic.  (If you read the article you will also learn why I use the phrase “client service” rather than “live-client” to describe in-house clinics that serve clients….(smile)

Here is a link to the article:

And, just email me at, if you would like for me to send an off-print to you.

I would love to hear feedback on the piece!  Thanks!
