Culture: Challenges and success living in a mainstream world 

 

Individuals from visible minorities may encounter negative societal stereotypes that limit their educational and career opportunities.

At Insight & Growth, we seek to challenge negative stereotypes and maximize the educational and career opportunities of all our clients by:

  • Identifying and affirming your unique strengths and abilities

  • Listening to and understanding how racial and cultural perceptions influence educational and career opportunities and advancement  

  • Providing practical strategies and role-playing opportunities to build skills in inter-cultural communication and positive self-advocacy 

  • Incorporating culturally-sensitive perspectives into our psycho-educational assessments of children and adolescents and professional communication with teachers and schools
