Millions of Vietnamese have migrated to the United States, after having endured the traumas of war. To meet the mental health needs of populations, who encounter both socioemotional and cultural adjustment challenges, social workers have approached such individuals with a culturally relevant approach. This has been implemented through cultural matching of providers to consumers. Given that the social worker’s role is to be an ongoing learner of clients’ experiences, the proposed program aims to improve culturally matched services by underscoring that cultural nuances exist, despite providers fitting the same ethnic profile as consumers. The purpose of the project was to develop a cultural humility training for the Vietnamese Community of Orange County, a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive social services to the Vietnamese. The potential funding source for the project was identified as the California Wellness Foundation. Actual submission and funding were not required for the completion of this thesis.
