Cultural Humility Primer: Peer Support Specialist and Recovery Coach Guide

Cultural Humility Primer: Peer Support Specialist & Recovery Coach Guide to Serving and Supporting Diverse Individuals and Their Recovery Journeys was developed by the Peer Cultural Cooperative for the Northwest ATTC.

This primer was created as an entry level cultural reference for Peer Support Specialists and Recovery Coaches working in both substance use disorder and mental health fields. Sections include:

  • Principles of cultural humility
  • Classification of disabilities and information about both visible and invisible disabilities
  • Cultural perspectives of Black and African Americans, Asian and Pacific Islanders, Native American and Indigenous people, Latinx and Hispanics, and LGBT folks, with each section featuring an exercise with a real-life scenario

An appendix features a wealth of additional resources, including glossaries of terms and acronyms, references, and tools.
