Not Lost in Translation: How to Perform Competent Cross-Cultural Consultation

By Ruth Sterlin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2007

The author describes her experiences consulting for a preventive services agency aimed at helping the Latino community, on behalf of a Jewish child and family service agency, in order to illustrate issues involved in cross-cultural consultation. When the consultant acts authentically, the author contends, there develops an atmosphere of safety, a relationship parallel to the therapeutic relationship, and a cross-cultural transitional space.
