Seven Dancers Coalition / Amie Barnes:

Cultural Safety is an environment that is spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically safe for people, where there is no denial of identity, of who they are or what they need.

Key Concepts:

  • Cultural safety moves beyond the concept of cultural sensitivity to analyzing power imbalances, institutional discrimination, and colonization.
  • Cultural safety requires that service providers become respectful of nationality, culture, age, sex, political and religious belief. This notion is in no contrast to trans-cultural care, which encourages service providers to deliver services irrespective of these aspects.
  • Culturally safe care empowers people because it reinforces the idea that each person's knowledge and reality is valid and valuable.
  • Cultural safety is a political idea because it attempts to change attitudes about the power relationships between service provider and client.
