We focus on diversity issues. Cultural humility entails recognizing the complexities of identities and acknowledging that even in similarity, there is diversity. Cultural humility is a dynamic process that continues to develop over time and encourages clinicians to be mindful of the evolving and multifaceted nature of a patient’s experiences (Khan, 2021). Following are some of the resources to reiterate issues related to cultural diversity and humility in clinical practice and neuropsychology.
