Community Psychiatry’s Leela Magavi, M.D. was featured in Well and Good discussing the topic of Cultural Humanity.

What is cultural humility and how is it practiced?

“Cultural humility consists of three essential components, which [are]: prioritizing life-long learning and self-evaluation, the minimization of power imbalance, and the importance of partnerships and advocacy,” says Leela R. Magavi, MD, a psychiatrist with California-based teletherapy service Community Psychiatry. “Patients open up to me about their fears and provide me with feedback about our discussions, and this helps me become a better individual and physician.”

Dr. Magavi also makes sure to ask patients for feedback on their sessions, showing that she values their input and is open to criticism, or ask them how they want a session to go and follow their lead. “My patients teach me things every day, and this is the beauty of cultural humility; life-long learning helps us become better physicians and human beings,” she says.
