The purpose of this training is to challenge participants to learn from the people with whom they work, reserve judgment and bridge the cultural divide among perspectives in order to better facilitate child safety and well-being and promote permanency.
Using case examples involving adults and children who have experienced child welfare intervention, this training assists child welfare caseworkers in becoming aware of their perspectives, the client perspectives and how to enter the client's cultural world.
After attending this training, participants will be able to:
- Differentiate between cultural competence and cultural humility
- Recognize and implement cultural inclusion that incorporates the "intersectionality" of identities
- Frame cultural humility in the context of child welfare intervention
- Explore ways to recognize, facilitate and address cultural barriers
Successful participants will improve their engagement and assessment skills and apply this to a more collaborative working relationship with clients.
