About the Event
Nicole Klasey, Psy.D. and Maryann Adalat
Given the diversity that exists within the United States, it’s essential to understand one’s cultural heritage. Many times, one’s culture can be overlooked in social services, which creates barriers to engaging the system involved youth and their families. The training will provide an overview of cultural factors that are essential to incorporate in the support we provide to system involved youth and families. The training will also provide participants an overview of microaggressions so they are able to identify, prevent, and/or address discrimination which system involved youth and families they work with may experience.
1. Participants will learn examples of microaggressions.
2. Participants will explore at least one way they hold privilege.
3. Participants will explore the ways their privilege has been a barrier in their work.
4. Participants will learn how to describe cultural humility.
5. Participants will explore strategies for providing culturally relevant services.
