About the Event
Nicole Klasey & Nola Brantley
Given the disproportionate number of youth of color in the foster care system, it’s imperative for social service providers to provide culturally relevant services. This 3-hour webinar will explore cultural perspectives on trauma, healing, and resiliency. With a greater cultural understanding of these concepts, providers will be able to increase their engagement with youth and families in more culturally meaningful ways.
- Participants will be able to discuss the importance of understanding through a cultural lens.
- Participants will be able to identify at least 2 ways culture impacts healing.
- Participants will be able to facilitate discussions with youth about culture.
