Training Series Description:
This training discusses the impact of racial identity and social position on one's experiences of the child welfare system.It also invites participants to think about their practice through a culturally sensitive and relationship focused lens.In the training, we will discuss the critical role of reflection and self awareness when carrying out services with vulnerable populations.We will also discuss the roles of social workers as advocates and the importance of creating strong professional relationships on behalf of the families we serve.
This training supports the foundations of applying IMH principles when working with children and families involved with the child welfare system, and wasoffered in Detroit Wayne several years ago.
