This workshop will increase participants’ awareness of, and sensitivity to, cultural differences.  It also will enhance the assessment skills that today’s social workers and human service providers need in order to more effectively serve diverse populations.  Activities will focus on helping participants become more aware of how personal values and diversity affect assessment, planning and service delivery, as well as point out the importance of seeking strengths in all cultures.

Learning Objectives:
Participants in this workshop will:

  • Develop key clinical and community-building skills to aid in their practice,
  • Understand cultural diversity and its impact on assessment, planning and service delivery,
  • Recognize strengths that exist in each culture, and

  • Increase cultural competence in service delivery.
