The Color Line workshop reimagines social work practice through an anti-racist framework when working with Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). By taking a culturally conscious, family-centered, and community-based approach, individuals that attend this training will enhance their capacity to meet families where they are — implementing valuable techniques and strategies when engaging clients.
This workshop specifically focuses on 3 Core Competencies, examines unconscious and hidden bias, the importance of storytelling, and practical skills to appropriately identify and apply culturally responsive strategies, techniques, and real-life tools to implement into partnering with families at the individual and community level. This workshop will be held on Zoom.
