Location: Online via Zoom
Children and adolescents living in foster care are a vulnerable population. Most have emotional, behavioral, developmental, and health problems that have their roots in the difficult family and environmental circumstances they came from before entering the foster care system. As providers, we must be culturally sensitive in our approaches with you. Explore the differences between Cultural Competence, Cultural Awareness, and Cultural Sensitivity. Review the importance of role modeling and good boundaries and how these impact our youth. Discuss self-disclosure and self-awareness in order to help workers be effective in their roles as providers.
