In order to effectively work with youth of diverse backgrounds, adults must be sensitive to cultural issues. This training is designed to assist adults to provide effective services to youth from a variety of racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. It will challenge commonly held beliefs about diverse groups of people, and identify how prior experiences and assumptions can lead to misunderstandings. The impact of cultural competence on good casework practice will also be examined, as well as exploring the ways in which culture impacts foster care placement.
