Child Welfare Work with Asian Americans and New Immigrant Families: Improving Programs and Practices (Skills Seminar J)
Cultural competency entails implementing an awareness and/or acceptance of differences among people of various ethnic groups through policy, programs, and practice. This skills seminar provides information, tools, and resources to enable service providers, legal and other advocates, program planners, administrators, and policymakers to create and implement culturally competent child welfare programs in their work with Asian Americans and other new immigrant communities. Topics covered include identifying and working to address unique risk factors for child abuse and implementing culturally competent case and service plans.
