Afrocentric Service Delivery: Family-Centered Practice through a Different Lens - Part 1 (Workshop 30)
The workshop uses a combination of demonstration, lecture, and experiential exercises to introduce the African Paradigm as a philosophy to guide services to African Americans. To further understanding of the application of the Afrocentric Paradigm, termed NTU, the workshop presents Progressive Life Center as an example. This multi-state and international human services agency offers mental health services, foster care, therapeutic foster care, juvenile justice services, maternal education services, and family preservation services from an Afrocentric perspective. The NTU model guides the practitioner on specific behaviors and approaches to help facilitate the movement of the client through each stage of therapeutic work.
