A continuing education activity presented by the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Social Work in collaboration with Albemarle Department of Social Services. This program is designed for social workers and their community partners.
With the increasing diversity in our communities, social workers and other helping professionals are responding to situations that challenge us to engage with individuals whose world views may be very different from our own. How will we develop the extensive knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to intervene in ways that are appropriate and effective? Dr. Humberto Fabelo, Dr. Peter Nguyen, and Anita Nadal will draw upon their extensive experience as clinicians and educators to share strategies for working with Asian, Asian American, and Latino/Hispanic populations, as well as principles of cultural competence and communication that must guide our work with all culturally different individuals.
