Learn tools and techniques that, while grounded in traditional social work methods, have been modified to address issues specific to immigrants and their families. The workshop will provide assessment tools addressing: 1) categories of immigrants, 2) person-in-environment framework, 3) acculturation status, and 4) a framework for understanding implications of trauma.
Several models for intervention will be presented, with implications for these practice areas: mental health, physical health, youth education, family issues, employment, older adults, organizational practice and advocacy. Class size limited to 30.
Note: This workshop meets the Illinois licensure requirement for continuing education in cultural competence.
