From the mid- to late 1990s, hundreds of thousands of refugees from the Balkans came to the United States. While numbers are hard to come by, St. Louis is believed to be home to the largest population of Bosnians outside of the country of Bosnia-Herzegovina. The following topics will be covered in this 3-hour workshop:

*Considerations in working with Bosnian colleagues
*Promising practices in providing social work services to Bosnians clients
*Description of the diverse cultures among the St. Louis Bosnian population
*Overview of the political context for the Bosnian Diaspora

Class size is limited to 50.
