This course is intended for all licensed human service professionals. Teaching human service professionals about culturally relevant practices with vulnerable groups has followed an intergenerational path. While the content in the early 1960s has always included topics such as practicing with those in poverty and with women, later content on vulnerable groups continued to be added depending on the knowledge production of that generation. An example is a practice with issues related to disabilities. The generation in which you were educated determined the model(s) you were taught and informed your practice with multicultural issues and groups. This workshop presents models taught with their accompanying values, knowledge, and skills, the implication for supervision, and case applications. It will begin with the obsolete assimilation model and conclude with the current-day critical theory models.
After completing this course, you will comprehend and be able to:
- Explain the generational views of social justice practice models and their influences on practice and supervision
- Discuss each model and its practice tenets
- Apply each model to supervision
