Identifying Anti-Racist Behaviors in Child Welfare Practices
3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The Wayne State University School of Social Work Office of Continuing Education invites child welfare workers, family preservation workers, foster care workers and adoption services to attend one of our specialized child welfare trainings. We are excited to host WSU Social Work Assistant Professor Megan Hicks, MS, PhD for this training titled "Identifying Anti-Racist Behaviors in Child Welfare Practices ".
Identifying anti-racism in child welfare practice is crucial. It strives to eliminate discrimination and racism while breaking down systemic barriers that cause inequality and harm to marginalized communities. When implemented in child welfare practice, anti-racism promotes fairness, cultural understanding, the ability to challenge biases and stereotypes, empowerment and self-determination, and trauma-informed care. This training will help child welfare workers gain a deeper understanding of how to incorporate anti-racism into child welfare practice and apply these principles in everyday life.
CONTINUING EDUCATION: Attendees can obtain 1 social work CECH upon completion of the training, payment receipt and passing of the post-training quiz. A CECH certificate will be emailed within 7 - 10 business days after the event.
COST: Free to all MDHHS and private agency child welfare workers; $5 students; $10 all others
All attendees must RSVP for this training. Attendees will receive the Zoom link via email upon completion of the RSVP.
