Culturally-responsive Practice in African American Communities: Prevention and Intervention Strategies with Racial Microaggressions »
May 12, 2016 - 9:00am to 5:00pm
Distrust based on a history of unsatisfactory experiences with human service professionals and low retention in, and premature termination of services can reduce successful outcomes for members of African American communities. Participants in this course will examine racial microaggressions in practice as a source of these outcomes. Participants will define and identify racial microaggressions and their impact on clients and on the professional relationship. Attention will be given to the cultural context in the way racial microaggressions are experienced and dilemmas about how to respond. The effect of power differentials on the interpretation of racial microaggressions will be examined. Using an African-centered perspective, the course will be knowledge-, skills-, and values-based and will include assigned readings, power point presentations, video-clips, case studies, and small-group problem-solving. Participants will practice alternative methods of intervening when in the presence of racial microaggressions.
