Privilege: The Challenge for White Social Workers and Counselors

ID: 4321WEB

It is a social worker’s role to become ‘woke’ to cultural differences and systems of racial oppression in order to have essential conversations with coworkers and clients. This webinar will provide a culturally competent understanding of the language, awareness and skills needed to have these interactions. This three-hour webinar will: 1) Define and explore culture, unconscious bias, microaggressions, racism, privilege, marginalization, color blindness and intersectionality. 2) Determine ways that cultural differences impact professional relationships and 3) Provide social workers with a culturally relevant toolbox of skills to work toward micro and macro level change.
