The NASW Code of Ethics has been amended with the expectation that social workers engage in the continuous pursuit of knowledge to effectively engage diversity and difference in practice. All too often we as practitioners assume heterogeneity when working with others and unconsciously default to a position of ethnocentrism. Cultural competence is a vital but sometimes ignored element in the delivery of services to consumers of social work services. Further, our competence as practitioners depends on habits of the mind, including attentiveness, critical curiosity, self-awareness and presence. It is often easier to require practitioners to be competent than to define what competence means.
This training will promote ethical practice by facilitating practitioners to more readily and efficiently recognize, respect and engage diversity and difference in practice for the benefit of the consumer. Training attendees will become familiarized with the NASW Code of Ethics requirements for Cultural Awareness and Social Diversity. Attendees will have the opportunity to develop their diversity lens thru an interactive discussion and experiential learning activities that promote cultural literacy of the various factors of diversity and how they impact service delivery.
