Lecture 8: Implementing Culturally Responsive Practice with African American Families

Presenter: Samantha Francois, PhD

African American families have formed and functioned under the strain of systemic anti-Black racism since legal enslavement in the U.S. Nevertheless, African American families are structured and operate not only to survive racists systems and contexts but also to thrive through cultural traditions, values, and practices emerging from African traditions and African American innovation. This lecture will present theoretical frameworks and empirical evidence to describe how African American families are structured and function highlighting the strengths and diversity among African American family systems. This session will also present an overview of culturally responsive practice and apply it to working with African American families.

Participants will have the option to purchase to watch the lecture live or view them later on the APSAC LMS.
