New Lecture in the APSAC Certificate Program & Lecture Series | April 8, 2021
Join us on April 8 from 4:00 to 5:30 PM ET for the next lecture in the APSAC Systemic Racism in Child Welfare Certificate Program.
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.
