Lecture 5: Racism Amid Child Welfare Oversight: The Impact on Black Children and Families
Presenter: Marva L. Lewis, PhD
New relationship-based tools are needed to engagement, assessment and intervention with families of color in the child welfare system. In many communities there is often a racial divide between predominately white administrators and providers and the predominately Black and Brown children and families they serve. (Ghosh-Ippen & Lewis, 2011). This webinar presents anti-racist tools based on a trauma-informed model that assesses: 1) the perception of of the quality of the working relationships from both sides of multicultural divides; 2) recognize cultural risks and vulnerabilities, and 3) build on cultural strengths and resilience through a partnership approach to child welfare services.
