Salinas, CA
Culturally Inclusive Service Delivery for Victims of Color

Presented by Taquelia Washington, LCSW

In striving to provide culturally inclusive services, it is crucial that helping professionals be willing to examine the cultural lenses through which they view the world. While this is important no matter the race/ethnicity of the person being served, it is particularly important when working with people of color due to the nuances of cultural trauma that this population experiences on a daily basis. Utilizing a transformational learning lens, the goal of this workshop is to provide participants with an experiential and safe environment in which to develop the foundation needed to provide culturally inclusive services. This will be done through introducing participants to a model designed to visually expand the way that one views themselves, others, and the systems in which they work. Multiple modalities will be used to teach this workshop including lecture, experiential exercises, and small group work.
