Reflection on Cultural Humility with Regard to Families and Child-Rearing
This brief course is one of four in a series and provides content and activities addressing the systemic racial/cultural inequities in service delivery/systems, cultural competencies for service delivery, and the integration of reflection and new knowledge into practice for early intervention service providers in California. This course may be completed synchronously, during the first offering, or asynchronously from archived content. Upon completion of the series of courses, participants will be able to:
- Examine and recognize racial/cultural bias;
- Identify strategies to understand and address racial/cultural bias;
- Implement skills to build their own cultural competence; and
- Integrate culturally competent skills into interactions with families and colleagues.
Subject matter for this course is based on the work of John Dewey, William Sears, Alfie Kohn, and other influencers of modern American child-rearing practices. Participants will learn about and reflect on the influence of cultural considerations on child rearing and family engagement.
