Collaboration is highly valued in the service delivery field. It is highly important to collaborate with other professionals when providing services to family, but it is even more beneficial for families that we treat them as partners throughout this process and remain collaborative with them. Sometimes, in bilingual service delivery, families lose their voice and ability to advocate due to language barriers and bias, therefore, it is imperative that we work towards engaging in effective practices to maintain this partnership and empower the families we serve. In this workshop, participants will review effective case planning in bilingual service delivery. Participants will practice how to engage Spanish Speaking clients and families in their native language to increase the partnership with the family as the services are in a language they are most comfortable with, but also to provide services that culturally responsive.
