System involved African American youth who live in out of home care not only bear the burden of their difficult familial circumstances, but they also experience the weight of being subjected to cultural biases that existed long before they entered this world. In this interactive training, participants will examine, discuss, and challenge issues related to cultural differences; consider the difference between being culturally sensitive and culturally responsive; learn techniques, strategies and tools that will support them as they continue to actively challenge previously unknown micro-aggressive attitudes/behaviors; and explore ways to abandon thoughts and actions that interfere with endeavors to provide support to foster care and juvenile justice involved youth that improves their outcomes.
