This training describes ways to incorporate equitable practices throughout the process of working with youth. These practices are a constant series of choices toward equity at the individual, interpersonal, and institutional level. To be equitable in practices requires professionals to reflect on their own biases and to acknowledge how inequitable practices seep into work with youth. Moving toward equitable practices is crucial because of the harmful history of child welfare and services have impacted youth and families of color have been harmed by assessment processes and outcomes. This training will offer an historicized perspective on the detrimental effects of harmful practices in order to frame the need for intentional efforts toward equitable practices among professionals.
