50. Diversity Made Simple: Multicultural Awareness Training for Helping Relationships
Friday March 03, 2023 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM - Hershey Lodge and Convention Center
Unintentional cultural offenses and misunderstandings often contribute to disconnected personal and professional relationships. Unfortunately, professionals that help often feel paralyzed by the fear that we don’t know enough about other cultures to try to effectively support those different from themselves. This training will help reduce those fears by providing an attainable goal for increasing cultural competence, as well as reducing the negative impact of unavoidable cultural misunderstandings on professional rapport and effectiveness. This positive and encouraging, relationship-focused training will provide practical language and strategies that can help reduce tensions and perceived barriers and help strengthen cross-cultural relationships.
General education and special education administrators and teachers, paraprofessionals, school psychologists, professional development staff, and families of students with disabilities are encouraged to attend.
Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individuals who have special needs as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act and who need assistance at this event. Contact: Debra Jordan at (610) 878-7224 or email@example.com
