Effective Communication with African American Clients

From 9:30 am until 11:30 am

At North Regional Library


Purpose: The African American Babies Coalition is a group of African American community leaders committed to supporting the healthy development of babies by translating what we know from early childhood development research and brain science into culturally relevant information that can be used in African American family and community life. We are looking for service providers (case managers, social workers, family specialists, health care providers, early childhood education or childcare pro-viders, etc.) who are working with African American clientele to join us in one or all of our three 2-hour workshops in order to gain knowledge, skills, and practices about how to work with African Americans in a culturally-appropriate manner. Our train-ers will explore topics such as trauma, toxic stress, and factors that impact the African American community and health out-comes.

This is the third and final workshop of the series and will address how to effectively engage with African American clientele as a service provider. We will use a variety of adult learning frameworks to improve relationship-building.
