Event Details

The Mosaic Dimension is based on the assumption that children who are moving through the foster care system are as culturally unique and different as mosaic patterns.  This curriculum was developed to address the systemic issue of disproportionate minority representation in child welfare and the court systems.  Patsy Wilkerson will take you through an experiential, scenario-based training,  designed to go beyond traditional programs to explore this topic on a broader level. 

In most cultural competence and diversity training programs, we generally focus on primary and secondary dimensions.  The primary dimensions (race, ethnicity) are basic and cannot be changed by the person. Secondary dimensions (education, geography) can be influenced or changed more easily. These patterns are sometimes invisible or undiscovered and may require us to look beneath the surface and question our previous beliefs and assumptions. 

This training has been developed as a partnership between the LA Supreme Court and the DCFS-CJA Task Force and is open to DCFS, Judges, court staff and administrators, attorneys and CASA staff and advocates in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes. CLEs and CEUs will be applied for.

Registration is $25, which covers training materials and refreshments and lunch.
