Description

My Family, Your Family, Our Family: How Culture Impacts Families, Parenting and Education Our world is becoming increasingly diverse and understanding how culture impacts the family and how it shapes parenting and family interaction is key to the work we do as professionals. We will examine how our knowledge of cultural and religious practices can aid in building the relationship with the family of children in our care. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their own experience and how their culture may or may not intersect with the culture of the family and how that can inform teaching approaches that they take. About our Presenter: Professor Shelly-Ann Dewsbury, LICSW Shelly-Ann is the Director of Field Education for the BSW program at Simmons School of Social Work. She has many years of experience working in the field both locally and abroad, and was raised and educated in Jamaica and Trinidad, West Indies. She has worked with families from many different cultures in non-profits across the greater Boston area, including Horizons for Homeless Children.

This workshop includes material that is applicable to the needs of diverse learners and children with special needs.
