"Embracing 'Cultural Uniqueness and Differences' to make a Difference"
This training introduces participants to concepts of cultural programming and implicit racial bias through the Mosaic Dimension Model. It helps to foster a climate of success & reduce disproportionality and disparity through three extraordinary practices. The Mosaic Dimension assumes that children who are moving through the Foster Care system are as culturally unique and different as mosaic patterns.
The Mosaic Dimension Model teaches that through “the Power of One,” we can each work to create a child welfare system where all children “fare well.” This experiential, scenario-based training is designed to go beyond traditional programs to explore this topic on a broader level. It includes a data-driven practicum designed to encourage and strengthen transfer of knowledge and competencies to actual work experience. Presented by Patsy Wilkerson, M.A.
