    This training is for parents and caregivers of people developmental and intellectual disabilities.

    Sexuality is a basic part of being human, and sexual development begins when we are born and continues throughout our lives.  Many family members and caregivers struggle with discussing the topic of relationships, intimacy, sexuality and safety and also with how to present the information in a way that the person with developmental disability will understand. Thus, it is necessary to empower caregivers so they can empower the people they care about. 

    People with a developmental disabilities deserve to learn about their physical, emotional, and social growth as it relates to their sexual development.  They should have freedom to ask questions and be supported to learn in an environment that is non-judgmental, free of fear, shame, and exploitation. This will be an open and honest discussion about sexuality and supporting your family member or the person you support to feel safe.

    "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.


    Learning Objectives:

    • Define Mosaic Dimension Model 2.0, Diversity, Disparity & Disproportionality
    • Interact with Child Welfare Case Flow Chart and identify their roles, touch points and impact on the system
    • Define primary, secondary & Mosaic Dimensions of diversity and the impact on foster care clients
    • Evaluate & discuss state and parish-wide disproportionality and disparity data and strategies to improve outcomes
    • Review implications of disproportionality data and ways practitioners can influence and possible change results
    • Discover applications for Mosaic Dimension Model and implications through a Practicum experience
    Registration is $25 and will cover lunch, refreshments and training materials. 6.0 CEU and CLE hours are approved including 1 hour of professionalism. Credit will only be issued for time attended. 

    Pre-registration is required in order to plan for lunches/seating.
