Do you want to increase your comfort and skills in addressing remarks, images or messages you consider offensive, inappropriate or racially insensitive that come from clients, consumers, family members or staff members?
Join the Providers' Council for our Interrupting Racism training on Friday, June 8th from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Randolph. Through interactive and thought-provoking exercises, case studies and role plays with other human service providers, we will explore some of the historical origins of racism in the U.S. and elsewhere as well as the lingering effects that still exist in our society today. By integrating this knowledge with our personal experiences, we can develop effective ways to respond to clients, their families and staff members when this behavior occurs.
You will leave with tools and information that will allow you to address racially-based behavior that may occur in your workplace. These skills will help to both enhance quality of service delivery to a multicultural client population and improve relations among diverse staff.
This session takes place from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, June 8th in Randolph.
In this session, you will:
Increase your understanding of the presence of racism in the diverse workplace and in society.
Increase your comfort level in responding to racially-based remarks by clients, consumers, their families and/or staff.
Identify and practice appropriate actions to reduce racist behavior from clients, consumers and/or staff.
