Social Service Agencies

Social Service agencies engage a wide host of individuals and organizations who all work together to better the lives of system-involved children and families.  With any agency, there are mental health practitioners, medical health providers, caregivers, parents, children, school counselors, social workers, county administration and so many others.  In continued, ongoing professional development, many partners are offering courses for continued education.  The following are all DEI-related topics that apply directly to the social service agency world, engaging participants in applying this important knowledge to their particular roles and work.

Working with Liberation Consulting has allowed us to examine the concept of cultural humility through a multi-dimensional lens to see that there is not a "one-size fits all" approach to fully grasping the concept of cultural humility. This has helped us learn how to incorporate teachings around cultural humility to all of our internal staff.
