Child Welfare League offers training on Black male experience

The Child Welfare League of America has partnered with Welcome2Reality, LLC to present the engaging four-part training series, Dear Black Male.

We invite you to join us for a training that will provide an overview of the history and culture of African Americans with a focus on recognizing cultural mistrust, issues faced, and perceptions of Black males. Through lecture and discussion, participants will identity how efforts to adequately provide for Black males can be linked to the fight for larger social justice goals for themselves and their communities. Participants in this training will:

- Develop an understanding of the importance of the role of the historian in interpreting African American history;
- Expand their knowledge and awareness of the disproportionality of Black males who are institutionalized and the impact it has on communities;
- Learn the most common mistakes professionals make when working with Black males and how to avoid them; and
- Engage in dialogue to identify strengths-based practices and interventions that foster family health and resilience.

The virtual training series will be offered Tuesday & Wednesday, January 23, 24, 30 & 31, 2024, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm Eastern Time
