Presented by: Alexis Donkin, B.A. and Claire Fultz, LCSW-C
Social workers, behavioral health providers, and human service professionals interact with clients from diverse backgrounds. In a world where religious identities profoundly influence governments, social norms, and cultural practices, it is essential for professionals to enhance their specialized knowledge and understanding of historical context, customs, principles, family structures, religion, and spirituality of diverse cultural groups. Through interactive activities and discussions, this session is an opportunity to build a solid foundation for fostering interfaith relationships and understanding in client sessions, support groups, and social work practice.
In this training, participants will:
- Review the role of interfaith education in social work practice.
- Gain knowledge of key elements impacting interfaith dialogue and understanding.
- Experience in practicing active understanding for different religious identities.
- Gain strategies for bringing these practices to clients.
