About the event
Immigrant and refugee families moving to Charlotte often have many challenges to overcome when they arrive—learning a new language, understanding new social systems, navigating a new culture. Charlotte has an amazing network of service providers ready to help families in need, but service providers may also run into challenges providing culturally responsive programming to international clients. Our 4-hour professional development workshop is designed to give participants the skills and resources they need to effectively communicate with international families and non-English speakers.
The training covers cultural sensitivity and recognizing cultural bias, the language-learning brain, best practices for utilizing interpreters and translation tools, and a review of local case studies and national examples. This workshop is designed for healthcare professionals, social workers, and other community members that work with immigrant, refugee, and international clientele. The cost is $45 per person and covers your training materials, refreshments, and Certificate of Completion.
