NCFR Webinar: Practical Skills for Family Life Educators to Invoke, Evoke, and Provoke Cultural Engagement
In this NCFR webinar presented by Certified Family Life Educator Marcy L. Peake, you'll build awareness of your cultural self and take away activities to help you provoke cultural engagement with the families you serve.
Family life educators work in a variety of environments that require knowledge, skills, and dispositions to engage diverse populations and create learning spaces that are anti-oppressive for all families. Since families are unique both within and between cultural groups, family life educators can best prepare by learning practical skills that invoke an understanding of their own cultural selves, evoke awareness of societal and individual biases, and provoke cultural engagement with families served.
The activities in this webinar will provide skill-building for family life educators, and will lend themselves to replicable activities that family life educators can use with families.
Intended Audience: Family life educators who are interested in learning about moving from cultural encapsulation to cultural engagement.
