Description:

Research indicates that much of the curriculum intended to prepare social workers, psychologist, and varied behavioral health professionals is devoid of attention, or consideration to the impact of social determinants of behavior — such as racism, poverty, systematic oppression on the assessment and subsequent treatment of the people they intend to serve; thus this training aims to bridge that gap by allowing participants to foster a more holistic approach to their practice.
