Web of Chemical Dependency

  • About the Workshop:
  • It is estimated that in the United States there are over 1,000,000 drinkers.  One tenth of those who drink will become alcoholic.  With each of these people’s drinking effecting at least four other people, it becomes clear that the children we work with have probably been exposed to the effects of drinking.  These very children are who we are referring to when we say “high risk youth”.  Many will use alcohol and other drugs themselves, drop out of school, be involved in delinquent behavior or become victims of abuse.

  • Genograms Brochure
  • About the Workshop:
  • When reading a family history or a case presentation, it is often difficult to tell who is who in a family.  Family structures are complex and descriptions of families often don't give a clear picture of family dynamics.  A Genogram can help a clinician discover the major people in a client's life.
  • This simple tool can be utilized to help build relationships with clients while eliciting information that is vital to understanding the client's situation.  The visual nature of the Genogram helps both the clinician and the family see patterns of behavior and dysfunction very easily.

Cultural and Linguistic Brochure

About the Workshop:

This workshop will present the history and core concepts of Cultural and Linguistic Competency (CLC) and give examples of how CLC can be improved at the individual, program and agency levels in order to better serve the children, youth and families we serve in our work.

Cultural and linguistic competence (CLC) is one of the core values of any system of care. Cultural Competence is defined as "the integration of knowledge, information, and data about individuals and groups of people into clinical standards, skills, service approaches and supports, policies, measures, and benchmarks that align with the individual's or group's culture and increases the quality, appropriateness, and acceptability of services, care and outcomes” (Cross et al., 1989).

Linguistic competence is "the capacity of an organization and its personnel to communicate effectively, and convey information in a manner that is easily understood by diverse audiences including persons of limited English proficiency, those who have low literacy skills or are not literate, and individuals with disabilities” (Goode & Jones, 2004).
