      • CALPACT Training: Inua Ubuntu


        from CPHP at UC Berkeley Added 13 0 0

        This workshop will examine an innovative project, Inua Ubuntu ("To lift up; I am, because we are") aimed at reducing disproportionality rates for African American male children served in Allegheny County's (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) Department of Human Services, Office of Children, Youth and Families - ACCYF). The goal of Inua Ubuntu is to provide culturally-based intervention and child protective services aimed at keeping African American male children safely in their own homes with their families and to reduce the rate of African American males requiring out of home placement. Inua Ubuntu proposed that linking these children to robust culturally- centered community services, rather than making them child welfare cases, can improve outcomes and reduce the number of youths removed from their homes. First year results support that claim. Ninety percent of all children served remained in their own homes requiring no further child protective services involvement. Furthermore, appreciable gains were made in child safety, permanency, well-being and self efficacy.

                from CPHP at UC Berkeley Added 17 0 0

                The oldest social institution in the African American community, the black church has served as a protective factor against debilitating social and psychological forces of poverty, inequality, disparity and racism. We will examine historical roots of African American spirituality, the current role of the black church and clinical intervention methods necessary to provide effective, culturally-based treatment and services. Participants will be introduced to a useful clinical tool, "Spiritual Life Mapping" and how it improves engagement strategies and moves families toward wellness, self-sufficiency and empowerment.

                    from CPHP at UC Berkeley Added 7 0 0

                    "Well-meaning", experienced and novice practitioners are often unaware of their own biases and cultural incompetence that impede culturally-based intervention strategies such as Family Group Decision Making (FGDM). Such impediments serve to feed ethnic minorities involvement into child welfare systems and do little to repair disproportionality. Although FGDM is inherently a culturally competent practice, intervention strategies related to specific cultures are necessary for true cultural competence. This workshop will provide further evidence of the merits of FGDM. As well, through theory and empirically-evidence practice, participants will leave the session with practical strategies to introduce FGDM to new arenas and improve existing practices. A wide range of cultures and various populations will be examined from a theoretical and clinical perspective. This is a strength-based approach to reaching cultural competency rather than a "guilt-ridden" exercise. This workshop will present theory, step-by-step implementation strategies; practice methods and corresponding data outcomes, all of which are needed to enhance practitioner skills, increase FGDM outcomes and reduce the rate of ethnic minority disproportionality in child welfare.
