This session focuses on the importance of culture in shaping values, beliefs, self-awareness, and value for others. Utilizing the principle of cultural humility, parents and professionals have an opportunity to foster mutual respect and positive cross-cultural relationships. We will discuss diversity as a rich resource that we all have access to, and explore ways to nurture healthy cultural identity in children. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
In ten years, the Quality Parenting Initiative (QPI) has expanded from three areas in one site to more than 70 sites in ten different states! We’re still growing and our conference will focus on bringing more voices to QPI. Celebrate ten years with us, embracing new partners, and new approaches that prioritize excellent parenting in Foster Care Systems!
