12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This presentation will focus on culturally responsive practice and the intersecting factors
that are relevant when considering culture: race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status,
age, and education. The presentation will also speak to the issue of “power dynamics” in
the provider-parent relationship, as well as in the greater community. Participants will
engage in thoughts around their own intersecting identities and how they impact and
challenge our values, beliefs, and assumptions in our work with children and families.
Participants will also be given specific strategies to use to help enhance their culturally
responsive practice in ways that support and empower families.
Presenter: Melissa Mendez, LCSW, IMH-E®, Director of Early Childhood Programs at Wheeler Clinic, CT
