CEU Course Description

This CE course describes the adaptations and refinements undertaken by grantees to make their services more culturally responsive.  The adaptations include addressing issues of language, diversity, racism, and immigration, and incorporating cultural constructs like familismo, confianza, personalismo, and respeto.  Improvements to recruitment, retention, overall participation, and effectiveness of important interventions comes from making appropriate program adaptations by addressing backgrounds and life circumstances of people of different cultural, racial, ethnic, or socio-economic backgrounds as addressed throughout this course.

CEU Course Objectives

1.  Investigate the reason often cited for why poor, marginalized individuals do not seek services or end services prematurely.

2.  Compare and contrast engagement adaptations vs. effectiveness adaptations to Hispanic family-strengthening programs.

3.  Examine the methods that previous grantees have used to convey familismo, confianza, personalismo, and respeto to the clients that they serve.
