Child welfare workers are required to practice cultural competency when working with families, in order to appreciate how their values and traditions affects child welfare workers assisting families. Cultural competency does not take into account the personal experiences of the families in the child welfare system nor does it allow the child welfare worker to accept that he may not have all the resources needed due to a lack of cultural understanding. This curriculum will utilize the concept of cultural humility to bring awareness of how the personal experiences and cultural values of the families in the child welfare system can assist in assessment and establishment of positive relationships of Latino families. The curriculum will discuss the differences between cultural competency and cultural humility, Latino values and parenting practice, and will include case studies and role-playing scenarios to practice the concepts learned.
