Home Spokane Area Virtual: Mapping Multiracial & Cross Cultural Identities (Spokane, Apr 25)

Virtual: Mapping Multiracial & Cross Cultural Identities (Spokane, Apr 25)

STARS Credits: 2

‘“What are you?” “You don’t sound Mexican!” “Where are you from?” are micro aggressions that can affect the identity, sense of security, and threaten the development of multiracial and third culture youth.       

This training focuses on welcoming and creating spaces for professionals to practice their ‘attunement’ to different emerging identities and cultures within young people. We will be guiding participants through identity models including the multiracial cultural attunement model, working specifically around strategies to create spaces that affirm multicultural and multiracial identities.

*Although all participants are welcome, we highly recommend them to have attended the Cultural Responsiveness (Spokane, April 11) workshop first.*

Registrants will receive an email invitation and reminder to access the online training.

Virtual Training Details:

  • Zoom links and additional resources will be sent to all registered participants before each training.
  • Please note these will be interactive sessions, not informational webinars, so please come prepared to share and learn together!
  • A strong WiFi/internet connection will be necessary for the meetings, which will have video, audio, and web-based learning components.
  • Accessing the training over computer with access to web camera is highly recommended.
