Columbia University is hosting a workshop to better social work practice with immigrant families. The event will be led by Dr. Christiana Best, Ph.D., LMSW, who is an assistant professor at the Department of Social Work at the University of Saint Joseph in Connecticut.
This full day interactive workshop integrates lecture, discussion, case studies and small and large group activities. It frames current immigrant experiences from an ecological perspective and includes: pre-migration, migration and resettlement experiences; theoretical frameworks; immigration policies and statuses; demographics and issues specific to present day immigrant families; deconstruction of the negative stereotypes, racism, religious prejudices and fears that feed a nativist movement and inform policy, and social work best practices for working effectively with immigrants and their families.
