As the student population in American schools becomes increasingly diverse, educators and student support staff must become culturally responsive. Our goal as educators is to create a supportive, safe and engaging environment for all students, regardless of their cultural background. The challenge becomes how to communicate with students and families from varied multicultural viewpoints and convey the importance of children’s emotional health and accessing mental healthcare services without crossing cultural boundaries. We will explore the varied cultural norms and discuss effective ways to communicate with students and families to ensure students receive the assistance they need. We will also focus on how educators can effectively meet the needs of students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender as well as their parent's needs.
The workshop will be presented by Nate Terrell, LCSW
