Cultural Humility and Safety Organized Practice

Safety Organized Practice includes child welfare social work approaches and tools that build a strong working relationship; engage youth and families in collaborative assessment, critical thinking, and decision-making, with the goals of enhanced safety, permanency and wellbeing.

This session will inspire practitioners of Safety Organized Practice to deepen our understanding of how SOP supports our culturally-humble work with youth and families, identify SOP approaches that can reduce the impact of institutional bias, and explore SOP approaches that support county staff and sovereign nations to collaborate when we have a shared family. You’ll leave with concrete ideas and next steps for practicing SOP in ways that are culturally-relevant and address institutional equity.

  • Participants will identify at least three Safety Organized Practice elements which can reduce the impact of institutional bias.
