Working with African American Clients
1. Share the cultural background and heritage of your group. Why is it important for human services providers to understand the cultural background and heritage of diverse populations?
2. What are some current challenges your chosen racial/ethnic group faces?
3. What are some effective strategies to use when working with these populations and what are some available services to provide resources? For example, if poverty affects a large portion of your racial/ethnic group what resources can a human services agency provide?
