Using the True Flava
of Kijana (African American Youth):
Social Work Practice with Urban Oriented Youth
Presented by Dr. Richard Cooper
This workshop presents a discussion regarding the need for social work practitioners to explore and become informed about the complexities of Hip Hop cultural music when working with urban oriented youth. Urban oriented youth have worldviews that are often influenced by various aspects of popular and hybridized Hip Hop Cultures. Because cultural competency is a goal in all aspects of social work practice, social workers must become more knowledgeable about Hip Hop culture and rap music in particular, if they desire positive outcomes when working with this population. This workshop will help participants to deconstruct cultural aspects of Hip Hop and apply it to their helping relationships with Kijana and other urban oriented youth.
This event is free for all attendees; two CEUs will be available to interested parties for $25.
