June 2009Vol. 10, No. 5Evidence-Based Practice and Cultural Competence

In response to a series of talks, panels, and group discussions held in June 2007 at the University of Minnesota (UM) School of Social Work, the university developed an online workshop to address issues related to cultural competence, child welfare, and evidence-based practice.

The workshop was created to assist child welfare caseworkers, supervisors, administrators, and students who are interested in improving and achieving culturally competent evidence-based practice. It consists of six self-guided modules, each of which includes reading material, resources, and interactive learning. Audio recordings from the June 2007 meeting provide additional information from child welfare experts and practitioners.

This workshop is available on the UM School of Social Work website:
