Powerpoint accompanying workshop session from the Homeless and Housing Coalition of Kentucky's 2013 conference. Presented by Isela Arras, Kentucky Domestic Violence Association
Social Service providers are charged with the ethical responsibility to be culturally competent. This workshop
applies the three presumptions about the dominant culture – innocence, worthiness, and competence – to the
roles of social service providers in a practical manner, allowing participants to have clear examples illustrating the
importance of cultural competent practice, social service provision, interactions and policies. This workshop is
hands-on and participant-driven, creating a framework for participants to utilize these presumptions when striving
for culturally competent practice.
