PRIDE Core: Module 7: Promoting Children's Personal and Cultural Identity (6 hours)

In Module 7, participants acquire information about the effect of culture and the meaning of cultural competence. They also gain information on the steps they can take to learn about the cultural norms of children in their care, including the use of lifebooks. They engage in activities designed to increase their ability to use the community to support children's cultural identity, to incorporate the child's culture and traditions into daily life, to manage diverse traditions in the family, and to help ensure positive special occasions within the foster family.
