Webinar series

The Center for Human Development is offering a 4-part webinar series on cultural and linguistic competence for community organizations serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

 The objectives of the training are:

  1.  Multiple dimensions of culture within the context of developmental disabilities 
  2.  Definition of cultural competence: Implications for developmental disabilities
  3.  Linguistic competence: What it means for services and supports for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families
  4.  Getting to change: What does it take to advance and sustain cultural and linguistic competence. 

The webinar series is designed to help Alaskan organizations and leaders think about increasing the cultural and linguistic competence of their services to individuals with developmental disabilities and families.

It is intended that participants attend all 4 sessions in the series.  Sessions will be captioned and posted after completion in a secured site.  You must register for each session individually.  An email with a link specific to you will be sent upon registration completion.  

Session 1: Nov 14, 2019 10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon Alaska Time

Multiple Dimensions of Culture within the Context of Developmental Disabilities

Culture influences every aspect of life and defines who we are as humans. Culture is learned and shared knowledge about our way of life and included our values, norms, morals, beliefs, practices, customs, ceremonies, rituals, language and more. This webinar will take an in-depth look at culture, its multiple dimensions, and the essential role it plays in the system of services and supports for individuals with developmental and other disabilities and their families. 

You must register in advance:

Session 2: Dec 6, 2019 10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon Alaska Time 

Conceptual Framework and Definitions of Cultural Competence: Implications for Developmental Disabilities

Cultural competence is widely recognized as essential to the delivery of high quality and effective services and supports by policy makers, educators, researchers, and health and human service professional.  The Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-402) specifically states in its finding that:  

  •  “… there is a need to ensure that services, supports, and other assistance are provided in a culturally competent manner;  and 
  •  “Services, supports, and other assistance should be provided in a manner that demonstrates respect for individual dignity, personal preferences, and cultural differences.”  

There is a solid base of evidence that cultural competence improves access, utilization, outcomes, and satisfaction in human service delivery systems. While this evidence is compelling, many organizations continue to struggle to integrate cultural competence into policy and practice.  This webinar examines a conceptual framework for cultural competence and its implications for organizations and personnel that support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. 

 You must register in advance:

Session 3: Dec 12, 2019 10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon Alaska Time 

Linguistic Competence: What it Means for Services and Supports for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities and their Families 

The Georgetown University National Center for Cultural Competence offers a definition and conceptual framework for linguistic competence that extends beyond the provision of interpretation and translation services. This webinar will define linguistic competence, cite related legal mandates for the provision of services and supports to culturally and linguistically diverse populations, and describe standards for language access and implementation that affect services and supports for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

You must register in advance:

Session 4: When: Jan 10, 2020 10:00 AM Alaska 

Getting to Change: What Does it Take to Advance and Sustain Cultural and Linguistic Competence 

Change does not occur in organizations or systems simply because we want or need change to happen. Advancing and sustaining cultural and linguistic competence will require changes in the system of services and supports for individuals with developmental disabilities including the policies and practices of organizations and systems. This webinar will examine change theories that can assist with systems change efforts that advance and sustain cultural and linguistic competence.

You must register in advance:

Upon registering, your request will be reviewed.  Once accepted to participate in the training, you will receive a confirmation email containing information for joining each meeting with a training link unique to you.

The training is part of the Alaska Living Well in the Last Frontier grant from the Administration on Community Living and offered free of charge to participants approved to attend.
