Providing Culturally Sensitive Guidance on Caregiving Practices to Newcomers

During resettlement, newcomer caregivers face numerous challenges adjusting to their new cultural context, which can significantly affect their caregiving practices for children and youth. Although some families receive a brief cultural orientation upon arriving in the United States, further education on U.S. child welfare policies, positive parenting strategies, and parental rights and responsibilities is essential to prevent misunderstandings. Providers working with newcomer caregivers must understand the inherent difficulties of parenting in a new culture and approach caregiving topics with sensitivity. This webinar will address cultural adaptation barriers that impact parenting decisions, offer strengths-based and trauma-informed strategies for educating newcomer parents on their caregiving rights and responsibilities, and provide positive parenting recommendations.
