In this presentation, The Diversity-Informed Tenets for Work with Infants, Children, and Families created by the Tenets Initiative through the Irving Harris Foundation will be reviewed and explored in detail. These tenets are “strategies and tolls for strengthening the commitment and capacity of professionals, organizations and systems that serve infants, children and families to embed diversity, inclusion and equity principles into their work.” Attendees will learn how the historical context of our field has reinforced discrimination and injustice at each of these levels and identify how these tenets overlap and enhance current clinical and professional ethics. Attendees will be asked to examine and reflect on their own practice from an individual, organizational, and systemic perspective, in order to identify practical steps they can take to improve individual and organizational practices Attendees will be more equipped to acknowledge privilege, combat discrimination and injustice, and advance policies that support children and families, as well as increase equity, diversity, and inclusion in their own practice.

Once individuals have heard from these two practitioners, you will be able to:

1) Discuss the basic concepts and goals / expected outcomes of diversity-informed practice; and,
2) Incorporate these practices into your own therapeutic milieu and discuss the ethical components which must be considered and applied.
