Social Justice and Cultural Responsiveness: Innovative Teaching Strategies for Group Work
Ibrahim, Farah A.
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v35 n3 p271-280 Sep 2010
This article presents a teaching strategy for group work that enhances the social justice consciousness of course participants by increasing their knowledge of their own cultural identity, worldview, acculturation, privilege, and oppression to improve their cultural responsiveness and understanding of social justice issues. The focus is on group teaching strategies designed to help counselors-in-training learn about culture (their own and others) so they can better understand cultural differences and social issues, and learn group process and practice, keeping culture and social justice issues in the forefront.
