In order for professionals to be able to work effectively with clients of differing cultural, religious, ethnic, gender, and other backgrounds, they would benefit from training that explores the above challenges. This includes genuine self-reflection, critical thinking, and a re-evaluation of basic assumptions of service givers and receivers about concepts such as normative parenting, functional family, an enriching childhood, risk and protection of children, and the meaning of 'home' for families in transition. An awareness of complexity includes the ability to reflect on our blind spots, biases, stereotypes, and power relations and perceive hybridity and intersectionality. The group developed the following six modules of creative methods to facilitate active learning and discussion about these issues with immediate practical implications for the field. 

 

The modules have been developed as an outcome of the DEMO project.
This project has been funded with support from the European Commission. This publication solely reflects the views of the author and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.
