Mosaic Dimension 2.0

This training introduces participants to concepts of cultural diversity through the Mosaic Dimension Model.  It helps to foster a climate of success to positively impact disproportionality & disparity for all children through seven extraordinary practices. The Mosaic Dimension is based on the assumption that children who are moving through the Foster Care system are as culturally unique and different as mosaic patterns.  The Mosaic Dimension can be defined as a montage of people who bring a variety of invisible, undiscovered, backgrounds, styles, perspectives, values, patterns and beliefs as assets to relationships, communities,  situations and environments.  This experiential, scenario-based training is designed to go beyond traditional programs to explore this topic on a broader level.  It includes a data-driven practicum designed to encourage and strengthen transfer of knowledge and competencies to actual work experience.
