The pandemic impacts marginalized populations far more negatively than dominant groups in multiple ways. As the fastest-growing racial or ethnic group in the United States for the past two decades, promoting and retaining bicultural and bilingual Asian social workers for the AAPI needs to be prioritized by advancing the current culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS). By visiting how CLAS is utilized in the field, this course will help course participants understand the working conditions of these workers through a recent qualitative study on them. After learning about the Asian critical race theory (Asian CRT), participants see the value of the theoretical application of this theory for both Asian workers and the AAPI populations. In the end, we will discuss what organizational support and policies can be created to help bicultural and bilingual Asian social workers in the future.
After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the demographic shifts and the need for culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS)
- Understand culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS) and how it is practiced in the field for the AAPI communities
- Understand bicultural and bilingual Asian human service workers and their working conditions during and beyond the pandemic
- Apply Asian critical race theory (Asian CRT) to the AAPI communities
- Create culturally and linguistically allied policies to promote and retain bicultural and bilingual Asian social workers in the future
