About the Workshop:

“What Social Workers in Ohio Can Learn from Latin American Social Work”

Description: The rich history and diverse contexts of social work practice in Latin America has uniquely shaped the development of the profession, particularly through the creation of alternatives to North American models of social work. From the re-conceptualization of social work in the 1960s which aligned social work with broader social movements and anti-oppressive practices to more recent developments in the profession, Latin American social work provides insight into new possibilities for social work as a discipline and profession here in Ohio and globally. This workshop will explore the history of Latin American social work, present perspectives and practices of social workers in different Latin American contexts today, and provide space for participants to discuss what we can learn from these perspectives and apply to social work practice in Ohio.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn about the history and context of Latin American social work
2. Hear perspectives of Latin American social workers and examples of Latin American social work practice today
3. Discuss what social workers in Ohio can learn from Latin American social work perspectives
4. Consider specific applications for social work practice in Ohio
