NYU Silver Hosts 25 Social Workers From Taiwan in Cross-Cultural Training Project

May 17, 2010

The NYU Silver School of Social Work is hosting a training program for 25 Taiwanese social workers from the nonprofit organization Taiwan Fund for Children and Families as part of the 2010 Sino-American Cross-Cultural Training Project. The program started on Sunday, May 16, and ends on Sunday, June 6.

 Under the direction of Dr. Yuhwa Eva Lu, the project provides training in child, youth, and family prevention and intervention through classes at the NYU School of Social Work, and visits to agencies in the New York metropolitan area. The curriculum focuses specifically on preventative services with children and families, high-risk youth and families, and mental health services.

 The Sino-American Cross-Cultural Training Program began in the 1991 at San Diego State University, initially focusing on child protection services, and then moved to University of California at Berkeley. Since 1998, the training has been held at the Silver School of Social Work. The goal of the project has been to foster professional development and a deeper understanding of services for children, youth, and families.

 A welcome reception will be held Monday, May 17 at the Silver School of Social Work.

 Media coverage of the reception and the cross-cultural training program at the NYU Silver School of Social Work is invited.
