Many social work practice concepts and “norms” are based on WEIRD (Western, educated, industrialized, rich, democratic) societies where the dominant cultural and economic groups are studied and other groups’ experiences are marginalized. There is a much greater breadth and variation of world experience available to learn from. This workshop will share lessons from three additional groupings:  working class and working poor, marginalized cultures within the US, and traditional cultures in other parts of the world. We’ll compare the strengths of various perspectives on financial, legal, and family systems.
