Cultural Competence and Diversity Expansion!

To be most effective, we must recognize the importance of cultural diversity work in providing effective services to
all clients. This can be done with heightened awareness of barriers to providing culturally competent services
which leads to awareness of personal cultural lenses. Come brainstorm strategies to overcome barriers to
providing effective services to diverse populations and identify ways to become more culturally competent.

About the Presenter

Tonya Logan has nearly 30 years of professional clinical experience working with those managing conflict and trauma. A native Washingtonian, she received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Virginia and her master’s degree in social work from the University of Maryland at Baltimore. Tonya spent the bulk of her career, in D.C. and Maryland, working with biological and foster parents by securing permanency whether via reunification, adoption, or independent living. She was the clinical director of a program which provided in-home services to families at-risk of abuse and/or neglect in an attempt to strengthen and stabilize them so they would be diverted from the child welfare system. Tonya was a contractor with an organization in which she facilitated 10-week grief groups for those impacted by homicide following her certification as a grief recovery specialist. She transitioned to being the supervisory social worker in a non-public school for students diagnosed with emotional disturbance and/or autism. Tonya is the Founder & CEO of Kayla’s Village, begun in July 2007, which strives to be the premier provider of innovative seminars and supportive resources for individuals, families, professionals, and communities. She is a clinician providing counseling to individuals, couples, and families and on the Advisory Committee of the Center for Infant and Child Loss. Tonya is an active church member of Trinity AME Zion Church and the parent of two children, one by adoption and one by birth, and has hosted two exchange students. Obviously, she tries to tailor her life to help others in need. Mommie’s Bright Sunshine is Tonya's first book.
