Abstract: Practitioners have identified a number of barriers that affect their willingness and ability to successfully engage with the African-American faith community. Most significant were issues of race and a personal lack of religious knowledge. This hesitance to engage with the Black Church can have devastating consequences for practice with African-American clients and communities. This workshop presents various strategies to support social work practitioners' engagement with the Africa-American faith community.
