Australia, has a proud reputation for being a truly multicultural society and we strive to ensure that young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds have every opportunity to succeed in Australia. Despite this, many young people feel a cultural ‘tub-of-war’ between their family/cultural background and the expectations and ‘norms’ of Australia life, often becoming evident in the school setting.

This NESA endorsed workshop will provide you with increased knowledge, tools and strategies for responding to situations when students have problems adjusting, navigating their various roles at school and home, or where they may have experienced trauma, all of which may cause relationship and behavioural issues at school.

 

The workshop will cover:

  • Examine how an individual’s socio-cultural profile can affect their access to services and equitable treatment in society;
  •  Increase your knowledge and understanding of the migration system;
  • Develop a more culturally sensitive approach to the school environment where all students feel like they belong and can participate fully,
  • Increase your awareness of when it is beneficial to refer students to additional support services, and
  •  Develop tools and strategies to overcome challenges that young people may experience.
