Cultural Competency for working effectively with Aboriginal Families and Aboriginal Colleagues
Are you ‘Culturally Competent’ to work with Aboriginal families and colleagues?
This one-day face-to-face workshop will help you navigate the levels of cultural competency. It has been designed to equip you with strategies and strengthen your practice skills to build effective working relationships with Aboriginal clients and colleagues. You will explore the key themes and capabilities of cultural competency and understand how culturally appropriate policies and procedures can be embedded in your organisational culture.
- Understand the difference between being culturally aware, culturally competent and culturally safe;
- Apply knowledge of the intersection of cultural safety and trauma informed practice when it comes to providing culturally safe services, and
- Demonstrate increased confidence, skills, and capacity to be proactive in using work practices that reflect cultural competency.
