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. The workshop has been designed to strengthen individuals, organisations, and the services they offer. You will explore the key themes and capabilities of cultural competency and understand how culturally appropriate strategies, policies and procedures can be embedded in our organisational culture.
- Increased understanding of the difference between being culturally aware, culturally competent and culturally safe;
- Increased knowledge of the intersection of cultural safety and trauma informed practice when it comes to providing culturally safe services, and
- Increased confidence, skills and capacity to be proactive in using work practices that reflect cultural competency.
