Working Cross Culturally In The Trauma & Settlement Context

This one 3 hour interactive workshop has been developed to give participants a greater understanding of the impact of trauma and resettlement on identity. This workshop will include self reflection, peer reflection, discussions and sharing work experiences.

The frameworks that informs culturally competent practice will be explored throughout the workshop.

Cultural competence requires workers to have a heightened awareness and understanding of the many aspects of their own identities, including but not limited to gender, ethnicity, social class, sexual orientation, indigenous heritage, immigration/ colonization experiences, disability, and spirituality, and to understand how those aspect/ sectors of their own identity combine to impact on their work.

We will be discussing the key skills and competencies required, including cultural formulation skills. Application of the understanding and insights will be considered within the refugee context, particularly how they can be applied to supporting and working with individuals who have experienced trauma and communities in the process of resettlement.

The workshop will be useful for people working in a range of clinical and non-clinical settings such as counselling, case work, community development, bicultural support, youth work, advocacy and education.
