Introduction to cultural awareness

 

Overview

Developed by Monash University Rural and Indigenous Health and Ramahyuck District Aboriginal Corporation, this course aims to build the cultural competence and cultural safety of Gippsland based psychologists and allied health professionals working in the mental health field.

This course will provide an introduction into the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their culture, and the effects of colonisation, settlement and nationhood including past and present government policies and practices. Utilising this knowledge we work to develop and/or enhance individual participant's basic skills in effective and culturally appropriate engagement and communication with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities with a particular focus on self-development of communication and appropriate engagement protocols within specific communities.

Skills focused upon during the workshop include:
