Ways of Working with Aboriginal People (Part one and two)

 

Overview

Target audience: Workers in the alcohol and other drug (AOD) and/or mental health sectors who have Aboriginal clients (individuals and families). Aboriginal workers are also encouraged to attend.

Course summary: These courses form part of the Strong Spirit Strong Mind Training Program.

Part one of the training covers the exploration of Aboriginal peoples’ lives before, during and after colonisation; developing cultural competencies, understanding oppression and how to challenge it; and building a stronger future for Aboriginal peoples.

Part 2 of the training is an expansion of the topics covered in Day 1 but with a more clinical focus. There is a review of Part 1, then an introduction to Aboriginal ways of counselling; how to establish rapport (including skills rehearsal); using Aboriginal AOD models for culturally secure assessment; Strong Spirit Strong Mind Story Telling Cards and skill building activities to build confidence.

The training is run on two non-concurrent days.
