STARTTS – “Cultural Competence in Working with People from Refugee Backgrounds” workshop (6 August 2019, Coffs Harbour & 6 September 2019, Carramar)

This one day workshop will give participants a greater awareness of the key factors which impact on client-worker interactions such one’s worldview, privilege, bias and representation. Participants will come away with general knowledge of the socio-political contexts of the main countries of origin of refugees coming to Australia and how culture, identity and meaning are impacted by torture and other traumatic events, resettlement, interactions with the host culture and the Australian service provision context. The workshop will explore key worker attitudes and skills for working in a culturally competent and trauma informed manner with people from refugee backgrounds.
