Migrant Resource Centre is delivering training on Working with people from a CALD background.  As the demographics of Tasmania change, so does our need to be able to work effectively with people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.

Participants can either attend as a full day workshop, or attend stand alone modules. Each module will cover:

  • Module 1: 9am – Cultural Awareness Training—demographics in Tasmania, Australia’s migration program, diversity in language and religions, definitions (migrant, refugee, asylum seeker) and settlement experience
  • Module 2: 11.15am – Torture and Trauma Awareness—common refugee experiences prior to arrival in Tasmania, how a person who has experienced trauma might behave or communicate, and strategies used to work with people who have experienced torture or trauma
  • Module 3: 1.30pm – Culturally Sensitive Communication—communication variations across cultures, awareness about using interpreters, and culturally sensitive consultation or interview strategies
  • The Migrant Resource Centre and the Phoenix Centre, our services and what we do

Suitable for:
Anyone working with, or intending to work with, people from a culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) background.
Appropriate for Tasmanian Transcultural Mental Health Network members.
