A one day, face to face course.
Who should attend?
This course is for frontline staff working with and supporting people with cognitive disability who are at risk of contact, or are in contact, with the Justice System. Managers are also welcome to attend, ideally in addition to rather than instead of their frontline staff.
As a one-day course providing free training in this area, this is an ideal opportunity for frontline staff to gain new skills, at no cost to their organisation.
This workshop aims to challenge and test past perceptions of Aboriginal Peoples and their culture and will encourage participants to develop a more respectful understanding of Aboriginal clients, work mates and society in general.
This workshop will address cultural realities of Aboriginal Peoples with disabilities in order to improve service delivery to Aboriginal clients and co-workers.
The consolidated trauma of trans-generational trauma, lateral violence and cultural loads impact on all Aboriginal families and may affect their ability to improve outcomes in their own lives. The effects of consolidated trauma influences the way in which Aboriginal Peoples perceive services, and impacts on the way in which we provide service to Aboriginal families.
- Learn about the three major issues which impact on Aboriginal Peoples of today:
1. Trans-generational Trauma
2. Lateral Violence
3. Cultural Loads
- Identify and consider the actual and potential impacts of these issues upon Aboriginal Peoples
- Develop the skills for managing clients and families who are affected by these issues and have family members with a disability
