Cultural Safety Training

This 1-day training session equips mainstream crisis services to engage/help ethnic communities better.

This course is designed for organisations working with ethnic clients in the fields of family or sexual violence. It includes skills to increase intercultural practice, skills to talk about family and sexual violence with culturally diverse and migrant clients and practice based knowledge, including essential elements to explore with culturally diverse clients.

The workshop is tailored to each region’s needs through pre-evaluation survey analysis.

Participants gain theoretical knowledge and practical tools to take back and use with their ethnic clients. They also take communications tips for asking critical questions about faith, culture, racism, and visas.
