Understanding Cultural Diversity and Cultural safety: Working safely in a multi-cultural context

This training will:

  • Increase your understanding and appreciation for cultural difference
  • Offer concrete ideas for working in a culturally and supportive manner
  • Prepare you to work well with people from cultures different to your own

Course outline

  • Norms +Values + Beliefs= Culture

We begin with recognising what culture is and how each of us can identify the important aspects of our own culture.

  • Respecting difference: Cultural awareness and sensitivity

We will consider some of the key areas where perceptions might be different between individuals and learn about tolerance, respect and understanding in regard to this.

  • Cultural safety

Recognising why this is such an important aspect of our work not only with clients but also with each other. We will consider biculturalism in regard to safe relationships with others.

  • Putting learning into practice

Individual action plans will be developed where you will identify the learning that has occurred for you and how you plan to put your new knowledge into practice on the job.
