DescriptionThis two-hour webinar will introduce you to an understanding of culture from a First Nations perspective, especially in the context of colonisation. In particular we will explore the notion of cultural humility and its meaning and relevance when working with First Nations families in Australia.
This webinar will also give you an understanding of the unique and specific ways in which First Nations families have been impacted by colonisation and the consequent trauma effects, including how First Nations families have learnt to survive. This understanding will form the foundation for understanding ways to engage First Nations families effectively, safely, and respectfully. Specific ideas for what you need to be aware of and attend to if you are a non-First Nations worker will be explored.
