Description

The Victorian Alcohol and Drug Association (VAADA) has been funded by the North West Melbourne Primary Health Network (NWMPHN) to facilitate workforce development opportunities across the region, including the delivery of a series of training workshops.

These workshops will only be available to staff from alcohol and other drug (AOD) programs, and for AOD services which are located within the NWMPHN boundaries.

The sessions and workshops will also be free of charge, however all participants need to register beforehand.

The training is targeted at clinicians.

Working Effectively with Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Clients has been recognised as a priority for workforce development, and the training will be delivered by Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health.

This training will be held in two parts.The first being an exploration of unconscious bias, and the second providing a foundation of cultural competence for clinicians.

The combined learning goals will include:

  • Identify causes of unconscious bias
  • Identify patterns that occur in workplaces
  • Identify ways both individuals and workplaces can reduce unconscious bias
  • Understand cultural influences on client worldviews
  • Identify principles and tools associated with cultural competence
  • Implement strategies to improve counselling services to clients from refugee and migrant backgrounds
