March 15, 2021
About Working with First Nations Families and Children
This course will assist you, as a non-Aboriginal practitioner, to develop the skills and understanding to build genuine partnerships with First Nations children, families and communities.
It will also help you to understand how this will benefit and enrich you personally and professionally.
You are invited to approach this learning with curiosity, as well as a willingness to reflect on the cultural lens each of us brings to interactions with First Nations families and to consider the impact this has on engagement with those families.
Who is this course for?
This course is for non-Aboriginal practitioners who work with First Nations children, families, and communities. It has been developed with the support and guidance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, to specifically support non-Aboriginal practitioners in mainstream organisations to engage with First Nations families.
How long does this course take?
This course will take approximately 1.5 hours to complete, and includes reading the material, videos and reflective activities. It is designed to be undertaken individually, but can also be used as a prompt for conversations between colleagues.
