Aboriginal Culture Diversity Training
The Aboriginal Cultural Diversity Training takes a unique look at Aboriginal Culture and the diversity within it.
The facilitator will invite you to take part in a “conversation” about culture, what it is like for an Aboriginal person to live and work in Australia and how history has influenced Aboriginal people today. He will give some simple tips and techniques for working with Aboriginal people in a respectful way. The training is not designed to make you culturally aware; it is designed to make you aware of culture.
The Aboriginal Cultural Diversity sessions can be tailored to suit your needs. The two hour introduction which will give a very basic overview of Aboriginal culture and diversity and the four hour session which gives the same information as the two hour but allows time for more discussion and includes a cultural self-assessment.
