The training provides participants with the platform to deliberate, interact, explore, review and challenge ideas around cross-cultural practices. Participants will also be introduced to ideas and concepts that can facilitate and enhance a cultural responsive practice. This course will help to broaden the definition, practice and responses towards developing a more systemic view of culture.
Trainers will pay acute attention to their experiences of working with minority communities. The course will encourage participants to interact and intra-act with their own cultures, and that of others.
At the end of the course, the participants will learn:
1. To develop a systemic relationship with culture
2. To have an intercultural understanding of systemic theory and practice
3. To identify cultural biases in practice
4. To instil culture of humility and empathy in social work and mental health practice
5. To cultivate and co-construct culturally caring responsive environment within their practice contexts
6. To learn and be inspired from others around the world working in similar contexts
The course is suitable for
Anyone working in mental health, social care, education, religious and pastoral related fields. There is no requirement to hold a core profession, but applications are particularly welcome from those already qualified as social workers, family therapist, psychologist, nurses etc who wish to enhance their intercultural practice. There are protected places for international trainees from Singapore and Malaysia, as well as the UK and the wider global community. We anticipate a cohort comprised of trainee from around the world.
