Workshop: Cultural Responsiveness: Introduction to Principles and Practices - 26 Feb, 2019
About the workshop This workshop introduces participants to principles that inform culturally safe practice, while encouraging the exploration of practical skills to enhance diversity responsive mental health practice. Using a range of facilitation styles, participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own cultural values, beliefs and models in delivering recovery focussed interventions, and explore the relationship between policy, human rights legislation, and the manner in which we provide respectful person-centred care.

Participants in this workshop will explore:

• Key issues in cultural diversity, and the role of culture in mental health service delivery

• Practical skills to employ in delivering diversity responsive mental health interventions, including working with interpreters and approaches to assessment and recovery, community engagement and service development.

• The social determinants of health, ethnicity, cultural humility, cultural safety diversity and intersectional approaches

• Key government policies and human rights legislation in relation to culturally diverse practice

• The importance of reflective practice in creating culturally safe spaces
