ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Delivered via interactive videoconference. This workshop is a PsyBA approved one day Master Class which will provide participants who are already approved supervisors with ongoing AHPRA accreditation for 5 years.
This is a new Master Class with delivery by Gayle Roe, Aboriginal woman and supervisor. This workshop will cover core principles in understanding and responding to the health and human rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, families and communities. Topics include an understanding of appropriate culturally responsive healthcare, culturally safe psychological practice that is trauma-aware with consideration of the history and impact of colonisation and ongoing racism. Appropriate culturally informed case formulation aligned to trauma healing will be reviewed covering application across the lifespan, the health needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Define and understand cultural capability, cultural competence (respect), cultural safety, cultural awareness, social and emotional wellbeing for Aboriginal people
- Identify behaviours, attitudes and values that weaken and strengthen social and emotional wellbeing for Aboriginal people
- Understand the impact of trauma, loss, racism and various other cultural concepts
- Better understand Aboriginal communities and the impact of substance use, FASD and their impact on child development in Aboriginal communities
- Identify the ethical guidelines, key intervention strategies and the history of working with First Nations people
- Be better placed to work from a health equity and human rights approach when working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, families and communities.
This workshop will define and provide examples of cultural capability, cultural competence (respect), cultural safety, and cultural awareness for both clinical and supervisory practice. Participants will learn how to support supervisees to improve social and emotional health outcomes through cultural safety activities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Ethical guidelines for working with the Aboriginal population, key intervention strategies and the history of working with First Nations people in Australia are discussed to develop improved culturally responsive and culturally safe psychological care across the lifespan. Included in this section is information on the importance of using non-verbal assessments and specific cultural and counselling/interviewing skills. There will be discussion on how to support psychologists develop and demonstrate culturally responsive healthcare considering the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, families, communities.
Topics included are the impact of colonisation, unfinished business, trauma and loss, racism, alcohol use, FASD in Indigenous Australia, child development in Aboriginal communities, the national apology and its meaning for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. These issues will be discussed in its relevance to supervision of clinical practice using reflective discussion and tasks.
The workshop provides an opportunity for participants to review the range of supervisor tasks covering core psychological competencies and how the supervisor embeds cultural safety in psychological supervision supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander psychologists and the community.
