The Australian Indigenous Psychologists Assoc has developed a workshop to provide non-Indigenous mental health practitioners with the cultural competence required to deliver mental health services within Indigenous frameworks of social and emotional wellbeing and accommodate the social and historical determinants:
2-Day Working Together: The Journey Towards Cultural Competence With Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples workshop.
In 2015 AIPA will also offer 1-Day Steps On The Journey Workshops for those who have completed the 2-Day workshop and wish to increase their cultural competence when working with the following at-risk groups: children & young people; those at risk of suicide & self-harm; and those affected by policies of forcible removal (Stolen Generations).
Each workshop is facilitated by two Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander psychologists.
Since 2010, AIPA has successfully delivered 69 workshops to more than 1100 mental health practitioners.
