Course Description

Working better with Nunga kids instils a deeper understanding of how to adapt your thinking and better support Aboriginal (Nunga) children. It will help build your confidence and understanding of how to support Aboriginal children and make a positive difference to families.

This one day course was developed by Aboriginal workers. Facilitators share their knowledge and skills to help you develop a culturally appropriate approach to working with Aboriginal children. They introduce participants to Healing the Aboriginal Way; the concept of spheres of Mind, Body and Spirit, the interconnectedness of these spheres, and the importance for Aboriginal people of healing all three.

Working through a trauma lens, participants develop their understanding that children’s behaviour is communication and responses to Nunga children, and their parents, must be therapeutic. Additionally, worker responses must consider the effects of intergenerational trauma and support connection and pride in culture.

Working better with Nunga kids training is free for workers from specialist homelessness and domestic violence services.

Please note: Skills Centre Training (Port Augusta and Berri) is supported by the Department for Education, Government of South Australia.
