Course Description

Working Better with Nunga Kids was developed to instil a deeper understanding of how workers can adapt their thinking and better support Aboriginal (Nunga) children. This training aims to build confidence and understanding for supporting Aboriginal children, to help make a positive difference to families.

Developed by Aboriginal workers, facilitators will share their knowledge and skills to help you develop a culturally appropriate approach to working with Aboriginal children.

Participants will be introduced 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 will develop their understanding that children’s behaviour is communication, and responses to Nunga children and their parents must be therapeutic. Additionally, worker responses must take into account the effects of intergenerational trauma, and support connection and pride in culture.

The 14 May course is free for workers from Specialist Homelessness and Domestic Violence Services.
