|About||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. Aboriginal workers 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 using the spheres of Mind, Body and Spirit, the interconnectedness of the spheres, and that for Aboriginal people, the three spheres must be healed.
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 responses must take into account the effects of intergenerational trauma, and encouraging and supporting connection and pride in their culture.
