WHAT'S UP

WITH MY MOB?

Aboriginal Cultural

Responsiveness

 

What’s Up With My Mob? training is designed to actively challenge and reassess pre-existing perceptions of Aboriginal Peoples and their culture, fostering an environment that encourages participants to cultivate an improved understanding of Aboriginal clients, colleagues, and communities at large.

Aboriginal cultural responsiveness training will explore how individuals, organisations, and systems can effectively recognise, respect, and engage with the cultures, values, and traditions of Aboriginal Peoples. This cultural responsiveness training involves a deep understanding of the historical, social, and cultural contexts that shape the experiences of Aboriginal communities.

Key elements of our Aboriginal cultural responsiveness training include exploration of the following concepts embedded within the learning content:

  1.  Cultural Awareness: Developing an awareness and understanding of the diverse cultures, histories, and traditions of Aboriginal peoples.

  2. Respect: Treating Aboriginal cultures with respect, acknowledging the significance of their histories, and valuing their contributions.

  3. Cultural Competency: Acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to engage effectively with Aboriginal individuals and communities, understanding cultural protocols and communication styles.

  4. Collaboration: Working collaboratively with Aboriginal communities, involving them in decision-making processes, and respecting their right to self-determination.

  5. Cultural Safety: Creating environments that are culturally safe and free from discrimination, where Aboriginal individuals feel comfortable expressing their cultural identities.

  6. Reconciliation: Supporting and actively engaging in efforts towards reconciliation, acknowledging historical injustices, and working towards building positive relationships.

In various contexts, such as healthcare, education, and workplace settings, being culturally responsive to Aboriginal Peoples and their communities is crucial for promoting equity, understanding, and positive outcomes. It involves ongoing learning, humility, and a commitment to challenging systemic inequalities that impact Aboriginal peoples.
