Professional Development Program for Spiritual Care Practitioners

Date Posted: 13-Dec-2017

We are welcoming month-by-month registrations for our Professional Development Program for Spiritual Care Practitioners.  All information is available on our website.

Fourth Session - Wednesday 13 June 2018, Baptcare Bundoora

TOPIC: “Cross-Cultural Considerations on the Ageing” with Arati Vidyasagar - Information Outreach Worker for Seniors Information at Council of the Ageing (COTA) Victoria.

In our multicultural society, we need to ensure we can meet the needs of older people from the many ethnic communities that now call Australia home. This session will offer participants the opportunity to reflect on their practices, and develop strategies to improve their interaction with older people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.
We will look at:
- why cultural ‘competency’ is not enough
- increasing understanding on issues of stigma and cultural expectations
- communication skills and gendered cross-cultural sensitivity
- providing information in a language that older people can understand
- the need to respect older people’s religious and/or spiritual beliefs and values.
