Thursday 19 April 2018, 9.30am-12.30pm – Kuumba Imani Millennium Centre, 4 Princes Road, Liverpool, L8 1TH.
The aim of this free session is to present participants with a range of considerations in respect of their own engagement with Black and Minority Ethnic service users, their families and carers and to encourage participants to reflect on their awareness, knowledge, sensitivity and practice.
The outcome of the session is to be able to:
- Have an understanding of what is meant by cultural sensitivity
- Draw on examples of how culture influences health beliefs, practices, communication and how this can impact on service user care
- Identify some of our own biases and assumptions about others
- Understand and explain the rationale for cultural sensitivity in mental health care
- Feel more confident in being able to challenge inequality and discrimination in the workplace.
The training is for professionals or services working with children and young people and their families. Also for those interested in enhancing their knowledge and understanding in working with children and young people from BME communities.
