Developing Cultural Competence

CultureWise Projects

Globe Project

The All Ireland Programme for Immigrant parents was a cross-border, inter-agency initiative aimed at immigrant parents and practitioners working with them throughout the island of Ireland.

The Globe Project aims to promote positive parenting through the provision of resource and practice tools which can be used by practitioners in organisations that work with immigrant parents.

Migrants have become an increasingly visible client group for both statutory and NGO sectors. They have particular needs which require tailored response. There is a growing wealth of experience of working with immigrant parents but little opportunity to collate the experiences and information – much of which is being carried out on a local level.

Dr. Grosu brings a level of professional skill and personal approachability to her work which is of a high professional standard. The testimonial I have heard Dr. Grosu and I am pleased to say that she engaged the audience in her presentation of the cultural aspects of medical illness. She used humour and audience participation both to reflect on the issues. Dr. Grosu approach was entirely suited to the audience of medical students drawn from a wide variety of cultures.
