Developing Cultural Competence

Globe Project

Do you work with immigrant parents?
Would you like to improve your skills in engaging this target group?
Would you like access to programme materials and information, translated into ten languages?
Would you benefit from considering cultural issues and raising your own awareness regarding promoting positive parenting with immigrant families?

This workshop could be just the thing for you!

The Globe all-Ireland Programme for Immigrant Parents has developed a set of programme materials (a toolkit) and an information pack, aimed at enabling immigrant parents to access services; understand how our system works, and link into supports. It also offers the practitioner ideas for working in an inclusive, non-judgemental way, with this client group.

Over the course of one day, participants will consider factors which impact on cultural competence; be taken through some activities from ‘The Globe’ Toolkit for practitioners working with immigrant parents, and have the opportunity to network with others engaged in similar work.

The event is targeted at anyone working (paid or unpaid) with immigrant parents, in either group work settings, or on a one to one.

CultureWise Ireland is the official training partner with non-exclusive rights for the delivery of Globe AIPIP workshops.

“I found that having the space to discuss some of our specific difficulties when working with immigrant groups was very helpful, to listen to others and help each other gain understanding and find solutions and agreed on ways to change our methodologies or approaches.

A good deal of openness, self awareness and understanding is required to truly be willing to communicate and work in an effective way with people outside my own culture…

What we needed was very specific discussion and exploration of issues regarding various cultural communication including tips and pointers that may help us in our day to day work and we got down to this more in our second follow up session.”
