Child sexual abuse (CSA) and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities


The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse (2013–2017) identified Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities as a sub-group of Australia's population that we know very little about.

To help heed the call on building knowledge and capacity in the services sector, a cultural competency education program has been developed.

It is primarily designed for service providers in sexual assault and domestic violence organisations (e.g. counsellors, social workers, and psychologists). However, general practitioners (GPs), psychiatrists, and relevant program trainers, researchers and policy-makers are also invited to attend, as the content is relevant to their work.

Half day face-to-face lecture, with a short voluntary research component (GU HREC approval no. 2018/953)
