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

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.
- Develop and implement a client-centred approach, that is sensitive to culture, racism, sexism, and professional power
Dr Pooja Sawrikar is interested in researching the nexus of culture and child protection - most specially to deliver a service that protects all children equally across cultures in multicultural countries like Australia.
