The Culturally Reflective Casework Practice podcast series focuses on a practice model that supports practitioners in working with culturally diverse clients and families. Guest speaker, Janet Irvine, discusses the needs and challenges that can impact on clients from CALD backgrounds, and identifies ways in which organisations & practitioners can adapt Reflective Practice in their casework.
The information covered in this series has been based on Train the Trainer sessions developed by the Multicultural Services Unit of Family and Community Services (FaCS). Additional resources and links can be found in the Learning Centre’s Resource Shelf.
