Cross-Cultural Approaches

Many countries have been, forged by subsequent waves of immigration and home to refugees from all over the world. Cultural diversity is the norm rather than the exception, and likely to be encountered by helping professionals on a routine basis. Despite its ubiquitousness, cultural differences can pose significant challenges to clinicians and helpers in general and often become a barrier to effective service provision

It is all too common to see well meaning and competent clinicians become unravelled by the lack of familiar clues and contextual landmarks encountered in working with someone from a radically different culture and world view.

The lectures featured in this section will explore the complexities of working with a culturally diverse client group, and provide some hints and guidelines to assist clinicians and those in the helping professions in general overcome the challenges posed by various aspects of this diversity.

The section will feature lectures from a range of national and international presenters from a range of backgrounds. We are particularly indebted in this section to the input from   many STARTTS members, an Australian organization that has assisted over 24,000 refugees in a clinical setting and many more through community development initiatives, and that currently employs over 50 clinicians from as many as 25 different nationalities and ethnic backgrounds.
