Building positive cultural identity
Supporting positive cultural identity for children and young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds in out-of-home care and adoption is easier said than done. This course aims to support carers to find more meaningful and practical ways to support a child’s development of positive cultural identity.
At the end of this three hour workshop participants will be able to:
- Describe the influence of culture on the interaction between foster carers and children and young people in the foster care context
- Identify strategies to support ongoing and new cultural connections
- Identify strategies for supporting children to respond to racism and prejudice
Target audience: Foster carers and adoptive parents.
