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.
