The Foundation course - June 2021 (online webinar)
The target audience for the Foundation Course are those new to the gambling harm treatment and support sector and associated community organisations. This course is an introduction to gambling in Victoria and is ideal for new staff members as it provides a good introduction to gambling in Victoria and an overview to the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation. There are seven online modules to complete followed by a webinar.
Aboriginal cultural safety workshop
This half day workshop will allow participants to explore how our own attitudes and values influence perceptions, assumptions and behaviours within the workplace, raise participants' knowledge about the diversity of cultural experiences, explain what a culturally safe workplace looks like and how to plan towards a culturally safe workplace.
Pasefika cultural awareness training
This course will provide an overview of Pasefika cultures and histories – from the great oceanic waves of migration to 20th and 21st century diaspora in the Western world, the challenges faced by Pasefika communities in Australia, and how to effectively engage with Pasefika communities.
Psychodynamic group work
This workshop will provide an overview of psychodynamic group work, including its rationale and hypothesis. It will explore the group as a system with its own life which is conscious and unconscious and the subsystems within a group. It will also examine how unconscious emotional processes shape group behaviour and how unconscious processes inhibit the work of the group.
This is most suited for therapeutic counsellors.
