Linking cultural identity to health and wellbeing. Adam Dunn, Wurundjeri and Kamilaroi man
A presentation with Adam Dunn, a Wurundjeri and Kamilaroi man who works as a Family therapist at Berry Street, and Sophie Blackmore, APD.
This candid conversation between Adam Dunn and Sophie Blackmore will ignite sparks of curiosity and prompt questions you’ve yet to think of. They take you on a meandering yarn that contemplates what really makes a great ‘Welcome to Country’, what NAIDOC week is all about and the rich diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in our country.
They discuss the importance of cultural curiosity, where to get relevant information about your local indigenous community and why deep listening and trust is essential. Tips about humility, talking less, body language and nonverbal communication will inspire you to truly listen to your Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients and do your paperwork later. Your understanding of the importance of presenting authentically and creating a culturally safe environment will be taken to a new level.
This is not a Q & A, or a linear conversation, it’s an experience that will gently open doors in your mind.
