Webinar: Supporting culturally and linguistically diverse children and families who experience racism

Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of racism in its various forms. Racism hurts children and their families in real and fundamental ways, affecting not only their mental and physical health, but also their relationships and ability to grow.

Practitioners who work with children from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds must understand how racism operates. Understanding that experiences of racism can be systemic, and experienced by families in different ways, can help practitioners navigate conversations about racism and support CALD children’s mental health and wellbeing.

This webinar on Wednesday, 14 June from 1:00pm to 2:00pm will:

  • increase awareness of the effects of racism on child and family mental and emotional health and relationships
  • identify the support that parents from a CALD background need to support their child’s mental health and wellbeing
  • provide guidance on how practitioners can discuss and address racism.

This webinar is recommended for practitioners who may engage and work with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) children, families and communities.
