Relationships & Sexual Health Program for workers in CALD/multicultural services

SHine, July 2016

Do you work with culturally and linguistically diverse / multicultural communities?

Do you want to be confident speaking about sexual health with your clients?

Do you want to understand how sexual health affects the overall health of your clients?

If so, then the Relationships & Sexual Health Program is for you.

This course provides you with opportunities to explore your attitudes towards sexual health and relationships education. You will gain the skills to be better placed to support your clients to make sense of their sexual health. This is a great opportunity for professional development and networking. It is important that workers promote and support the sexual and reproductive health of their clients as well as reducing the barriers to improved sexual and reproductive health.

Who would benefit from this course? Youth workers; sexual health workers; CALD health workers; reproductive and sexual health service providers; domestic violence workers; settlement workers; allied health workers; anyone who works with CALD communities.

A further optional day includes assessment which allows you to apply for a sexual health focused competency that may contribute towards a Certificate or Diploma in Community Services.
