About This Event
Foundation House, the Culture for Ethnicity and Health (in collaboration with students from the Translating and Interpreting Discipline, Global, Urban and Social Studies at RMIT University) have kindly put together a tailored workshop for the volunteers of The Water Well Project.
The aims of the workshop would be to:
– Explore how to work effectively with interpreters
– Explore how to engage CALD communities particularly around sensitive topics such as mental and sexual health.
– To practice facilitating a Water Well session (with interpreters present)
There will be an introduction component to working with CALD communities and some tips around how to effectively open dialogue about mental and sexual health with these communities from each of these experienced organisations.
In the next section, volunteers will then break up into two groups- either a Mental Health or Sexual Health group, and practice with Translating & Interpreting students from RMIT, facilitating sessions around either of these two themes.
This session capacity is 60 Volunteers from The Water Well Project.
There are currently 41 available places open to Volunteers.
