CHCDIV002 Promote Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander cultural safety

Post by Newbie » Wed Apr 18, 2018 1:20 pm

Hi, just hoping I can get some feedback/help on this assignment...


Scenario 1 - Question 1
In your own words, explain briefly what is meant by cultural bias?

Answer:
Cultural bias is the tendency for an individual to judge the outside world through a narrow view based on their own culture. There are millions of people in the world, each belong to different cultures and have different beliefs and values. Cultural bias is the tendency to judge a person based on their cultural standards.

Question 2: Briefly describe one example of cultural bias related to common misconceptions about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Answer:
Some common misconceptions of Aboriginal people include all Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander people are all drunks, they are all violent, they are involved in too much crime, they get treated too leniently by police and courts and receive too much from welfare.

Question 3: Briefly describe one strategy to help promote cultural safety?

Answer:
Cultural safety is about creating an environment where the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person are not only treated well but in a culturally respectful manner. To help promote cultural safety it is important to recognising the impacts of the past and acknowledge that Aboriginal people are the first people who have an ongoing connection to this country beyond 40,000 years. It is important that we respect and embrace the Aboriginal culture, values and practise in order to create a culturally safe organisation. By including children in creating a poster to acknowledge the Traditional owners of the land is a fantastic way to get children involved in promoting cultural safety within the service.











Scenario 2
Director: One of the key goals of the Centre is to improve staff awareness of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories and how these may impact on the participation of children and their families at the Centre.
Can you identify one historical or cultural factor that may explain why some Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander children/families do not participate fully in the services provided by the Centre?

Answer:
Families may not participate fully in the service as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people may believe the service has a lack of awareness about their culture and beliefs.








Scenario 3
Director: Imagine you are on playground duty and you overhear a child calling an Aboriginal child ‘dumb’ because she takes her time in responding to questions in group activities.
What would you explain to the child who has made the comment so that he/she understands that this is inappropriate behaviour?


Answer:
Take time to explain to the child that the comment is not appropriate and may hurt the other child's feelings











Scenario 4
Director: Imagine a colleague has used a photo of a well-known local Aboriginal actor who passed away recently from a heart attack to reinforce the need to exercise regularly.
What would you explain to your colleague so that he/she understands that this is inappropriate and may offend Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children?


Answer:
Explain to the colleague that it is not appropriate and it may offender TSI children.



Any help would be appreciated!! thanks!!

I think the responses sound pretty good. Maybe in the scenarios go into a little more detail, other then that they sound accurate!
