Panel: Supporting CALD children and young people

Introduction

Although 28% of people living in Australia were born overseas (2016 Australian Bureau of Statistics) there is no consistent data being collected about how many children and young people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (CALD) are in out of home care.  This lack of consistent data suggests that these children and young people are somewhat invisible and their cultural needs for connection, identity, and belonging are not being considered in an integrated and meaningful way.
Our panel of research and clinical leaders will share their knowledge and practice expertise.  They will engage in a discussion about the needs of CALD children and young people in out of home care, consider methods to raise awareness and understanding about this group, and share ideas on meeting their needs.
 
Panellists include:
Dr. Kathomi Gatwiri: Researcher Southern Cross University and Psychoanalyst
Kathy Karatasas: Head of Multicultural Child and Family Program Service Delivery NSW
Urgé Dinegde:  Practice Leader, Cultural Engagement Program.  Statewide Children and Families Branch Victoria
Lena Ford: Cultural Engagement Practitioner, Cultural Engagement Program Statewide Children and Families Branch Victoria
 
The panel will be facilitated by Cyra Fernandes, Senior Specialist in Therapeutic Care & Kelly Royds, Head of Knowledge Mobilisation and Innovation for the CETC.
