About this event

When working with clients from different cultural backgrounds, it is important to have the ability to understand quickly how their cultural beliefs and values shape their way of thinking. Participants will be introduced to a framework which can be used to quickly identify a client’s cultural profile and gain skills on how to work with it.

Information and strategies for working with first and second generation migrants, refugees and Adult Third Culture Kids will also be introduced.

With the UK being a multi-cultural society, it is essential to gain the knowledge and skills on how to work effectively with clients from different cultures and backgrounds.

Who is the workshop aimed at?

Counsellors, Coaches, Social Workers, and anyone supporting refugees and migrants.

About the Trainer - Grace Doris

Originally from Malaysia, Grace has had years of experience living and working in different cultures. Having met her husband on an international ship – the MV Doulos in 1990, getting married to him in 1994 required Grace to relocate to Brisbane, Australia for 8 years. While in Australia, she gained a degree in theology and ministry (with an associate diploma in social sciences) and their two children were born.

In 2002 their family returned to the MV Doulos for another 4 years of adventure visiting over 70 ports in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East while living and working with staff and crew from 40 different cultures.

Since then, Grace and her family have been settled in Aberdeen, Scotland where she has had over 10 years of experience as an Intercultural Coach & Consultant, working predominantly with the oil and gas industry, the local council, Syrian refugees, churches, universities, and the NHS. Grace has also recently gained a diploma in counselling and is now practicing as a counsellor in Aberdeen.
