Description

Cultural Competence Training for Family Law Solicitors

Dr Naomi Mascheti

This workshop aims to strengthen solicitor’s knowledge of their non-western client’s cultural and contextual world. This training program has been adapted from Pederson (1994) ‘triparte developmental model of cultural competence’ targeting attitudes, knowledge and skills. Participants will be facilitated to reflect on their attitudes (assumptions, generalization, stereotypes) towards cultural others. Cross-cultural, cultural and indigenous literature on non-western cultural ontological and epistemological orientation will be presented in view of implications on child rearing practices, family dynamics, communication and relational patterns. Tensions/conflicts between non-western ethnic minority famiies and pactitioners relating to non-western/western cultural differences will be examined. Migration literature’s input on the acculturation stress, with a focus on migration policy and practices will also be examined including immigration law issues for migrant children and families in Ireland. A reflection and discussion session will highlight areas in which cultural, migration and other contextual narratives can become entangled. This program aims to enhance solicitor’s capacity to disentangle these narratives as they provide services to non-western cultural migrant children and families.

Dr. Naomi Masheti is a consultant in cultural competence practice and a guest lecturer in university college cork, psychology department. Naomi has worked as part of multi-disciplinary teams (national & international) providing culturally sensitive services to families and children in local communities in Kenya and Sudan. Her doctoral research focused on social and cultural processes that influence the wellbeing of African migrant children in Ireland. As a direct result of her PhD work at UCC, Naomi developed a well-structured cultural competent training program, which she is currently delivering in workshop format to service providers in Ireland.
