Further training in cultural sensitivity
Immigrants from many cultural backgrounds are clients, patients, or employees in counselling centres, hospitals, geriatric care and social institutions. This sometimes leads to special questions or special needs these institutions should be prepared for.
In addition to migrants now living in Germany for generations, new groups of migrants have arrived in recent years, especially those who had to leave their country of origin as part of so-called “forced migration”, e.g. due to war and crises. Professional preparation for the demands of increasing diversity in society is thus becoming ever more necessary.
On all these issues, we have been offering training courses and educational events in various forms for many years.
Following two successful series of further trainings, fokus³ is our third, extended series of offers on culturally sensitive work for actors in the social and health sectors. Trainings in this project will be free of charge until the middle of 2020, thanks to financial support from the Fund for Asylum, Migration and Integration (AMIF).
