Yarning with Dinny

  • magic Cottage 236 Fouth St Geraldton, WA, 6530 Australia

This session is with the amazing Reggie Richardson, and will assist early years educators to learn about Cultural Competence.

Reggie is a Yamaji woman and is a traditional owner of the Wilunyu group. In 2013, Reggie began studies in Community Services after realising her strength was understanding the needs of young children living with complex trauma and her passion was to reduce and eliminate the effects of the trauma during the early stages of neurodevelopment. Through her studies and training in trauma, Reggie has recognised that culture played a significant role in the healing process. Reggie has begun to inform organisations and program facilitators about the importance of cultural competence in engaging authentically and safely with Aboriginal people. She is in her second year studying a Bachelor of Social Work through Central Queensland University and is a founding member of Keeping on Track (KOT) and Yamaji Girl. 

This session will share knowledge and practice that will directly relate to the Early Years Learning Framework Practice - Cultural Competence.
