by Sims, Margaret | Guilfoyle, Andrew | Kulisa, Judy | Targowska, Anna | Teather, Susan.

Publisher: West Perth, W.A. Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth 2008Description: PDF.Notes: Family & early yearsSummary: "This paper reports on research (both primary research and a literature review), undertaken with the aim of demonstrating strategies for successful inclusion into Australian society of children and families from culturally and linguistically different (CaLD) backgrounds. We recognise that CaLD children and families are commonly disadvantaged through being part of a minority group in Australia, their experiences prior to migration (for example refugee trauma), the different values and practices they may encounter here, the difficulty of learning a new language, the problems they face having qualifications and experience ratified, and the varying forms of racism the may experience. A number of innovative and highly successful programmes operate in different areas of Australia that are very successful in supporting CaLD families." -- Summary. ; CULTURALLY AND LINGUISTICALLY DIVERSE (CALD)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A review of literature relating to family and domestic violence in culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Australia /

by Bonar, Maria | Roberts, Debra.

Publisher: Perth, W.A. WA Department of Community Development 2006Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Family & early yearsSummary: This provides a literature review on issues and initiatives relating to family and domestic violence in culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities in Australia. A review of Australian statistics, national and jurisdictional research, good practice guidelines and models on working with women and families, working with children and working with men, as well as culturally appropriate responses to family and domestic violence, has been conducted. It finds that research has been conducted with specific ethnic groups but it reports that it is hard to provide accurate statistics for the extent and nature of domestic violence within CaLD communities. It suggests the need for an integrated national data collection system. There have been national competency standards developed for service providers who come into contact with people affected by family violence from CaLD backgrounds, which have provided consistency and identified skills and knowledge needed to work in the field with men, women and children experiencing domestic violence. Research findings show that many of the agencies and service providers have supported procedures that are more inclusive but in practice, the strategies do not seem to be implemented. New culturally appropriate models and interventions are required to ensure there are good practice models and guidelines. It suggests the need to focus on rural and remote communities and also innovative strategies that suit Western Australia s geography and demography. The importance of general practitioners and the health system for women from CaLD backgrounds is highlighted and the lack of qualified interpreters and of appropriate referral options should be addressed as a key strategy. Research suggests that positive messages reinforcing community values such as family harmony and healthy relationships may be more effective than confronting and aggressive messages. Specific services for CaLD groups may be required as they may not use mainstream services for a range of reasons. A recurring theme of the literature indicates that for prevention, protection of victims and provision of services, the one size does not fit all is common insofar as mainstream services are not equipped to deal with the complex needs of marginalised groups. Another common theme is the need to engage key community and religious leaders to address family violence in CaLD communities. Settlement issues also mean there is a need for new and emerging communities to be informed of Australian law and services within a culturally appropriate forum. It calls for an urgent need to develop culturally appropriate interventions and holistic preventative programmes that target men from CaLD backgrounds who perpetrate domestic violence.Availability: (1)

In October 2008, the Ethnic Communities' Council of Victoria (ECCV) Aged Care Committee hosted a public seminar on this timely issue. This discussion paper presents the initial findings of that consultation and highlights some of the key issues raised.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
