  • Christian Spirituality in Aboriginal Australian Context

  • Health, Cultural Safety and Chaplaincy

Some pre-reading and other preparation may be required.

Quotes from previous participants:

“Useful practical info presented in interesting and experiential ways”

"I learned more than I’d ever learned in formal education or life alongside Indigenous people in Australia. If you want to take steps toward understanding our Indigenous brothers and sisters, I couldn’t recommend this course more as a comprehensive introduction to effective communication and the means to true unity."

“If I was ever tempted to think I could just 'feel my way' through cross-cultural interactions with Aboriginal Australians, 'Living in Two Worlds' helpfully dispelled that illusion. The course opened my eyes to the profound differences between Western and Aboriginal worldviews and gave me an invaluable toolkit for starting to engage in that space.”

"I would heartily recommend T-TRIM to any Christian who is doing ministry to Aboriginal people" (both Top End and Central Australia).

"A fantastic and insightful week of cultural training, filled with relevant theory and real stories. Highly recommend!"

"This course has been good in giving a deeper understanding and reasons as to why we might experience culture challenges."

"A helpful introduction to those going into the field and extended learning for those already engaged in Aboriginal ministry."

Living in Two Worlds

"Understanding your level of cultural intelligence (CQ) is extremely important when preparing to enter into a new and contrasting culture. TTRIM is a great opportunity to learn and self-reflect on how you can best prepare and grow your CQ before you immerse yourself in a new culture."

Health & Chaplains

"It was helpful in understanding the barriers and communication errors of health."

"Great information shared and really helpful in beginning to understand the complexities of Indigenous health programs."
