We provide a range of training to assist your organisation in all areas of LGBTI inclusion and affirmative practice, while also providing expertise from staff across Thorne Harbour Health's services. All of our training is evidence-based and backed by best practice research. Our expertise and scope ranges from alcohol and other drug services, counselling, relationship and family violence, trans and gender diverse health, HIV prevention, sexual health, and services for people living with HIV.
WHAT WILL THE TRAINING DO FOR YOU?
Thorne Harbour Health training will assist your organisation to develop greater knowledge, skills and best practice in working effectively with LGBTI people and communities. Our training promotes a safe learning environment, facilitated by LGBTI identified trainers, to enable constructive and empathetic discussions and interactions to take place.
WHERE IS THE TRAINING HELD?
We can travel to your organisation or host your team at our site at 615 St Kilda Road, Melbourne. We can travel to any location in Victoria and interstate, however some regional and rural areas may incur additional travel fees.
Our training typically runs for 1.5 – 3.5 hours with a break. We can customise the training to suit your needs.
Your organisation may also benefit from Secondary Consultation and Reflective Practice Sessions.
Thorne Harbour Health staff will be available for one-off ‘case based’ discussions with staff from your organisation via phone, email, skype or face-to-face. Secondary consultation is ongoing.
REFLECTIVE PRACTICE SESSIONS
Sessions are built around a series of structured questions. These are designed to support practitioners to reflect on their own feelings, beliefs, and experiences in a constructive way, whilst identifying existing strengths and competencies they can draw on when developing their LGBTIQ affirmative practice. Sessions are customised according to organisational need and can include modules such as role-playing, facilitated group discussion, clinical supervision, group exercises and supported individual work.
