Holiday Inn, 18-40 Anderson St, Parramatta

ENGAGING MEN EFFECTIVELY Short Course will equip allied health, human service, education, community workers and industry professionals with knowledge and skills to work more effectively with males, with the aim of improving the health, psychological, educational and social outcomes for them. The course acknowledges and recognises the challenges that men and boys face in today’s world of rapid changing social responsibilities and, provides a space for the men and women who work with men and boys to develop health promotion strategies that are male friendly and effective.

No previous experience or knowledge is required – only a willingness to learn, explore and grow. ENGAGING MEN EFFECTIVELY combines evidence based theory and practice with a focus on developing individual awareness, knowledge and interpersonal and group skills. The program is inclusive of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers’ health and wellbeing needs. Click here for program content.
