  • Tasmania’s current demographics, including diversity in languages and religions
  • experiences of people subject to forced migration
  • common refugee experiences prior to arrival in Australia
  • basic definitions regarding trauma
  • cross-cultural communication skills
  • communication variations across cultures
  • awareness about working with interpreters, and
