Dovetail are proud to announce the release of our fourth Youth Alcohol and Drug Good Practice Guide - Learning from Each Other: Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Young People. This Guide was developed over a period of 18 months in consultation with frontline Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander services from across Queensland and contains valuable commentary, information, tools, case studies and practical resources to assist workers, services and communities to enhance their practice with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people.
We wish to extend a hearty thanks to all members of the Learning From Each Other Network (listed on Page 6 of the Guide) for their considerable time and effort brainstorming, contributing and editing the Guide. We would also like to acknowledge the fantastic work of Anne Elliott and her team at Encompass Family and Community Pty Ltd for their expert consultation and writing services.
An electronic version of the Guide can be downloaded free-of-charge here. Alternatively, if you are in Queensland and wish to order hard copies please phone 3837 5621 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
PS: To accompany this Guide Dovetail plans to produce a toolkit of culturally secure youth AOD materials, templates and resources over the next 12 months, so stay tuned! See the FebFast story below for more details.
This initiative is funded by the Queensland Government.
