Emerging Minds: Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Families and Children Toolkit

Aug 21, 2020

Earlier this year, Emerging Minds (the National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health) published “Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Families and Children Toolkit.” The toolkit was developed in order to assist non-Aboriginal practitioners to develop genuine connections with Aboriginal people and communities. Non-Aboriginal workers sometimes feel nervous about making mistakes and offending Aboriginal people, yet this can be a barrier to learning and gaining experience. This toolkit includes principles of practice, stories of hope, and specific guidance on working with Aboriginal children and young people.
