Australia’s first Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Indigenous Framework
Sep 8, 2023
An article by Nicole Hewlett has outlined the process in developing Australia’s first Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Indigenous Framework. The article discusses the collaborative process involved in knowing, being and doing, bringing together Aboriginal wisdom (strengths-based, healing-informed approaches grounded in holistic and integrated support) and western knowledge and therapeutic approaches, to inform assessment, diagnosis and support for FASD. This approach offers immense benefit to equity, justice, support and healing for Aboriginal families with a lived experience of FASD.
Go to the video by Nicole Hewlett, UQ lead author and researcher, talking about the development and research of the framework.
