Indigenous AOD Workers' Wellbeing Resources

Our Healing Ways. Supervision: A Culturally Appropriate Model for Aboriginal Workers

Type: Book
Author: Victorian Dual Diagnosis Education and Training Unit
Publisher: Department of Health Victoria
Year: 2012

This resource provides a model to help meet the need for culturally appropriate supervision for Aboriginal workers who work in the alcohol and other drug (AOD), and social and emotional wellbeing fields.

The model was based on the needs of the Aboriginal alcohol and other drug (AOD), mental health, and social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) workforce. It recognises that Indigenous workers in the health workforce are often working with community (including their own families, friends and colleagues).

This document is one of three key resources produced through the 'Our healing ways' project. This project was part of the Victorian Dual Diagnosis Initiative (VDDI) and was supported by the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO), Victorian Aboriginal Health Service (VAHS), and Ngwala Willumbong State-wide Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Service.

The project was funded by the Mental Health, Drugs and Regions Division of the Department of Health Victoria.
