OUR HEALING WAYS: DUAL DIAGNOSIS RESOURCES FOR INDIGENOUS HEALTH WORKERS

"Our Healing Ways" was a project of the Victorian Dual Diagnosis Initiative, which looked specifically at building capacity around Indigenous dual diagnosis issues.  The project has just launched three key resources which many workers in Queensland will find useful.  This includes "Our Healing Ways Manual: Putting Wisdom into Practice", a manual which describes best practice Aboriginal perspectives on dual diagnosis issues; "A resource book for Aboriginal workers on the relationship between alcohol and drugs and mental health" which provides general information on holistic assessment, recovery planning, stages of change and interventions; and "Supervision: A culturally appropriate model for Aboriginal workers" developed to meet the needs of Indigenous Health Workers working in AOD, mental health or related fields.
