Workshop – Helping Aboriginal Clients

Although services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients are best delivered by indigenous caseworkers, it is often necessary for this to be undertaken by non-indigenous workers. In such cases it is important for such workers to understand the cultural issues involved. The Workshop aims to assist workers in gaining such an understanding.
