This is an interactive conversation about trauma and harm reduction when supporting Aboriginal clients. These sessions allow for a safe space to ask any questions about working with Aboriginal clients who are experiencing trauma while following the principles of harm reduction.
By attending this session, we hope you can walk away with a better understanding on the impacts of intergenerational trauma, engaging with Aboriginal clients in a culturally safe way, and the importance of harm reduction.
This training has been funded for workers employed in a Victorian State-funded Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) service, including those who are new to the AOD sector or recently employed under the COVID-19 Workforce Initiative and Peer workers.
Who is not eligible?
Students on placement or internships, workers from other community sectors such as Family Violence, Homelessness, and Mental Health, and AOD workers outside of Victoria.
