Learning from each other: working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people

Learning from each other: working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people aims to support workers and agencies working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people who use alcohol and other drugs. It is the fourth in a series of 'Good Practice Guides' developed by Dovetail in its role of providing professional support, resources and tools for youth and AOD workers in Queensland. Development of this guide acknowledges the particular knowledge, skills and approaches needed to successfully work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, their families and communities impacted by youth AOD use. The guide covers essential information for culturally secure practice with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, their families and their communities.

It builds on the information contained in the three previous 'Good Practice Guides' published by Dovetail: Guide 01 A framework for youth alcohol and other drug practice; Guide 02 Legal and ethical dimensions of practice; Guide 03 Practice strategies and interventions.
