    This is a great article Helen. Thanks so much for posting this.

    On the back of the Apology to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people which the Australian Psychological Society delivered in 2016, Tanja Hirvonen and I have developed a workshop which we’ll be delivering at this year’s APS Congress to look specifically at what practitioners can do in their practice to be more engaging and effective with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

    This is a crucial issue which we need to take very seriously. Clearly we need to start acting differently if we want different results. In our workshop we’ll be picking up on many of the important issues that you raise such as the impact of colonisation and the importance of focussing on strengths.

    Warm regards,
