A most valuable resource to non Aboriginal people working with Aboriginal people and their families

I work in Mental health and also Child Protection and this book is a wonderful addition to better understanding Aboriginal clients and their possible responses to assessments or other types of inquiry. Anyone working in education, legal, and psychosocial areas should read this book. It will help provide some insight and understanding the lived experiences of Aboriginal Australians. Given consideration it can assist in the development of communication processes that overcome the existing inequalities across these sectors.
Highly recommended
