Social and emotional well-being in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australian communities-a view from down-under!
Social and emotional well-being (SEWB) challenges across Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia are as diverse as our own communities. Dr. Dickson will be joined by academic members of her team to share how current Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander graduate students, their workplaces and communities are responding to community SEWB needs. Specific examples of health promotion programs will be shared, as will the inspirational work of the team of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics who support graduate learners in the SEWB space. Taking a strength-based approach, the SEWB programs are community inspired and community driven. We will look forward to some open Yarning (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander conversations) about SEWB with you all.
