This report explains a model for providing culturally appropriate supervision to the Aboriginal alcohol and other drug (AOD), and social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) workforce. The model is based on the needs of these workers who often face difficult situations in the community, such as working with their own family and friends.

The report includes information on:

  • different types of supervision
  • results from consultations with workers
  • the supervision model
  • training options
  • resources and references.

This report is one of three key resources produced as part of Our healing ways project. It was developed by the Victorian Dual Diagnosis Initiative (VDDI) Education and Training Unit and funded by the Mental Health, Drugs and Regions Division of the Department of Health Victoria.
