“I found the training to be culturally specific for our clients and useful in that it encouraged us to explore the specific factors that may be affecting our clients, including cultural bound syndromes and acculturative stress.We were also given opportunities to workshop case studies and strategies to address minimization and observe the Westerman Aboriginal Symptom Checklist for youth and adults to determine risk levels.Overall one of the best workshops I have attended.”Malinda Flynn, Gallang Place, Practice Manager

“Gallang” is a word from the Jagera nation and means “healing”.
Permission was sought from Jagera Elder, the late Senator Neville Bonner AO, to use this word for our counselling service.
