Ms Warber will discuss the background of the VAHS and the broader post colonial context of Aboriginal health and well being, as well as some of the challenges of working in the Aboriginal Community as both a mental health professional and a community member.

Ms Lesniowska will then present a case study of a client treated while on placement at VAHS, as an example of both the level of complexity clients can present with while on placement. There will also be discussion on how appropriate psychological assessment and treatment can be identified through both a western and Indigenous psychological perspective
