Resilience in individuals and families coping with the impact of alcohol related injuries in remote Indigenous communities: a program of mixed method research

 

Overview

This proposed mixed method research project aims to describe and categorise injuries in four remote Indigenous communities in Cape York, far north Queensland. With a focus on alcohol-related injuries, the research will explore the long-term impact of this kind of injury on individuals, families and communities in order to better understand resilience strategies that have helped to minimise alcohol's negative effects.

Revealing how some individuals and families survive and thrive, new ways of working with families who need support may be identified and adopted. For individuals, families and communities, this project gives voice to the impact of alcohol-related injuries and also identifies the strengths used when faced with this situation.
