My Story Cards
These story cards were produced as an Aboriginal specific therapy tool in the alcohol and other drugs sector. The resource kit contains picture cards, which depict 25 'life areas'. Health workers use the cards to encourage communication between counsellor and client, and engage the participant(s) in a therapy session.
The story cards were developed in partnership with Aboriginal people to ensure that they were appropriate and culturally sensitive as a therapeutic (healing) tool.
