This fact sheet would be appropriate for both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as well as other Australians who work in health, particularly in the area of social and emotional wellbeing. The fact sheet will help workers to understand the meaning of healing in the Aboriginal and Torres Islander culture, which may allow them to work with more sensitivity and effectiveness.
