The reseacher's aim was to develop resources to support Aboriginal workers to further build their knowledge and skills to provide effective healing strategies to community members from a culturally relevant and evidence based perspective.
 
The researcher's were looking to find out and understand what were the successful strategies used by Aboriginal workers. To their knowledge this type of research had not been undertaken previously- they employed an exploratory, qualitative research study with a strengths based approach. 

The research adds to the body of knowledge and provides evidence for the healing ways of Aboriginal workers in relation to complex issues. This creates an evidence base from which to further develop a framework of care for the MH, AOD and SEWB Aboriginal workforce to continue to work effectively with clients with a dual diagnosis. It is an opportunity to further develop resources, training and models of clinical supervision to continue to enhance the skills of the workforce in a culturally appropriate manner.
