  • how do Aboriginal social workers work with Aboriginal people and communities?
  • how do non Aboriginal social workers work with Aboriginal people and communities?

A qualitative methodology was adopted, which resulted in data being gathered by means of an open ended questionnaire, individual face to face and telephone interviews, and one group interview.
Data collected: digital recording and MSWord documents and transcripts for 19 interviews. Data collected by: Dr Joanna Zubrzycki), Violet Bacon (at the time academic staff University of Western Australia) and Bindi Bennett (at the time social work practitioner in New South Wales).
