Aboriginal Decision Making






"It's Not Black or White" workshop intricately delves into the profound influence of personal experiences and values on decision-making processes. Through a diverse array of strategies, this training challenges participants to introspectively examine their life experiences, gaining insights into how their individual values shape decision-making, particularly in the context of Aboriginal families.

This training is designed to closely scrutinise the nuances of "good enough" parenting, prompting participants to comprehend the ramifications of their decision-making within the realm of child protection.

The workshop aims to address the following key issues:

a. Impact of Personal Values on Risk Assessment: Investigate how personal values play a pivotal role in decision-making concerning whether an Aboriginal child is deemed at risk.

b. Influence of Personal Experiences on Decision Making: Examine the impact of personal experiences in working with Aboriginal families and children on the decision-making process.

c. Worker Connections to Aboriginal Communities: Explore how workers' connections and linkages to Aboriginal communities can shape decision-making outcomes, both positively and negatively.

d. Addressing Neglect as an Aboriginal Child Safety Issue: Scrutinise why neglect stands out as a prominent safety concern for Aboriginal children and develop strategies for improved management of this issue.

Through these explorations, the workshop seeks to foster an understanding of the intricate interplay between personal experiences, values, and effective decision-making in the context of child protection, particularly concerning Aboriginal families.
