Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander worker wellbeing resources and strategies for responding to methamphetamine
Following the launch of its new workforce development resource Methamphetamine use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people: Intervention options for workers and the reprint of its highly successful Feeling Deadly/Working Deadly Resource Kit, NCETA conducted a webinar on 30 July 2019 for HealthInfoNet’s Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre. The webinar continues the ongoing collaborative relationship between NCETA and the Knowledge Centre and forms an important part of the Knowledge Centre’s knowledge exchange program.
NCETA’s two-part webinar focused on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander worker wellbeing and resources and strategies for dealing with stressful work-related issues e.g. responding to people using methamphetamine.
The first part showcased NCETA’s extremely popular Feeling deadly, Working Deadly Resource Kit which provides workers, supervisors and managers with strategies to reduce the risk of stress and burnout and enhance worker wellbeing. Attendees were given examples of what organisations and individual workers can do to support each other.
The second part used NCETA’s resource Methamphetamine use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people: intervention options for workers to:
- Explore why people use methamphetamine
- Highlight examples of the associated health, social and emotional wellbeing issues
- Outline the range of intervention options that workers can use to support people who are using methamphetamine.
The recording of the webinar is available from the Australian Indigenous Knowledge Centre website and the NCETA YouTube Channel.
