In this episode, we speak to Bill Wilson about what effective engagement of Aboriginal families and children looks like in non-Aboriginal services. Bill is a narratively-trained social and emotional wellbeing worker who has worked extensively in the fields of alcohol and drugs, child protection, child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), Aboriginal education, and Aboriginal men’s health. He is a strong advocate for the strength of Aboriginal people and communities and the opportunity for them to be the change agents in their own lives.
