Kate Lawrence - Waltja Tjutangku Palyapayi Aboriginal Corporation hosted a workplace orientation.
We spent the morning discussing appropriate methods for Indigenous participants.

They are integrating the PDL program (MASH, Lets Dance and Crazy Talk) into their methodology.
It is a great and fun way to pass on information especially in remote communities and break down the barriers such as language and culture. It can teach awareness, promote ideas and stories, keep culture strong and can be easily updated when needed.

It is a tool that can bring two different cultures together for the benefit of each other.

They have commissioned the development of a culturally appropriate "avatar" - Waltja Woman - to reinforce improving outcomes for families.

Other "flexible" strategies are used:
Flip Charts, video/DVD, brainstorming, graphical representations, appropriate & relevant scenarios and the good old - one 2 one (f2f) techniques.
