Abstract

This article describes a successful partnership between Indigenous and non Indigenous workers in relation to women, violence and healing. The focus was on identifying and using Indigenous practice approaches, taking a community development approach and a project that produced culturally-relevant Strengths Cards ("Yarnabout Cards"), which provided benefits for all partners. The processes used are documented. The project involved a work-based social work student placement, the benefits of which are also discussed. It is hoped this may serve as an example or guide for others interested in collaborative learning and working with Indigenous communities and work -based social work student field placements that can provide positive learning experiences.
