Abstract

Providing social work and community work services in rural, remote and mining communities often involves providing limited visiting services by professionals who drive or fly in to communities on either a regular or irregular basis. How to develop trusting relationships with such communities and also provide valued services can be a challenge. Strategies to survive and thrive professionally in this context are identified and discussed. Overcoming professional isolation, burnout and some hints on self care are also detailed.
