Abstract

The purpose of this article is to identify issues affecting the clinical supervision of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental healthcare workforce, and propose alternative supervision models. Participatory Action Research (PAR) was the primary methodology used to elicit and analyze the reflections of five Aboriginal counselors. The data highlighted a number of inadequacies with current practices that typically lead to high levels of stress and burnout. We recommend the implementation of alternative supervision models including the use of cultural supervisors, and dual supervisors; and accessibility to consultation, supervision, and communities of practice for remote workers through modern technologies.
