Yarning Circle 1: Solid and Deadly Families

1 May 2023

The first yarning circle uses the social emotional wellbeing model as a way of thinking about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, wellbeing, development and disability. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health is viewed as a holistic concept that encompasses the importance of connection to physical and emotional health, land, culture, family, spirituality, and ancestry. 

Parents and carers take a holistic view of their jarjum and celebrate all the things they CAN do, rather than worrying about concerns that needs to be ‘fixed’. We will also be yarning about telling your child’s story, focusing on their strengths and connections and what is important in their life.
