My Meeting Place: Re-arming ourselves with cultural knowledge, spirituality and community connectedness by Vanessa Davis

This video demonstrates the integration of Aboriginal Art with Narrative Practices to create culturally appropriate counselling for Aboriginal practitioners when working with Aboriginal children and young people. Thus creating indigenised therapeutic work, which contributes to the de-colonisation of Aboriginal people. Here Vanessa will also offer a step-by-step explanation of how she has used ‘My Meeting Place’ in a one-on-one counselling session, to create and guide narrative conversations.

Vanessa is an Aboriginal woman from Tennant Creek, Northern Territory Australia. Currently living in Brisbane and working as a Social and Emotional Wellbeing Counsellor with Aboriginal children and young women in the Brisbane Region.
