Towards de-colonised practice: using narrative practice to develop storybooks and documents by Grace Drahm

Grace’s discussion focuses on the different maps of narrative practice that she has utilised to support Aboriginal young people and their families to develop storybooks and therapeutic documents which centre and honour their Aboriginal worldviews.


Grace Drahm is a Social Worker who has worked in Remote Aboriginal Communities in Cape York for nearly a decade in supporting mental health and wellbeing. As a non-Aboriginal woman, Grace is working towards a de-colonised practice that assists her to engage in practice as political action, which challenges the dominant ideology of a Western system, and which tries to ensure that she is not perpetuating colonisation, but rather seeking to honour the stories that people tell.
