Best Practice Models and Tools for Aboriginal Mental Health
|Presenters||Roslyn Snyder and Shaun Nannup|
|Description||These two simple, integrated, inclusive and culturally appropriate tools, the map and compass have been used in best practice mental health programs for Aboriginal people and young people. Independent evaluations have found that these tools work. Used with individuals, families and communities to assess and treat clinical disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, eating disorders, alcohol, drug, abuse, trauma and suicidal tendencies etc. The map and compass are tools derived from quantum chaotic consciousness, QCC a coherent theory based on scientific principles of chaos and laws of quantum physics applied to the human mind (Snyder, 2008). The 7 day training program teaches simple science based, integrated holistic treatment of mental health conditions, especially with difficult to engage clients or groups.
