Enhancing resilience in indigenous people: The integration of individual, family and community interventions

Clarke, Colleen, Harnett, Paul, Atkinson, Judy, & Shochet, Ian M. (1999) Enhancing resilience in indigenous people: The integration of individual, family and community interventions. Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal, 23, pp. 6-10.


This paper describes a number of interventions being developed to address the emotional, social and behavioural problems experienced by Aboriginal people in Australia. These are: the We-Al-Li program to help people deal with the impact of transgenerational trauma; and the RAP Indigenous Parenting Program. It is argued that the emotional well being of indigenous people will be enhanced through the integration of interventions targeting the individual, family and community.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
