A training program and resources have been developed and guided by the Wellness Dreaming Advisory Group consisting of predominantly Aboriginal people. The program encourages community volunteers and workers from organisations invested in the holistic wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to use strength-based approaches when working clients and community. After completing two days of training Wellness Dreaming Messengers are equipped with skills and resources to facilitate Dreaming Circles, strength based conversations in culturally safe and supported community settings, that lead to community led action to improve wellbeing. t.
