Working With Aboriginal People

Would you like to be able to yarn about relationships and sexual health with young Aboriginal people?

SHQ delivers a range of relationships and sexual health education and training programs for Aboriginal young people, Aboriginal community members and professionals, and other professionals working with Aboriginal people.

SHQ’s Mooditj program for young Aboriginal people aged 10-14 years is very popular and highly regarded. The original Mooditj was a relationships and sexual health education program developed in collaboration with Aboriginal people from across WA over a 15 year period. Recently Mooditj has been extended in response to community feedback.

Mooditj is now a comprehensive 3-part resilience, relationships and sexual health education program. It helps young Aboriginal people be strong in themselves and make positive and informed choices about their wellbeing and relationships. Please see the Mooditj program outline for more information about Mooditj.

Mooditj is designed to be run by local community people working in pairs. At least one of the community leaders should be Aboriginal. People who want to use the Mooditj program need to attend Mooditj Leader Training. 

SHQ also delivers other courses to help increase people’s confidence and knowledge to yarn with young Aboriginal people about relationships and sexual health. All our training is very practical, hands on and fun. We aim to provide culturally secure training, and we value the experience that all participants bring.
