To overcome some of these barriers, service providers need to:
- Treat Aboriginal people with respect
- Listen carefully to what an Aboriginal woman is telling you and respond to her needs
- Be aware that Aboriginal women may prefer to talk to an Aboriginal worker and access information from an Aboriginal specific service. Sometimes they may also prefer not to.
- Offer your client the choice.
