Aboriginal Story: The Kangaroo and the Porpoise

This story was told by Agnes Lippo from the Aboriginal community of Belyuen in the Northern Territory, where people from the Larrakia and Waigite language groups live. The illustrations in this book are adapted from paintings of the story done by the children at Belyuen School. Bill Turner, Head Teacher at Belyuen School in 1987, said The Kangaroo and the Porpoise is one of the many stories from the very small Aboriginal community of Belyuen. We hope publishing these stories will enable us to buy materials for the school. We want to continue to document the culture of the people at Belyuen.'

    Living with ANT's (Automatic Negative Thoughts)

    by Sally-Anne McCormack

    ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts) are annoying creatures that trouble everyone! Sally-Anne refers to the analogy of the ANTs – everyone gets them, they are hard to get rid of, and we often don’t notice them until there is a huge pile of black pests hiding all of the good things (thoughts) underneath them. The pages of *Living with ANTs* illustrate the analogy by comparing the actions of ‘ants in your home’ on the left hand page with the ‘ANTs in your head’ on the opposing page. Living with ANT’s...
