Providing social work and community work services in rural, remote and mining communities often involves providing limited visiting services by professionals who drive or fly in to communities on either a regular or irregular basis. How to develop trusting relationships with such communities and also provide valued services can be a challenge. Strategies to survive and thrive professionally in this context are identified and discussed. Overcoming professional isolation, burnout and some hints on self care are also detailed.
