Working with First Nations people in a trauma and healing informed way

 Registration is closed for this event
Understanding the impact of trauma enables service providers to deliver trauma and healing integrated care for First Nations clients.

This workshop, delivered by First Nations organisation, We al-li, begins to unpack the impact of history on First Nations peoples’ wellbeing, by examining constructs of collective, historical, complex, developmental, and generational trauma evident in many First Nations (and other) communities. 

The workshop will help you develop the skills to create culturally safe healing environments and work toward becoming a culturally safe professional. You will gain an understanding of the impacts of trauma and vicarious trauma and learn how to build safe relationships that promote recovery and healing for clients.

We Al-li workshops are deeply embedded in Indigenous pedagogy and use the tradition of Dadirri (inner deep listening and quiet still awareness) gifted by Aunty Miriam Ungunmerr Baumann, to support the development of a Culturally Informed Trauma Integrated Healing Approach (CITHA).

Developed by Professors Judy Atkinson and Carlie Atkinson through decades of working with community, this healing approach is articulated within an academic research framework.
The workshop is designed for First Nations people working in the community sector or non-Aboriginal people working with First Nations communities. This is the first of two workshops. To gain the full benefit we strongly encourage you to attend both workshops.
