Trauma Informed Approaches to Aboriginal Wellbeing
Professional Development Series
Do you support Indigenous people and communities impacted by trauma?
While the impact of trauma is still under recognised in provision of mental health services, Aboriginal people have been using a trauma informed approach in response to the healing needs of Indigenous families and communities for nearly twenty years.
This training is designed, developed and delivered by Aboriginal people for workers in the mental health or community service sectors who support Aboriginal people impacted by trauma. This includes generational trauma, family violence, sexual assault, alcohol or drug problems and mental distress.
Created by the We Al-li program, this workshop is a celebration of life - a process of healing sharing and regeneration - which is equally relevant to Indigenous and non-Indigenous workers.
