In this 2-day workshop you will increase your knowledge of the impact of trauma on Aboriginal children, families and communities, and build your ability to foster relationships and partnerships.

This workshop aligns with the FaCS Targetted Earlier Intervention priority of increasing and improving access to culturally safe services for ATSI families and communities.


Day 1: Trauma Informed work with Aboriginal families

*Increased knowledge and understanding of how Aboriginal peoples’ experiences of trauma impacts on daily life.

*Increased confidence to apply acknowledgement of this trauma and oppression to your work with Aboriginal people through trauma informed practice.

*This workshop can be challenging but very rewarding in building your understanding and confidence when working with Aboriginal families and communities in your local area.
