What’s Up with My Mob? Understanding the Impact of Transgenerational Trauma on Aboriginal Peoples

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This workshop aims to challenge and test past perceptions of Aboriginal Peoples and their culture and will encourage participants to develop a more respectful understanding of Aboriginal clients, work mates and society in general.

This workshop will address cultural realities in order to improve service delivery to Aboriginal clients and co-workers. The consolidated trauma of transgenerational trauma, lateral violence and cultural loads impact on all Aboriginal families and may affect their ability to improve outcomes in their own lives. The effects of consolidated trauma influences the way in which Aboriginal Peoples perceive services and impacts on the way in which we provide service to Aboriginal families.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the three major issues which impact on Aboriginal Peoples of today:

1. Transgenerational Trauma
2. Lateral Violence
3. Cultural Loads

  • Identify and consider the actual and potential impacts of these issues upon Aboriginal Peoples
  • Develop the skills for managing clients and families who are affected by these issues
  • Learn about available resources to better provide services to Aboriginal clients and families
