This workshop aspires to encourage service providers to welcome the intellectual information and the emotional experiences to create a safer environment to enable an Aboriginal individual to experience inclusion across mainstream services!

Rosemary will take you on a journey from ancient history through to contemporary challenges to give participants an understanding of how grief fear is past across and down the generations (inter-generation), the psychological impact from Policies, Practices & Procedures and Inter-generational myths, misconceptions, stereo-typical views.

She will also pose some of the following questions:
– What are losses: tangible and intangible losses?
– What are grief emotions?
– What is grief discounting?
– What are grief triggers?
– How to render racism powerless
– What is cultural safety for Aboriginal people?
