Disrupting & Reducing Family Violence Against First Nations Women & Children

In partnership with AFLSQ and WWLS

Elevating voice & choice for First Nations women experiencing violence

Research has shown us that First Nations women are 32 times more likely to be hospitalised and 11 times more likely to die from assault than non-Indigenous women.

Family violence is a significant contributor to increasing rates of First Nations women in incarceration and a leading cause of the removal of First Nations children into out-of-home care. An inclusive, accessible, and culturally-secure approach is required if statistics are to be reduced by 50% by 2031.

Through storytelling, reflection, and connection, this conference will elevate the voice and choice of First Nations women, share insight into working in culturally appropriate and holistic ways, and explore innovative approaches that bring lasting change and disrupt the cycle of violence in First Nations communities.

From Coal to Gold: How to understand trauma for First Nations People & enable culturally safe practice

Overview

Trauma in the Aboriginal Community can be deep-rooted and complex. It can arise from the trauma of dispossession and Stolen Generations to the individual trauma that violence stamps on the brain’s function. If not arrested, understood, and healed, it can continue to impact generation after generation. Culturally safe, trauma-informed approaches are essential for healing.

Attend this workshop to learn, connect, and be empowered about intergenerational trauma in the Aboriginal community, as well as how to recognise and respond to trauma in a culturally safe and appropriate way.

Attend & Learn

  • Learn from lived experiences to understand trauma for First Nations people following historical lines
  • Discern how trauma unfolds, from first contact to the impact of removal practices through to learned community and family violence
  • Understand the connection between trauma and violence
  • Discover the importance of and impact of whole-of-community healing
  • Support our journey to love, respect and honour through community healing
