Transforming Indigenous Justice Outcomes

Forging robust pathways in prevention, diversion & collaboration

Exploring comprehensive approaches to breaking the cycle of incarceration

Focusing on prevention, intervention, diversion, and recovery, the Transforming Indigenous Justice Conference will inform and enable knowledge sharing on critical topics including justice reinvestment, empowering communities, alternatives to remand and incarceration, and preventing continuing harm to young people.

Through storytelling, reflection, and connection, this conference will elevate the voice and choice of First Nations women, children & men. Approaches will be explored that address the causes and drivers of contact with the criminal justice system as well as projects that have embedded meaningful outcomes.

The discussion will tackle the root causes leading to interactions with the criminal justice system and shine a spotlight on successful programs that have delivered place-based community-driven alternatives to detention.

How to use a 7-step process for trauma recovery

This workshop provides a chance to engage with healing circle work and understand how the Gan’na Healing Model supports transformation from intergenerational trauma. In his work, Lukas applies current research in the neurobiology of trauma, coupled with traditional Indigenous cultural ways of healing and processing trauma.

It is a safe space to share stories, gain knowledge, and ultimately learn how to support better men, women, and youths with healing from both their interactions with the criminal justice system and from the complex and intergenerational trauma they carry.

Attend & learn

  •  An understanding of the neurobiology of trauma
  • How to unpack our history and be heard
  • Tips on how to create safe spaces and places
  •   Approaches to building belonging and connection
  •  An introduction to a process for trauma recovery and healing intergenerational trauma

How to improve early diagnosis & better health outcomes for youths with FASD

Adverse long-term outcomes for Indigenous children living with FASD are improved by early diagnosis, intervention, and support for families. Rates of FASD are high in some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. People with FASD have high rates of mental illness, substance use, and cognitive disabilities and are at high risk of coming into contact with the criminal justice system in early life. 

This workshop will provide insight and guidance around how we can improve professionals’ knowledge and skills to enable early diagnosis and better health outcomes for First Nations children and young people with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).

Attend & learn

  • The key diagnostic features of FASD and its associated behavioural, developmental, learning, and health problems
  • How to recognise groups at high risk of FASD
  • The current approach to screening and diagnosis in communities, health services, and the justice system 
  • How to advocate for pre-trial screening for children who have come into contact with the justice system
  • Approaches and processes for multi-disciplinary assessment including cognitive testing for children before they enter detention
