Working for a better future and outcomes for our children

The Healing Foundation “Young People and Healing Resources”

The Healing Foundation has recently released resources on supporting healing for young people.

TRAUMA AND HEALING TIMELINE

YOUNG PEOPLE FACTSHEET

The resources are designed to support both our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce and our non-Indigenous workforce to have the tools and resources to support quality healing practice.

The Healing Foundation encourages Child Protection, Juvenile Justice and Education Departments to utilise the resources/material in staff training.

Alongside the attached fact sheets, the Healing Foundation also released an animation video that is aimed at assisting the workforce and community to understand the concept of Intergenerational trauma.

The animation video is supported by a video from Professor Helen Milroy – a leading Aboriginal child and family Psychiatrist, to assist people to understand the child and family implications of trauma and how we can support healing.

Professor Milroy has a strong and supportive message about how everybody can do something, and the facts sheets are designed to assist workers to have the tools to act.
