Abstract

In partnership with the Healing Foundation, these resources have been developed to improve social and emotional wellbeing outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

The resources will help families and children reconnect to cultures while weaving back in the knowledge and protective factors that have kept First Nations peoples healthy and strong for more than 60,000 years.

This is the first time a holistic approach has brought together best practice child development theory and First Nations knowledge systems to better understand parenting through a trauma-aware, healing-informed lens.

This e-learning course and accompanying fact sheets have been developed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families. This includes those practitioners working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled or mainstream services, and those working in private practice.

The animation shown via the link to the Emerging Minds webpage for this topic is for all service providers wanting to gain a better understanding of the impacts of intergenerational trauma and reframing the narrative towards intergenerational healing.
