What does a nation that sees, hears and knows – that recognises – all of its peoples look like?
Taking the day after recognition as a possible starting or end point, this symposium will journey through the unrecognised trails of trauma and shine a light on breakthroughs to achieve recognition, change minds and save lives.
Who will benefit from attending?
- Aboriginal people and representatives from Aboriginal organisations
- Psychoanalytic psychotherapists, psychoanalysts, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, counsellors and mental health practitioners
- Thought leaders, practitioners and advocates from the legal, justice, political and welfare system
- Service providers working to break cycles of trauma and violence
- All Australians seeking to develop mutual understanding and recognition for a reconciled Australia.
What you can contribute and take away from this event:
- Insights from Aboriginal leaders
- Analysis of yesterday’s policy failures
- Greater understandings of why Aboriginal people are in crisis – from both sides of the racial divide
- Clear insights into practical, psychological approaches that are making a real difference to the lives of Aboriginal people
- Clarity around practical recognition – what it looks like and how to get there
- Dreamings of tomorrow
