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 dreaming breakthroughs to achieve recognition, change minds and save lives.

The invisible heart of Australia is lacerated by the racial divide, which blankets silent suffering and bleeding trauma trails.  But remembrance, revival and resilience are reclaiming the ancestral lands, generating tomorrows.

Join CASSE for a symposium that:

  • provides a forum for important thinkers from Central Australia to share their knowledge and work with some of Australia’s key Indigenous, political and cultural leaders.

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
