CASSE Australia – Creating A Safe Supportive Environment

Our Vision

A reconciled Australia, with a two-way cultural heritage, living and dreaming together.

Our Mission

Changing minds and saving lives by using psychoanalytic approaches to violence, trauma and healing.

Our Core Work

By changing minds and spirit, we are saving lives.

It is this simple belief which guides our work every day.

Our annual dreams

To take 60-100 youth per year on cultural healing Shields For Living,Tools for Life camps to make traditional tools every year.

To hold day cultural healing camps for the town at-risk youth a day a week at our Desert Knowledge site.

To be in Youth Detention Alice Springs one day a week to deliver traditional tool making.

What we deliver

Through our programs and resources we create spaces for intercultural exchange and understanding.
CASSE respectfully acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the lands on which we meet and work.

CULTURAL CAMPS AND TRADITIONAL TOOL MAKING

The Men’s Tjilirra Movement has partnered CASSE with Aboriginal communities in Haasts Bluff (Ikuntji), Mt Liebig (Amunturrngu), Kintore (Walungurru), Papunya (Warumpi) and Kiwirrkurra in Australia’s central western desert region. CASSE’s ‘Shields for Living, Tools for Life’ program delivers cultural camps for high-risk youth in Alice Springs at Desert Knowledge Australia, Willowra, Santa Teresa, Snow Bore, Titjikala, Tempe Downs, Lajamanu, Finke, Mutitjulu and Imanpa.

Pamela Nathan is grateful to have the work of CASSE and the ‘youth crisis’ be part of the international discourse at the annual conference of the Centre for the Resolution of Intractable Conflict (CRIC). The program looks very rich in its coverage of international issues. Here is the link to more information: cric-oxford.org/2021/08/26/cric-conference-2021-beyond-covid-solidarity-or-fragmentation/

Pamela will speak about the Indigenous youth in the Northern Territory justice system and CASSE Australia's dual cultural and therapeutic program. The work is at the epicentre of anger, concern, and politics in Central Australia and this epicentre has been named 'the youth crisis'. It is a journey of feeling the heat, on a rollercoaster ride, in a landscape of monstrous trauma where CASSE attempts to work two-way. Learn more about CASSE's dual cultural and therapeutic program here: www.casse.org.au/what-we-deliver/current-programs/shields-for-living-tools-for-life/

THANK YOU TO OUR AMAZING SUPPORTERS AND COLLABORATORS

CASSE provides one solution.A solution that takes youth from custody to country. #ShieldsforLivingToolsforLife. These youth on camp feel alive and real! The youth tell us they feel HAPPY, PROUD, SAFE and STRONG on our country camps. They tell new stories. smh.com.au/politics/feder…
