The CASSE Team was delighted to receive a letter from Adam Giles, the NT Chief Minister, endorsing the booklets published by CASSE’s Aboriginal Australian Relations Program – ‘Saving Lives’ and ‘What? Why? How?’.
The first booklet, ‘Saving Lives‘, introduces CASSE and shows how CASSE might work with trauma and violence by telling the stories of ‘Giorgio’ and ‘Samuel’. It provides some human understandings of difficult and often stigmatising problems, with the hope of leading to kurunna mwarre for all.
‘What?, Why? How?‘, the second booklet, is meant for Aboriginal people as individuals, in families and communities. It tells some of the Aboriginal stories told to CASSE by Aboriginal people about the ‘problem life’ and how to change it, and CASSE has added its way of thinking to the story. NT Chief Minister Adam Giles said, “The goals you’ve set out under ‘What we can achieve’ in ‘What? Why?How?’ point the way to success”.
