CRAIG SAN ROQUE
An OLDER VOICE – Things I heard in Warlpiri Country
This session, on experiences of listening in ‘crossover spaces’, draws upon Freud’s notion of unconscious intensities arising in relationships. I begin by acknowledging specific Central Australian Indigenous men/women who worked to maintain mutually beneficial good order between ‘black and white’ (kardia and yapa). I then track personal psychological moments revealing challenges, mistakes and subliminal illuminations arising through attentive listening within Warlpiri relations.
Opening up the story: From soul murder to soul making on ancestral lands
I draw on the psychoanalytic work of Creating A Safe Supportive Environment, CASSE, and the voices of the youth in Central Australia. I show how CASSE attempts to transform soul murder into soul making on ancestral lands. I use the work of Winnicott, Williams & Ogden who have written about the essence of authenticity, which is the inviolate homeland for the sacred.

VOICES IN LAW
This session brings to your attention intercultural responsibility, accountability and the uses of law and culture. Three speakers, personally involved in such matters reflect upon social obligation, cultural morality, gender relations, care for country, crime and settlement – as understood from Australian and Indigenous law perspectives.Confusions in truth, right conduct, basic trust and law are revealed in the current Yuendumu/ Walker Coronial Inquiry. Such confusion has psychological consequences. The case strikes at the heart. In Voices in Law we acknowledge intercultural unconscious intensities arising in ‘black/white’ relations, bringing to light passions, histories, solutions and potentials.
