Training available to develop Culturally Responsive Trauma Informed Practice

First Nations communities have endured historical challenges including colonisation, dispossession, interruption of culture and intergenerational trauma. The cumulative impacts of these traumas are evident in the health and well-being indicators of First Nations people.

It is vital that those working in and with First Nations communities undertake appropriate training in order to work in a culturally responsive manner mindful of the ongoing impacts of intergenerational trauma.

Yamurrah is a Central Coast-based collective that offers competency-based training, consultancy and a range of services covering topics of vital importance to workers engaging with First Nations people. They are offering two-day training courses in Culturally Responsive Trauma Informed Practice (CRTIP) for both Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander People and non-Aboriginal workers.

The training provides a foundation for working within a culturally responsive trauma informed framework and includes neurobiology, Aboriginal worldviews, trauma informed care and worker wellbeing. The training courses are suitable for workers in a wide range of health and welfare roles, in particular those supporting Aboriginal people and communities who have been impacted by trauma or who are responding to disclosures.

Courses are available in a number of locations including the Central Coast and Moree. For more information including training locations and dates refer to the Yamurrah training booklet.
