This approx. 1hr CBT@Home webinar was recorded in October 2020.


During this webinar Michelle will explore Indigenous experiences of trauma, highlight the resilience of this population, and discuss the intersection between racism and trauma. Trauma Informed Care will be the primary approach recommended, within a Social and Emotional Wellbeing framework.


Michelle will present the Trauma Informed Care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people resources developed by her workplace under the ‘Way Forward: An Indigenous approach to Wellbeing’ project team. Along with looking at racism and how it can affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as a form of ‘racial trauma’.

The aim of the presentation is to improve the viewer’s understanding and engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It will also offer the opportunity to explore own personal biases regarding race/culture.


Key learning objectives:

  • Education about types of traumas experienced by Australia’s Indigenous people.
  • Exploring how racism intersects with trauma for this population.
  • Suggestions for how to approach this issue.
