Thursday 12 March was a unique live Webinar event ‘Trauma and Aboriginal Clients” to begin a needed conversation on EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) as a type of trauma treatment that may – or may not – be relevant for treating the many and multiple Trauma experiences which Aboriginal clients may be struggling with.
Highlights of the Webinar included Kelleigh Ryan, descendant of the Kabi Kabi people and Indigenous Psychologist, presenting a moving and enriching context of these multiple Trauma experiences – for example, Collective Trauma, Intergenerational Trauma, Individual Trauma.
Hoping to provide a link to the recording and resources in the next few weeks. Thank you to our excellent speakers: Kelleigh Ryan, Dr Chris Lee and Dr Gary Fulcher. Thank you to the APS EMDR and Psychology Special Interest Group for your support.
I am privileged to have facilitated this outstanding event.
