How to Use the Seven Phases to Integrating Loss & Grief to Enhance Bi-Cultural Awareness, Safety & Inclusion to Enable Aboriginal People to Access Mainstream Services

The aim of the workshops is two-pronged:

  1. It imparts awareness, knowledge and skills so non-Aboriginal service providers gain a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the impact of Ancestral losses, Australian history and how they forged a pathway to what is commonly referred to as contemporary ‘Aboriginal disadvantage’. This reduces the time and the emotional effort it takes many Aboriginal service providers to ‘educate’ many non-Aboriginal service providers and in so doing all in the workplace can move forward to provide a culturally safe service and workplace.
  2. To ‘up-skill’ Aboriginal service providers to respond calmly and assertively when appropriate. It imparts awareness, knowledge and skills that could provide responses to respectful or adversarial queries, questions and comment pertaining to Ancestral losses, Australian history, Aboriginal culture and what is commonly referred to as contemporary ‘Aboriginal disadvantage’.
  3. Similarly, to ‘up-skill’ non-Aboriginal service providers to respond calmly and assertively when appropriately for the same or similar reasons as their Aboriginal counterparts.

How to Use Loss & Grief to Enhance Bi-Cultural Awareness, Safety & Inclusion for Indigenous People to Access Mainstream Services.

These two programs are adaptable to deliver to Service Providers to go beyond awareness to include strategies for the service provider to create safety for Indigenous people, so Indigenous people know they are not just included but are welcomed into mainstream services.

The how to Use Loss & Grief to Enhance Bi-Cultural Awareness, Safety & Inclusion for Indigenous People to Access Mainstream Services can also be adapted to provide programs for the following.

  • Building Aboriginal Prosperity;
  • Youth for Life-Skills;
  • Aboriginal Women in Leadership programs.

Aboriginal Loss, Grief and Mental Health

Rosemary’s unique model the Seven Phases to Integrating Loss & Grief© offers an alternative to ‘higher’ education in the form of a ‘deeper’ education.  As a non-academic, her academic credentials have been outstanding (p4).

Service providers will learn from an expert living case study how to maintain good mental health through the development of the innate human ‘intuitive intelligence’ in the context of Loss & Grief.

Unravelling the labyrinth of her research, methodologies and theories Rosemary’s’ Seven Phases will also present practical grief strategies to avert mental illnesses throughout Aboriginal Communities.

In partnership with Relationship Australia (SA), we have mapped the Seven Phases© model to the following three nationally recognized competencies from Certificate IV in Community Development (CHC40808):

 

  • CHCCS416B – Assess and provide services for clients with complex needs
  • CHCCD413E – Work within specific communities
  • HLTHIR404D – Work effectively with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people

 

To achieve cultural competencies when working with Indigenous people, this training has been specifically developed and documented to describe how these three competencies can be culturally adapted successfully when aspiring to support Indigenous prosperity, across Australia.

TESTIMONIALS

  • For years I have been attending workshops of many descriptions. The workshop with Rosemary on loss and grief was one of the most profound and illuminating I have ever attended. The insights I gained and feelings experienced for the Loss and Grief of our indigenous communities were a shock on the day and will remain with me for life.... if only all Cultures (not just white Australians) could experience the enlightening, healing wisdom of this workshop. I am so grateful to have been a part of the day.
