Keynote Speaking – Rosemary Wanganeen

“Prevention is always better than a cure!”

Aboriginal Griefologist, Rosemary Wanganeen, is a sought-after keynote presenter and nationally and internationally renowned expert in the new-found field of Griefology. She asks: “Would you like to know what Griefology is and how it transformed ‘her’ inter-generational Aboriginal disadvantage into ‘her’ Aboriginal prosperity?”

Her keynote address will answer this very question. She will present the Seven Phases to Integrating Loss and Grief© framework that discovered Griefology as a decolonising framework which put her on the path and sustained ‘her’ Aboriginal prosperity!

With her 5-years of intuitive research as an Aboriginal methodology and approaching 30-years of ‘testing’ Griefology, her keynote address will ‘talk to’ her research findings as an evidence-based case-study that will demonstrate its ability to transform, sustain and prevent inter-generational Aboriginal disadvantage, for all!

Similarly, it has proven to be culturally appropriate, relevant, and sensitive to all Peoples as Griefology has proven loss and grief is a human experience that doesn’t discriminate!

The philosophy of Griefology?  It’s a ‘soft-landing’ where grief meets inspiration.
