Marumali is holding a two day workshop on 17-18 March 2014 in Melbourne for non-Aboriginal service providers who work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander survivors of Australia's removal policies.

Marumali works toward increasing quality support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander survivors, and workshops have been designed by Lorraine Peeters, an Aboriginal survivor of past removal policies.

This two day workshop examines some of the unique social and emotional issues that are faced by survivors of removal policy and provides insight into the Marumali Journey of Healing. The workshop will also discuss the role of non-Aboriginal service providers in assisting survivors through their healing journey.

Past training workshops have been attended by:

  • Social & Emotional Wellbeing workers - including Link Up caseworkers, BTH Counsellors and Alcohol & Other Drug workers
  • Aboriginal Health Workers
  • Mental Health workers
  • Administrative officers & management personnel
  • Policy advisors/developers

Registrations for this workshop close Monday 17 February 2014.
