Trauma-informed services and trauma-specific care for Indigenous Australian children
The trauma of historical events associated with colonisation of Indigenous land can pass to children (inter-generational trauma). Even if protected from the traumatic life experiences of family, some Indigenous children, like non-Indigenous children, directly experience trauma through exposure to an accident, family violence and abuse. Although the effects of childhood trauma can be severe and long lasting, recovery can be mediated by appropriate interventions.
The Centre is committed to building cross-sector relationships and has a collective approach to health and social care. Learn about our Partners.
