Your Facilitator - Rosemary Wanganeen
You will learn from a facilitator who brings 30 years of personal and professional experience with loss and grief from an Aboriginal perspective. Grounded in her lived experience your facilitator will apply it as a 'case study'. Rosemary will present the Seven Phases to Integrating Loss & Grief model as the foundation to creating and maintaining good mental health and in so doing, hypothesizes loss and grief can be a prevention to suicide.
The Seven Phases is a unique model offering a deep and meaningful learning opportunity. The 'Seven Phases is an exploration of Rosemary's research, methodologies and theories and presents practical grief strategies to avert the escalation into mental illnesses and suicide.
The workshop is designed for anyone with an interest in gaining proven strategies to address inter-generational suppressed, unresolved loss and grief. Using the Seven Phases Rosemary will show how these forces left unaddressed can forge a pathway into mild, medium and severe mental illnesses.
It will also impart basic but valuable strategies to inspire the service provider to greater confidence when working within local Aboriginal communities.
