We Al-li training workshops

Trauma Training Workshops

Our training workshops offer a complete package of multi-skilling participants to effectively meet the demands of working with communities today. Our educational approach provides participants the personal support needed while developing strong theory to practice professional skills.

The programs offered by We Al-li are unique in that they are informed by the stories of Aboriginal Australians and utilise traditional Indigenous healing work combined with a western trauma informed and trauma specific approach to individual, family and community recovery.

Our programs can be run as single workshops or run consecutively up to three modules at a time. Call us now to find out how we can support your organisation with a new way to grow.

This approach has five important components; It grows leadership, is based on transformational learning, is skills based, is layered with innovation and it is grounded in ethics and human rights.

About these courses

We Al-li community and workplace workshops are an Indigenous therapeutic response to individual, family and community pain that many people carry as part of their life experience. For Aboriginal peoples this pain is more specifically defined as the traumatic impacts of the multiple intergenerational experiences of colonisation resulting in ill-health, individual, family and community dysfunction (dys – Latin from the Greek dus meaning painful or difficult functioning). We Al-li specifically meets this need through tailored workshops that are trauma informed in their design and trauma specific in their delivery.

This training provides key approaches to setting up and maintaining trauma-informed organisational structures. Becoming trauma-informed allows us to deeply consider policy development and trauma specific work practice and service care strategies to more realistically meet the needs of affected people and communities.

Our workshops are built on the principles of integrating Indigenous cultural processes of education, conflict management, and personal/social healing with Eastern and Western therapeutic skills for trauma recovery within an action based experiential learning practice.
