Dave finds out more about The Healing Foundation with CEO Fiona Petersen on the eve of Australia Day.
The Healing Foundation is a national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisation that partners with communities to address the ongoing trauma caused by actions like the forced removal of children from their families. Our work helps people create a different future by:
• generating new research and resources to establish an evidence base for healing and best-practice strategies and build support for more effective policy and frameworks
• building leadership and capacity in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and
• strengthening the healing workforce by providing training materials and support
• conducting strategic communication with stakeholders about the impact of trauma and Intergenerational Trauma on Stolen Generations survivors and their descendants, and the importance of healing in addressing a wide range of health and social issues.
