Growing our children up strong and deadly : healing for children and young people

Abstract

It is becoming increasingly apparent that the trauma experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people by past government policies must be addressed if the resulting negative behaviours are to be circumvented (for example, alcohol and other drug misuse, criminal behaviour). Recognising the importance of healing in the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people, this paper reports on the work of the Healing Foundation in creating a healing environment for the younger generation. This paper also includes a discussion on intergenerational trauma, and the emerging evidence of what works in addressing trauma in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population.
