Carnes R (2015)

Applying a We Al-Li Educaring framework to address histories of violence with Aboriginal women.

Geelong, Vic: Centre for Rural Regional Law and Justice

This report is an evaluation of a 20-day training program run by We Al-li for Aboriginal women at the Alice Springs Correction Centre (ASCC) in September 2015. The Educaring program was contracted by the Kunga family violence program to address violence in the context of intergenerational violence with the aim of diverting a return to violence as the norm upon exit from the justice system.

The program was evaluated by Dr Roslyn Carnes of Deakin University School of Law and this report includes recommendations and provides an economic evaluation of the program.

The Family Business: improving the understanding and treatment of post traumatic stress disorder among incarcerated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

Melbourne: beyondblue

This report presents the findings from the Family wellbeing research program. The research examined post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among Aboriginal and Torres Strait women in custody, the extend of PTSD among this population and its impact on the women's mental health and wellbeing. Recommendations for the identification and treatment of PTSD in custodial settings are also presented.

Factors contributing to PTSD for this group of women, included in this report, were:

  • trauma
  • suicide
  • culture
  • transition into community.

The report was produced by the Queensland Forensic Mental Health Service with funding from beyondblue.
