The assimilation policy in Australia’s history has left deep scars, the intergenerational trauma felt by Firsts Nations people of the stolen generation is well documented, with lasting implications, including family violence, substance abuse,  and the over representation of children in out-of-home care. What is not recognised in these statistics, are the stories of resilience and healing. In this episode, Darryl shares his experience not only with the adversity but also the things that have helped him heal. 

In this episode you will learn: 

  • The importance of connections, to family country and community 
  • The effects past policy has on identity for Firsts Nations Peoples 
  • The importance of Men’s programs, through his healing journey 
     
  • A example of the strength and resilience through adversity
