A story of two-way learning and healing
/

Nancy Jeffrey is a proud Woolwonga women from the Northern Territory who works for the Healing Foundation as a portfolio lead in Darwin. Nancy’s role within the Healing Foundation is to work with Community and organisations to co-design what healing looks like and implement strategies that support healing from a bottom-up approach. One of the key messages Nancy talks about is the importance of understanding diversity in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Nancy also provides examples for practitioners of how two-way learning has supported practitioners in their engagements and support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families.

In this episode you will learn about: 

  • the diverse experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples (5.00)
  • the ongoing experience of grief and loss faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities (08:00)
  • the strength and resilience within communities (17:00); and
  • practices that support two-way learning and healing (22:36).

The preferred terminology used by Emerging Minds in our resources is Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, as guided by our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social and Emotional Wellbeing National Consultancy Group.
