pin icon Little Bay, Sydney

AH&MRC have engaged Rosemary Wanganeen, Aboriginal Griefologist, Counsellor and Consultant to deliver her 3-day face-to-face workshop. As a Griefologist she brings over 30-years of personal and professional experiences.

In this workshop, Rosemary theorizes that inter-generational suppressed unresolved grief has compounded and complicated contemporary losses and suppressed unresolved grief.

This unique workshop will introduce the Seven Phases to Integrating Loss & Grief as a ‘loss and grief trauma informed model’. It is a ‘holistic approach’ and is culturally safe and sensitive to the needs of the Aboriginal community. In doing so, has greater opportunity to transform Aboriginal disadvantage and provide a pathway towards Aboriginal prosperity.

AH&MRC will cover the cost of:

  • The Workshop
  • 3 nights’ accommodation (night before and check out on last day of the workshop)
  • Catering during workshop hours

For further information contact Marina Wise (MWise@ahmrc.org.au).

This event has been created for Palliative Care Workers. There is very limited numbers so register now.

The workshop will help workers to understand their clients and assist them in managing grief and loss in Palliative Care.
