    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description


    The workshop draws on lived experience, indigenous knowledge systems, postcolonial theory, narrative therapy, racial and trauma theory.

    This course is suitable for first nations allies, policy makers, managers, boards, executives, psychologists, educators, health, social work, community services and justice services staff.

    This work will strengthen participants:
    - knowledge and awareness of colonising processes and how they work.
    - skills to identify the roles we play and how each of us can counter these processes, and;
    - capacity to act to influence change to decolonise ourselves, the systems and structures that we live and work within.

    About your facilitator:
    Rob Patton brings significant insights into the experience of what it’s like to live as a colonised person based on his own lived experience and 40 years of working alongside indigenous communities. Rob is a social worker by training and has a background in community development, family and psychodynamic therapy.
    Rob has developed this series of workshops to raise awareness of the mechanisms and forces that oppress and subjugate so many in contemporary settings today. Rob has directly witnessed the multiple impacts that a lack of knowledge, skills and consideration of colonialism in everyday life, in health and other services has on people. He brings first hand insight into how to decolonise and bring about change.
