Sydney: NSW Government

This report highlights the issues raised from the Healing forum held in New South Wales (NSW) in July 2014. The Healing forum brought together more than 200 delegates, representing 68 organisations, as well as Aboriginal leaders, to share experience and understanding of trauma and healing in NSW Aboriginal communities.

The discussions from the forum were focused around four themes outlined in this report:

  • Aboriginal perspectives on healing
  • Why healing is needed?- issues that impact on healing
  • strategies that support healing
  • the role for government in healing.
