    3 day WORKSHOP

  • Rosemary Wanganeen’s Loss, Grief and Suicide Prevention will inform, challenge and inspire you.

    Rosemary draws on her own highly personal and professional experiences to provide unique and practical insights to managing mental health issues in Aboriginal communities. Using her groundbreaking model, Seven Phases to Integrating Loss and Grief, she will:

    show how grieving processes in traditional Aboriginal culture prevented social, emotional and physical diseases and disorders

    explain the profound relationship between suppressed unresolved loss/ grief in Aboriginal communities, and mental illness

    show how western health systems can ‘disconnect’ the innate human intuitive intelligence to trigger mental illnesses, diseases and disorders

    show how Plato’s view of grief as a weakness negatively influenced ancient western culture, and how it now influences contemporary health systems to create intergenerational grief fear

    show how grief fear can be transformed into our innate human intuitive intelligence to create Aboriginal prosperity.

    Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal health professionals alike will leave the workshop with knowledge, skills and practical strategies to transform their practice. Perspectives will be challenged, insights will be formed, skills will be learned, lives will be improved.

    Rosemary’s insights and her highly practical approach to working with loss and grief has transformed the outlook of healthcare professionals across the country.

    Your Presenter

    Rosemary Kudnarto Wanganeen is a proud Aboriginal South Australian of Kaurna, Koogatha and Wirrangu heritage. Rosemary founded the Sacred Site Within Healing Centre in 1993, and in its strength founded the Australian Institute for Loss and Grief in 2005. Since this time, the Institute has worked with health professionals across Australia to challenge respectfully, from an Aboriginal perspective, prevailing western perspectives about loss and grief.

    Rosemary’s passion is for improving health services to Aboriginal communities, but her story, her research, her insights and her highly practical approach to working with loss and grief has transformed the outlook of healthcare professionals across the country, regardless of the communities in which they work.

    Her background as a Stolen Generation child and as a researcher with both the Committee to Defend Black Rights (1986) and the Royal Commission into Black Deaths in Custody (1988) give her deep and personal insights to what is often called Aboriginal disadvantage. These insights informed her groundbreaking Seven Phases to Integrating Loss and Grief. This highly

    acclaimed work explores the relationship between loss, grief and disadvantage in Aboriginal communities. In so doing, it offers practical strategies to turn Aboriginal disadvantage to Aboriginal prosperity.

    On the basis of her 25 years industry experience, Rosemary has been admitted to a Master of Philosophy degree at the University of Adelaide, leading to a PhD questioning whether Aboriginal disadvantage is becoming an Aboriginal industry.

    Rosemary is a counsellor, author, academic, researcher, public speaker, educator and entrepreneur. She presented to the SA Psychiatry Board in 2016 and 2018, and her work has been recognised internationally. She is the recipient of numerous awards recognising her contribution to Aboriginal health.
