“We Al-li community and workplace workshops are an Indigenous therapeutic response to individual, family and community pain that many people carry as part of their life experience. For Aboriginal peoples this pain is more specifically defined as the traumatic impacts of the multiple intergenerational experiences of colonisation resulting in ill-health, individual, family and community dysfunction (dys – Latin from the Greek dus meaning painful or difficult functioning). We Al-li specifically meets this need through tailored workshops that are trauma informed in their design and trauma specific in their delivery.
This training provides key approaches to setting up and maintaining trauma-informed organisational structures. Becoming trauma-informed allows us to deeply consider policy development and trauma specific work practice and service care strategies to more realistically meet the needs of affected people and communities.
Our workshops are built on the principles of integrating Indigenous cultural processes of education, conflict management, and personal/social healing with Eastern and Western therapeutic skills for trauma recovery within an action based experiential learning practice.

“This training introduces Dadirri as the core of all We Al-li practices and skill based learning outcomes. Dadirri provides the foundation for culturally safe practices and establishes a respectful healing environment for skills transference in all We Al-li professional development trainings. Learning to communicate with ourselves and each other at deep levels is primary to effective practice.
Participants are introduced to many key therapeutic approaches used by We Al-li including story mapping, sand-play, music, art therapy, movement and guided imagery.” – We Al-li Programs

Trauma Informed Care & Practice: An Indigenous approach to developing worker skills © copyright We Al-li
“This training provides key approaches to setting up and maintaining trauma-integrated organisational structures. Becoming trauma-integrated allows us to deeply consider policy development and trauma specific work practice and service care strategies to more realistically meet the needs of affected people and communities.
This package understands that “in a trauma-integrated system, trauma is viewed not as a single discrete event, but rather as a defining and organising experience that forms the core of an individuals identity. The far reaching impact and the attempts to cope with the aftermath of the traumatic experience, comes to define who the survivor is” (Harris & Fallot, 2002).” – We Al-li Programs

Culturally Informed, Trauma Integrated Healing Approach (CITIHA) as system transformation is © copyright We Al-li
“A CITIHA is a strengths-based service delivery model that is rooted in an understanding of and responsiveness to the impact of trauma on culture and community that emphasises physical, psychological, and emotional safety for both the people we walk alongside and staff.
We Al-li offers a comprehensive approach to achieve systems transformation through having all organisational staff contribute their knowledge and understanding of the business is a way that is practical and without being disruptive to service delivery. We can be flexible to meet your requirements. Recently we delivered this approach nationally in the following way, and found it to be robust:
The model also involved:
The governance framework for the CITIHA includes five key assumptions, seven core values and eight core principles, all which support the outcomes of the CITIHA, critically embedding all actions in policy, procedure and practice.
