Dr Graham Gee 2019 Conference Keynote - Recording
Working therapeutically with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the area of healing and recovery from trauma - By Dr Graham Gee
Keynote Address at PACFA Conference 2019
Dr Graham Gee will draw on clinical experience and research to explore some of the unique challenges involved in supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to heal from trauma. The presentation will begin with a focus on some important therapeutic foundations for practitioners, such as the need for cultural humility and developing a stance of advocacy. The second part of the presentation will highlight the roles of self-determination and culture in healing and recovery from trauma. In the final part of the presentation, Graham will explore how experiences of intergenerational and complex trauma can emerge in the therapeutic space, for example processes related to historical grief and loss, the impact of the Stolen Generations, male vulnerability, and cultural renewal.
Dr Graham Gee completed his combined Masters/PhD in Psychology (Clinical) in 2016. He has been a registered psychologist for the past 10 years at the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service. His main area of research is in complex trauma, resilience and trauma recovery. Graham has previously been a committee member of the Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association and is a founding board member of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing Foundation.
