- Global research shows cultural therapy heals trauma !
An Australian expert in Aboriginal and Islander trauma and self harm has urged the Prime Minister to include cultural therapy in schools to help address and turn around the worlds highest rates of youth suicide.
Emeritus Professor Judy Atkinson says young Aboriginal and Torres strait Islander males aged between 15 and 19 are four and a half more likely to die of suicide than their non Aboriginal counterparts and females the same age are six times more likely to suicide than other young women.
Professor Atkinson has urged Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Federal Education Minister Christopher Pyne to consider the importance of cultural therapy while young people are attending school.
