Australian Aboriginal people today
A non-Indigenous example of inter-generational trauma
Many Vietnam Veterans were traumatised by their experiences in the Vietnam War and found it difficult to heal from those wounds because their experience was not widely honoured until years later. For some of these men these wounds played out in the form of addiction, alcoholism, violence, suicide, or simply an inability to truly connect with others. Some of their children then, were raised in a traumatic environment – deeply affected by their father’s or mother’s wounds. Those children, then, developed their own wounds which also get played out in addiction, suicide, etc, and so it gets passed down the generations.
One of the big differences between Vietnam Veterans and those from previous wars was that, on their return, their nation as a whole did not acknowledge what they had been through. Because of this, individuals, families and governments have had to explore how to ensure that these wounds are healed, so that the inter-generational impacts of that war of 40 years ago are minimised.
History records that even where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples shared traumatic experiences with other Australians, they often didn’t have the same support extended to them. For example Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander veterans from the first and second world wars were not provided the same entitlements as their fellow diggers such as war pensions and cheap housing loans.
And, like Vietnam Veterans, the fact that the wider community did not know or acknowledge what they had been through has made the healing process very difficult. In many families, inter-generational trauma has been the result.coworking vs traditional office coworking space whitstable coworking space software forbes coworking spaces coworking space in gurgaon cheap coworking london day pass coworking london new jersey coworking space coworking brussel coworking apartment coworking aldgate coworking space in whitefield sala de reuniones coworking coworking retreat new york coworking space coworking quarry bay coworking community wing coworking space coworking desk space london coworking sofia pay as you go coworking space london the coworking space student coworking space coworking spaces farringdon networking coworking coworking space bloomsbury coworking space surbiton coworking office clark wellbeing coworking space london south coworking space agreement coworking space price coworking hotel in london marketing coworking space coworking office hong kong coworking spaces houston creative coworking space design coworking space köln nextspace coworking berkeley roam+coliving+&+coworking+ubud+ubud+indonesia the ministry coworking space inexpensive coworking space woodstock coworking office ali abdaal live coworking coworking spaces cheshire coworking space near primrose hill fullerton coworking space coworking space haywards heath charlottesville coworking space greenhouse coworking space work and play coworking space coworking cornwall coworking austin tx best coworking spaces west london coworking map coworking space with creche coworking space chennai london coworking 3 july suburban coworking coworking space california how to choose a coworking space what is coworking spaces how does coworking space work work coworking space coworking space platform coworking manhattan coworking offices in london coworking space bedford coworking space aldgate coworking milton keynes coworking space stratford london coworking sarria san antonio coworking space london book coworking space coworking space rome coworking stockholm riveter coworking space lead generation for coworking space bath coworking how to market a coworking space coworking space venice beach coworking office space cambridge coworking space eastwood aberdeen coworking space coworking dalston coworking space for creatives coworking stockport coworking fort worth coworking boston whats a coworking space coworking space baker street target audience for coworking space rent coworking spaces coworking space whitefield coworking krakow coworking space london waterloo coworking industry uncommon london coworking the future of coworking spaces coworking fortaleza international women's day 2022 international women's day belfast international airport international women's day 2022 international women’s day st pancras international international space station amnesty international international mens day international womens day men in black international witt international international international football iran international mib international international travel happy international women's day austin powers: international man of mystery international friendlies romans international cardiff international pool stratford international ashford international royal mail international tracking bournemouth international centre fidelity international barbour international belfast international airport parking international football fixtures royal mail tracking international belfast international arrivals royal mail international ashford international hotel international driving permit ebbsfleet international international travel uk international women's day 2022 theme international airport international school birmingham international international men's day royal mail international prices "cqa international" camping international birmingham international train station interval international international tracking international nurses day 2022 dhl international tracking hermes international declaration form for international travel international baccalaureate babcock international cnn international tremor international share price sydney international natwest international international break international nurses day international travel restrictions international women's day quotes international dog day belfast international airport arrivals polymetal international share price forbidden planet international belfast international australia international travel fbi international when is international women's day men in black: international barbour international jacket colliers international mondelez international international mens day 2022 plan international international phonetic alphabet department for international trade belfast international departures manchester international festival parrys international international relations london international horse show
