An Aboriginal worldview, balanced with professional codes such as social work, psychology and law.
Yamurrah was founded by Rowena Lawrie, an Aboriginal woman, who had been working in the field of trauma, human rights, law and justice for over 25 years. She wanted to develop a service that was innovative and creative as well as professional and trauma-informed, that made a real difference in people’s lives, both personally and professionally.
Yamurrah’s services are unique in that it holds an Aboriginal worldview and Aboriginal healing frameworks that balance with professional codes such as social work, psychology and law.
Yamurrah believes that when trauma occurs, there is usually disconnection and disempowerment and that our work with recovery aims to soothe this harm, by focusing on re-connections and re-empowerment. Specifically, we can support practitioners and individuals that are working in the field of sexual and domestic violence, addiction, physiological and psychological well-being.
