Last night the ABC’s Four Corners program aired shocking footage of the treatment of young Aboriginal children in custody in the Dondale Detention Centre. What I witnessed fills me with shame and a sense of responsibility to speak out.

The CC TV footage revealed assaults on young Aboriginal boys as young as 14, with groups of guards kicking, beating, goading, forcibly restraining them and using tear gas on them. The accompanying image to this post is taken from that footage. Independent Ombudsmen report the extraordinary and unacceptable use of solitary confinement, while other minors describe being pressured to attack those targeted by warders as troublemakers.

When questioned about the treatment of minors at the Centre, the NT Minister for Correctional Services, John Elferink, deflected any focus on his own failure to act on extensive reports on the problem by benignly raising questions about whether the personnel dealing with these youth had been adequately trained.

To dismiss this behaviour as a reflection of inadequate training ignores the systemic dimensions of this situation and offers little confidence that the disgraceful patterns of behaviour and norms that have developed within the institution will be addressed. And I say this as someone in the learning and development field!

Developing Skill and Wisdom in Facilitation

with Dr Stephen Schuitevoerder

8-11 September 2016

In this workshop we will use the methodology of Process Work to guide us in developing new skills. Process Work is a dynamic neo-Jungian method that I have worked with for over 30 years. The last 15 years I have been applying this methodology with significant success in working with organizational clients in individual, team and whole system facilitation. In this workshop we will explore the foundational skills of Process Work including eldership, structural awareness, emerging processes, edge work and system approaches to change, and apply them in experiential exercises. This methodology of facilitated supervision is an advanced approach in cultivating our skills as facilitators and will occur throughout the workshop.

The second area of focus will be in developing our deep sense of values and wisdom in our lives and work. We will explore the importance of wisdom in our work, how this can be developed over time and practices that can assist us in this process. In this sense the workshop will be a time of focus on both our skill and personal development as facilitators.
