The TLC workshop intensive is a 3-day personalised therapy group for female survivors of child sexual abuse. TLC will show you a path to healing & freedom from childhood emotional & sexual trauma. If you have the courage to face your past, & put an end to its power over you as an adult in a safe & caring environment, this workshop will open that door for you. Led by renowned health & forensic psychologist Dianne PerrettAbrahamsm & based on the groundbreaking foundations of inner child therapy developed by John Bradshaw, our specialist female psychologists & support staff will lead you safely onto a path of healing & recovery. You will learn how to champion yourself in a nurturing environment. This will empower you to face the future with other survivors & a strong network; you will receive specialist counselling & direction through ongoing referral. You are no longer alone. It takes courage to heal, recover & change; we will help you facilitate that process. Nutritional chef-prepared meals & snacks will be provided. In your own bedroom, you will be housed in self-contained cabins nestled against the backdrop of the Grampians National Park in Halls Gap Victoria. The only things to bring are clothing, personal effects, willingness, & courage. Sessions start at 8am, with formal processes concluding at 5pm. Following dinners, the program continues from 7 – 9pm. The clinical program is accompanied with structured walks into the Grampians & spiritual harp therapy. Survival is no longer an option; it’s time to start living on a recovery path.
*Survivors of child sexual abuse often bury & conceal their experiences, in many cases for decades. *An increased rate of both suicide & attempted suicide are associated with childhood trauma, particularly child sexual abuse (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2010). A 2010 study in the Medical Journal of Australia found significantly higher rates of suicide & accidental fatal drug overdose in the CSA group compared to national data for the general population (M Cutajar, 2010). *An adverse childhood experiences study in the US identified that adults who have experienced four or more adverse childhood experiences are 12 times more likely to have attempted suicide than those who have not experienced any forms of childhood trauma or abuse (Felitti, et al., 1998).
This is a serious issue in Australia
There is now little doubt about the relationship between childhood abuse & psychological problems as an adult. A study by Colombia University has revealed that 40% of those experiencing chronic depression for at least five years had experienced child sexual abuse. The complex trauma of adverse childhood experiences is now recognised to be particularly damaging because the brain is undergoing critical early development. According to NSW Health (1998), survivors of child sexual abuse accounted for 34% of all presentations across the mental health sector in 1998. Survivors of child sexual abuse constitute the greatest number of women requesting services both from the public and private mental health sectors (Henderson, 2006). Survivors often adopt the following behaviours: *Being overweight or obese *Smoking *Alcohol & drug abuse *Poor diet & nutrition *Lack of physical exercise With intervention – appropriate support, specialist treatment & trauma-informed practice interventions – adult survivors of child sexual abuse can lead healthy, positive, & productive lives. Their children, too, will benefit, because the resolution of trauma in parents intercepts its transmission to the next generation. You will bare witness to that fact during the TLC workshop.
MAGNIFICENT HEALING EXPERIENCES IN ANCIENT WILDERNESS
Eco-healing is about healing ourselves, communities and environments by dissolving separation and opening into wild flow, ease and connection. In places of extraordinary natural beauty, profound inspiration and important diversity, such as Tasmania’s Tarkine wilderness and the Kimberley wilderness, we adventure in deep community, exploring well beyond the surface. Immersed in visual beauty, fresh air, space and the web of life, we open ourselves and our hearts, strengthening our connections with all beings and the spirit of country. Facilitated by experienced male and female facilitators and usually with input from local indigenous people. Deep ecology, healing ecology and sacred ecology informed by shamanic practices help us connect in all kinds of significant and life-changing ways. We warmly invite you to these eco-healing retreats as a way forward.

LEARN ABOUT THE AMAZING BACH FLOWER SYSTEM
“Health depends on being in harmony with our soul” [Susan Gianevsky, Dip Hom, B.ED, ITF’86] I believe that Bach Flowers are even more relevant today than ever before. We are so bombarded with health pills claiming to be the new panacea for everything, from slimming to slowing the ageing cycle, that we have forgotten the importance of the key ingredient to a happy & healthy self: a balanced emotional self that enjoys a positive outlook. Dr. Bach spent many years fine tuning the 38 remedies so that they fitted into categories that are still relevant to people all around the world today, bringing internal comfort, balance, understanding & soul harmony that creates our positive imprint for the future.
