When we have lost touch with our emotions as can happen with trauma, body signals can be a great support in helping us notice and interpret what we are feeling. Even when we are unable say how we are feeling emotionally, most of us can learn to identify and describe what is happening in our body—our ‘body signals’.

Exploring 'Organisational White Privilege'

Whilst it is commonly recognised that white privilege exists for individuals, the issue of white privilege existing for mainstream organisations is not always recognised, discussed or explored.

The Bendigo Reconciliation Committee has developed a FREE resource for mainstream community organisations to explore the issue of ‘organisational white privilege’.

The development of this resource grew out of a Conversation Circle arranged by the Bendigo Reconciliation Committee (BRC) and member agencies during the 2018 Reconciliation Week.  This Conversation Circle was a vehicle for dialogue and reflection between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people on the theme of building and working in partnership.

Anxiety Solutions Competition Winner

Wow! So many great responses to our competition: 
'Let us know your favourite card from Anxiety Solutions for Kids: 50 Ways to Ride the Wave'.

The winner, from a random draw of entries is Belinda Ryan from Ignite Therapies. (Belinda will receive a free set of our new release Anxiety Solutions, aimed more for teens and adults.)

Belinda's favourite card from Anxiety Solutions for Kids card set is the 'Thank You' card.
It is her favourite because:
'We hang a card each week at our sink in the office and we look at it while we fill the kettle. When we put this one up I could hear my colleague in the kitchen repeatedly saying 'Thank you' in all different voices and volumes—to the universe. It was great!'
