Erin provided workshops to our Tennant Creek and Alice Springs Volunteers on Brain Development and Trauma. Our volunteers support young people in police custody and deliver activities to young people in Youth Detention so the training was of particular importance to our programs. Erin kept the group engaged by drawing and storytelling as she moved through her training. You could see the light bulb moments for our volunteers - where all of their work in this space made sense.
