Healing Through The Map Project

The Healing Through the Map Project focused on the delivery of the Map of Loss workshops to Aboriginal people within their communities, and to Aboriginal Health Workers and other Health Professionals who work within Aboriginal communities.
The Project was delivered in the South West and Great Southern regions of Western Australia.


The Map of Loss was developed in 1999 by Western Australian psychologist Roslyn Snyder, and is delivered by trained facilitiors through Wisdom In Your Life.
It is a simple, pratical visual tool that develops coping skills, builds resilience, helps increase self-awareness and promotes self-care in those who apply it.
It has been the subject of four independent evaluations and a doctoral thesis, and has been used for over a decade.
The Map of Loss workshops focus on the total person - on body, mind, spirit and culture, which is why the Map is assumed to be particularly effective in Aboriginal communities.

Funded through the Australian Government, Department of Health and Ageing via the National Suicide Prevention Program.

The Map Workshop

The Map was developed in 1999 by Roslyn Snyder, published in Journey to the Centre of Your Life – The Map.  While appearing simple and easy to understand, the map is a powerful tool, which has been used in self-care, clinical practice and community development.
