Dorothy Gilmour
Experienced Member Behind The Badge, At Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club

Dorothy has vast experience and professional, academic history in Social Sciences including human behaviours and challenges of specialised groups. 

Her main practice was in the area of trauma, loss, grief, mediation and suicide prevention for individuals, parents and families and included debriefing after a critical incident in workplaces and post community disasters.  Her services included 14 years of University lecturing in Masters of Psychology, Social Science and Family Therapy .

Dorothy remains an advocate for social justice and fairness for those less fortunate.  She is determined for everyday people to be part of the solution in the prevention of family violence and elder abuse across the world. 

Her belief is that we must take some responsibility and assist our Police and social services to manage this epidemic of abuse: 'We must assist a victim or possible victim of abuse, by being able to identify and report any form of abuse, not sit on our hands. Let us help to ensure our children and grandchildren do not perpetrate this lack of respect for humanity.”

A passionate Rotarian, Paul Harris awardee and Founder/Chair of Rotary SAFE Families for Rotary in Australia, Dorothy has a great sense of humour and is looking forward to providing support and fellowship with Rotary Hawthorn.  "Onwards and Upwards!"
