INTERGENERATIONAL IMPACTS OF THE RESIDENTIAL SCHOOLS: A Trauma-Informed Workshop.

This is an informational 1 or 2 day workshop designed for professionals, employers, agency employees, community members who want to know more about the inter-generational impacts from the residential school experience.  This workshop applies a trauma-informed lens combined with attachment and grief information to show the four traumatized generations created by the forced removal of children from their families.

WHEN TURTLE MET RABBIT: WORKING WITH INDIGENOUS FAMILIES: A Trauma-Informed Workshop.

Indigenous families come from a spiritual tradition of relationship, kindness, nurturance and accountability.  Over the years of colonization and genocide, trauma and loss were introduced and the roles of children and adults were reversed.  This 3 day workshop examines the traditional family, the traumatized family, and now the healing family. Trauma impacts on the brain are taught.  It offers essential information for any professional person working with Indigenous families, including the practice of cultural safety.  It is presented in both experiential and didactic format.

LATERAL KINDNESS WORKSHOP

In the Indigenous circle there are five key values:  Kindness, Gentleness, Honesty, Accountability and Humour.  Together these values create Respect. One of the Haudensaunee teachings is that we are here on earth to have fun!

An Elder, Barney Williams from Nuu-chah-nulth has asked that we focus ourselves now on being Kind to one another.

This is a one day workshop for staff and management that provides fun, laughter, insight, and tools for turning relationships to kindness and overall respect.
