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.
