Event description
This experiential workshop explores our personal role in supporting the revival of the values that worked in Indigenous villages for years.

About this Event

Facilitated by Kathi Camilleri

Sponsored by the UCV Social Justice Committee and Vancouver Quakers

During this experiential workshop we will explore our personal role in supporting the revival of the values that worked so beautifully in Indigenous villages for thousands of years. We will also explore in-depth the affects of Residential Schools and Canada’s Policy of Assimilation.

This workshop is geared to solutions rather than recrimination and is a great forum in which to ask questions. The workshop is done from a non-blame and non-shame perspective and invites all participants to become a part of the healing that IS already happening.

Kathi’s work has been inspired by Jann Derrick’s teachings of Jann Derrick’s “The Circle and The Box” and by many Elders’ teachings.

Kathi Camilleri is a cultural safety consultant working with organizations and communities desiring positive change.

Kathi brings almost 25 years of leadership experience in facilitating, counseling, developing, directing and coordinating Aboriginal community-based programs. Facilitated and managed culturally-based strategic planning sessions, conflict resolution and counseling strategies for groups and individuals, developed community workshops to create understanding and support for families who are experiencing the generational effects of the trauma of residential schools. Kathi has also developed networking circles to bring service providers together and to increase cultural competency.

Her work has been inspired by Jann Derrick’s teachings of ‘The Circle and The Box’ along with the input and teachings of many, dear Elders who often co-facilitate with her. Her certifications include Re-enactment Therapy for Trauma Survivors, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for Trauma, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and holds a Master of Arts in Leadership. My thesis, Returning Home to the Values of the Village focused on the revival of culturally-based values in order to increase collaboration among staff within an Aboriginal service-providing agency.

Cost: Suggested donation $20 per person

Lunch (soup and bannock) and other light refreshments will be provided.

Child Care: Please let us know if you need child care (and for how many children & their ages). We are exploring options for child care.
