Indigenous Trauma Informed Practices Training

About this Event

This online full day training will explore the connection of spirit to trauma informed practices. The presenters discuss trauma informed work, what it means to be trauma informed and what it can look like with students in the classroom, for leaders, front line workers and health care professionals. This training creates space to explore wisakacihowin from an Indigenous lens that will honour Indigenous ways of knowing, being and doing. The dialogue creates opportunities to learn through stories and build on strategies for professionals working with Indigenous people. It provides education on the history of trauma for Indigenous peoples and the complexity within our communities. Trauma management supports through a pandemic is also included in this training to assist professionals with strategies to support their community.
