Course Description:

Loss has been normalized amongst the Indigenous First Nations Peoples. The findings of the unmarked graves of Indigenous First Nation children are having a profound impact on First Nation people. This grief often creates a sense of disconnection from oneself and their relationship with others.

This live workshop is designed to give mental health therapists an increased understanding of the historical effects of grief and how it is now identified as complex complicated grief. This grief contributes to feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, worthlessness, and powerlessness. These feelings can lead to one dissociating and escaping the internal pain processes that result from continual and overwhelming environmental experiences.

Presenters will explain the concept of Two-Eyed Seeing and how this can allow westernized support workers to utilize traditional healing techniques and strategies to support the stabilization of individuals dealing with complex complicated grief.

Learning Objectives:

  • Relate how the historical effects of colonization have contributed to the inter transmission of grief from one generation to the next.
  • Relate the effects of the finding of the unmarked graves and how it has exacerbated the symptoms of complexed grief.
  • Detect the different types of grief experienced by Indigenous First Nation Peoples.
  • Identify obstacles in healing due to the enormous effects of suicide, opioid crisis, and covid pandemic.
  • Describe how traditional healing strategies can be combined with Westernized (Two-Eyed Seeing) approaches to support wellness.
  • Explain the importance of focusing on stabilization when working with complex grief.
  • Utilize three stabilization techniques to support grief.
