Aboriginal Trauma Certificate
This 20-day (10 credit) program is open to Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal professionals, and is delivered in four one-week modules that are to be taken sequentially.
This certificate is offered on contract basis only.
The format is highly interactive and experiential: will include lectures, demonstrations, role-playing, and small group discussions; will provide regular opportunities for self-reflection, personal sharing, and storytelling; and will occasionally utilize talking circle and support group formats.
This program will be of interest to those who:
are front-line social service providers, or management/leadership personnel working primarily with rural or urban First Nations clients;
are currently supporting clients/communities to cope with the effects of inter-generational and personal trauma; and
are open to exploring the possible effects of personal history, culture, attitudes, and biases that could influence your work in this area.
You will gain increased knowledge, skills, and awareness on ways to effectively support Aboriginal survivors of inter-generational as well as personal trauma.
All or part of the certificate can be offered on a contract basis and customized for your organization, agency, or group. For further information, please contact Susan Forest, Program Coordinator, at 604.528.5711.
