Canada’s history of maltreatment of First Nations continues to do harm to Indigenous peoples every day. Whether in an urban, rural or remote setting, First Nations peoples, their families and communities face challenges as a result of Intergenerational trauma and assimilation. The challenges are often manifested most severely in the areas of health and relationships.

This session will be of interest to those working in First Nation communities and others who work with First Nations children and youth in a variety of service settings.

In this training, participants will learn how individuals who have experienced Intergenerational Trauma perceive and interact with the world around them. Learn about culturally safe practice, how to implement simple, straightforward and practical techniques and how to support people to build resiliency skills.
