WORKSHOP DETAILS:

Advanced T.I.P. Training: Exploring the Healing of Indigenous Intergenerational Trauma and Residential School Trauma

This advanced workshop deepens understanding of indigenous intergenerational trauma from a theoretical, systemic, arts-based, experiential framework. Through a respectful lens this training will cover the foundations of healing emotional, physiological and spiritual aspects of trauma, and the legacy of trauma from Canada’s residential school system, including the resurfacing of grief and complex trauma from the uncovering of unmarked, undocumented gravesites.

This is an advanced workshop and as such a foundational base of trauma informed practice is encouraged. While this training is customized for those in the medical and healing professions, it is open to any one with a basic knowledge of trauma informed practice.

DATE: Sunday February 13, 2022

TIME: 10:00AM am to 2:30PM PST (Vancouver BC time).

ONLINE ( Using Zoom. Participants sent link to room 48 hours prior to the workshop start time)
