UPDATE (April 27, 2021): This training is now full. We are taking a waitlist to assess interest in another session.
Registration is now open for this two-day virtual workshop facilitated by BC Council for Families! And it is completely free for FRP-BC members.
Date: May 10 & May 11, 2021
Time: 9:30am-3:30pm both days
Location: Virtual (Zoom)
Using interactive group discussions, case scenarios, and introspective activities, the workshop will help participants better understand the impacts of colonization; what trauma is and how to recognize its signs and symptoms; and how to develop strategies to support meaningful healing processes.
The workshops also discuss:
- How colonization affects child development and impacts the health of Indigenous people
- The importance and relevance of Cultural Safety (CS) and Trauma-Informed Practice (TIP) in early childhood interventions
- The reception and efficacy of childhood intervention services, reflecting on ways that health intervention practices can actually perpetuate and recreate trauma
- Adverse childhood experiences and how they affect brain development, physical development and emotional regulation
- Trauma responses, complex traumas: intergenerational trauma and community level trauma
- Social determinants of health – including unique social determinants of health for Indigenous people – and their relevance in early childhood development
- Power imbalances and institutional discrimination
Facilitated by BC Council for Families.
