Indigenous Trauma Workshop

Price: $550 CDN. Negotiable for organizations with less capacity (even free).

Learning Outcomes of Workshop for Participants

  • Indigenous Trauma, and how it is a barrier for success for Indigenous workers, students, parents, and communities.
  • How integrating Indigenization and decolonization (i.e. elders, education, intercultural competency training, etc.) helps increase work results for companies and nonprofits.
  • Why providing continuous education for management and staff on the history of Indigenous peoples (including the residential school system, treaty, Indian Act, etc.) and on anti-racism and anti-bias training helps increase work results.

Workshop Description

Colonization was a policy choice by European nations wanting to expand their empires across the globe. For Canada, this policy has lead to a string of policies that have instilled perpetual, ongoing historical trauma onto Indigenous peoples.

In my workshop I dive into my research on Indigenous Genocide by Shame while I was a student research associate at Mount Royal University. This work is award winning at the 2018 International Social Innovation Research Conference (ISIRC), which is the world’s leading interdisciplinary social innovation research conference, I testified on this work to the Senate of Canada, it has influenced Indigenous Post Secondary policy at the Federal level, and many companies and nonprofits have enjoyed the workshop from across the world.

Participant Information

This workshop is ideal for entire companies and organizations and their staff, board directors, councilors, post secondary stakeholders (students, faculty and staff), grassroot groups, teams, and any group with 5 or more people that has a desire to start or recommit their journey of engaging in Truth and Reconciliation.
