First Nations Historical Impacts Training Series, Session 4: Exploring the Significance of Attachment

Despite its considerable public health importance, childhood attachment is seriously under-represented in health and social services training. Children are by definition, dependent, and their dependency means that the nature of their family relationships profoundly influences their experiences in later in life. This seminar will provide a basic understanding of early childhood attachment and long term impacts on health and wellness.

Facilitator: Dr. Allyson Cushing

First Nations Historical Impacts Training Series, Session 3: Understanding Trauma

  • Location: Government House, Sto:lo Nation (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Those providing services to First Nations clientele have a responsibility to understand the impacts of trauma beginning with the profound effects of colonization. The experience of trauma is so prevalent among the First Nation population in Canada that service providers can safely assume that a significant percentage of their First Nation clientele have survived a trauma. Working without a basic knowledge of trauma, can leave survivors feeling misunderstood and unsupported which perpetuates a damaging cycle that prevents healing and growth. This seminar will provide a basic knowledge of trauma and briefly explore trauma-informed language and practices.

This session will be enable the participant to trace all the compounding elements of our historical past from contact to 2016.

Local service providers will gather to share information about how they can help tenants be better tenants and stay housed, rental income subsidies and programs landlords can access to improve their properties. There will also be presentations from local landlords who have successfully housed people in the long term, even those who live with mental illness. All this adds up to reduced turnover costs for current landlords, and potential new income to homeowners considering rental situations.
