June 5, 2017 - First Nations Historical Impacts Training Series, Session 3: Understanding Trauma, Facilitated by Dr. Allyson Cushing
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.

June 12, 2017 - First Nations Historical Impacts Training Series, Session 4: Exploring the Significance of Attachment, Facilitated by Dr. Allyson Cushing
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.
