About the Event
This workshop will focus on the importance of using trauma-informed practices when working with native communities. There will be examples on how colonial violence and policies created historical and generational trauma, but how reclaiming traditional ways of knowledge is the key to moving forward. Participants will leave with a better understanding of what it means to center strengths-based approaches in professional settings to meet the needs of the native communities they are serving.
