Trauma-Informed Interventions through an Indigenous Worldview

Presented by: Brianna Olson.
This Webinar was presented and recorded on June 26, 2018. 

An Indigenous worldview and perspective centers the holistic wellness of the individual as part of the collective community, and exists in relation to the natural world, spirit world and Ancestors. An Indigenous Trauma Informed Approach recognizes the social historical impacts that have disrupted Anishinaabe Bimatisiwin (Indigenous life), and the revitalization of this worldview that naturally encompasses strategies of anti-oppression, non-interference and client self-determination.

This Webinar explores the mind-body connection, trauma responses, and intervention strategies from an Indigenous worldview.
