Trauma-Informed Practice with Indigenous Peoples across the Life Span
Date & Time: May 16, 2017 | 1:00 pm to 2:15 pm Eastern Standard Time
Presented by: Natalie Clark, Associate Professor School of Social Work and Human Service, Thompson River University.
Presentation: Natalie Clark will examine the beginnings of a trauma practice framework that is Indigenous, intersectional and holistic and that considers how experiences of trauma and of healing are shaped by the interlocking impact of Indigeneity, age, gender, sexuality, and (dis) ability, among others. She will discuss the development of Indigenous intersectional, trauma-informed and culturally safe practice approaches with people of different age groups. Ms. Clark will also describe how to assist Indigenous peoples in understanding and improving their coping responses to daily triggers including the impact of experiences of racism, poverty, sexism, and colonialism.
Conducting Research with Indigenous Populations
Date & Time: June 6, 2017 1:00 to 2:15 PM Eastern Standard Time
Presented by: Dr. Gwen Healey, Executive and Scientific Director, Qaujigiartiit Health Research Centre, Iqaluit
Presentation: There is a growing awareness that Indigenous knowledge must be perceived, collected, and shared in ways that are unique to and shaped by the communities and individuals from which this knowledge is gathered. In this webinar, Dr. Healey will offer a model based on Inuit perspectives on health-related research epistemologies and methodologies to inform research. In particular, webinar participants will be introduced to the Piliriqatigiinniq Community Health Research Model rooted in Inuit concepts and perspectives on health, wellness, and research. This approach may inspire other communities to develop similar frameworks.
