Rebuilding Connections: RECONCILIATION, RELATIONSHIPS, AND RELATEDNESS Day One: Intergenerational Trauma & Recovery with Dr. Raven Sinclair “We’re on a journey of remembering who we are as Indigenous people and the gifts that we bring to this world.” ~Dr. Raven Sinclair
Part I: The History of Indigenous Trauma
Participants will be provided with insight into Indigenous worldview and knowledge, as a foundation for understanding how aspects of colonization have resulted in intergenerational trauma.
Part II: Blood Memory, the Embodiment of Trauma, and Soul Wounds
Indigenous conceptualizations of trauma, ethics and the connection between ethics, worldview, and trauma as well as Indigenous understandings of how trauma affects individuals and communities will be explored.
Part III: Moving Forward: Indigenous Recovery
The final part of the day will present an Indigenous approach to wellbeing and recovery that is premised upon Indigenous ethical principles, which is aligned with the notion of personal accountability. A model for trauma inquiry will be provided.
• Understand the impact of adverse childhood experiences and complex trauma on mind/body/spirit unity. • Understand the circumstances required for recovery and resiliency across the life span. • Understand the importance of cross cultural skill development to build relationship and connection with clients. • Learn strategies that nurture resilience and build inner strength in children and youth.
Day Two: Restoring Resiliency and Spiritual Balance through Connectedness with Dr. Martin Brokenleg “In this materialistic, fast-paced culture, many children have broken circles, and the fault line usually starts with damaged relationships. Having no bonds to significant adults, they chase counterfeit belongings through gangs, cults, and promiscuous relationships. Some are so alienated that they have abandoned the pursuit of human attachment. Guarded, lonely, and distrustful, they live in despair or strike out in rage. Families, schools, and youth organizations are being challenged to form new “tribes” for all of our children so there will be no “psychological orphans.” ~Dr. Martin Brokenleg
Part I: Culture and Helping
Human service providers know clients inside and out... or do they? Cross cultural skills are crucial for youth workers and yet there is a mystery to culture. Learn what research says about helping professions and hear what suggestions might support your work with diverse populations.
ABOUT Dr. Brokenleg
Part II: Mobilizing Communities
Some populations display complex social patterns that are the result of history. Aboriginal youth display inter-generational trauma but usually receive symptom treatment. The Circle of Courage transforms the foundation conditions for Native or any other youth. Returning to traditional Aboriginal ways of raising youth will restore youth to the heart and mindset that supported survival of indigenous peoples through many centuries.
Part III: Reaching Deeper: Touching a Child’s Inner World
From Parker Palmer to the Dalai Lama to the brain science of neurobiology, adults are pondering the importance of tending the inner world of children and youth. Native peoples have traditions which enhance and explore the inner world of youth regardless of that youth’s values. Current resiliency strategies create inner strength in children and youth. This session develops a theory of creating inner strength in children and youth and explores specific activities adults can use in classrooms and residences to help children grow on the inside.
