Impacts of Residential School and Colonization Workshop

A powerful experiential workshop to help educate Service Providers of the collective trauma that has impacted Indigenous people throughout Canada’s history. 

After understanding that a collective trauma exists, participants will better understand how the feelings such as: fear, shame, learned helplessness, and anger began to infiltrate into our communities and led to the disempowering behaviours and social conditions tat we see today. With this change in perception, by having experienced these impacts during the workshop, participants will have an accurate understanding of why Indigenous people see, think, feel and behave as they do. 

As a result, service providers will be better prepared to effectively communicate and empower the Indigenous members of their communities.
