Circle of Safety Family Violence program; integrating trauma informed care and culture (Session K)

The team at Aboriginal Counseling Services has embarked on a journey to address intergenerational trauma from a somatic and cultural perspective. After 8 years of somatic orientated training, the team has integrated these concepts into their work with those impacted by domestic violence. The team focuses on intergenerational resiliency and will speak to how individuals can find their strength to grow and heal. The presentation will address the teachings we have learned and draw on cultural connections that support healing and wellness. The Circle of Safety Family Violence program also just completed a program evaluation and this will also be discussed.
