Trauma, Domestic Violence & Substance Abuse: Culturally-based Healing

Event Type
Event Date
Wednesday, March 28, 2018, 12:00PM
- Friday, March 30, 2018

Many Native people, young and old, have survived a lifetime of violence that profoundly impacts their lives in many ways. This workshop begins with a look at the root causes and layers of violence/trauma in Indian Country, and their impact, including substance abuse and domestic violence. The major focus will be on culturally-based, trauma-informed responses that facilitate the healing process for victims/survivors, and self-care for advocates and other helpers. Information on programming for Native youth and offenders will also be included.

Who should attend? This workshop is appropriate for advocates, law enforcement, court personnel, housing, social services, medical personnel, and community members. Any person working in a helping profession, or who has experienced or witness addiction and violence will benefit from this workshop.
