Blending Western Practices with Traditional Aboriginal Approaches to Healing
2021-05-28 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm
What can modern counselors, therapists and others learn from Aboriginal healing traditions?
In this 3-hour webinar, Order of Ontario recipient Elder Little Brown Bear will share his approaches and practices in helping those on their Healing Journeys.
These traditional practices are still used today to help people on their healing path. They have been shown to be helpful when dealing with life’s difficulties and addressing issues and challenges commonly faced by individuals, families and communities.
You will learn how to apply these healing approaches not only for your own personal healing journey but in a clinical and non-clinical setting.
The Elder will discuss step-by-step the mindset and processes behind specific interventions such as teachings on human interactions and behaviours towards others, the Medicine Wheel, the Seven Grandfathers and the use of Traditional Medicines.
These Traditional Teachings continue to help community with difficulties such as trauma, mood altering alternatives (addictions), mental well-being (health) loneliness, depression, building healthy relationships and anxiety in clinical and non-clinical settings.
This workshop will benefit and inspire therapists/counselors working with any population.
