The Gatekeeper Cultures and Spirituality - Interventionist to Suicide

BOOK YOUR PLACE AT THIS MASTERCLASS, BECOME AN INTERVENTIONIST TO SUICIDE AND LEARN STRATEGIES IN MANAGING

INTER-GENERATIONAL TRAUMA TO BREAK THE CYCLE OF SUICIDE IN OUR COMMUNITIES.

Worrying about how your team, family and community effectively assist and manage clients experiencing inter-generational trauma? Indigenous peoples around the world endured several generations of trauma and other neurological effects and compromised behavioural immunity which leads to behavioural indicators such as substance-abuse and suicide.  Our current generation is impacted by structural violence, poverty, racism, governmental neglect and ongoing hostilities, and unfortunately our mob have learned our lessons in traumatization as well where in many situations, we have internalised the trauma imposed on ourselves and turned onto our own families, communities, and ourselves.   

This one-day workshop will teach you:
    The strong benefits of recapturing and revitalising our languages, cultures and spirituality
    Infuse our health care with what is known as trauma-informed care and become an interventionist to suicide
    Understand and utilise trauma-informed care to heal ourselves, our clients, and our communities.
    Strategies in managing clients and families affected by inter-generational trauma and break the cycle of suicide in our communities.

In Just One Day You Can Learn Strategies how to become an interventionist to suicide and work effectively with your clients who are experiencing inter-generational trauma and their families.
