Location Robert Scott School, Ginganamlatsi Room

Welcome all foster parents and social workers!

This experiential workshop will help us to understand traditional Aboriginal ways and values. We will explore our personal role in supporting the revival of those values. We will explore the affects of residential schools and Canada’s policy of Assimilation. This workshop is geared towards solutions rather than recrimination and is a great opportunity for foster parents and social workers to learn together and ask questions.

Participants need to understand that we will be addressing residential school, and its effects, in an in-depth way. Participation may trigger unresolved grief and loss issues for some. It is imperative that participants know this in advance, have options to access support afterwards and an understanding that coming to the workshop is not mandatory. Participants must pre-register and commit to being present for the day in its entirety. Please contact Nicki Therrien (250-949-8011) or Randi Rosso (nics-ffs@telus.net) for training information or to register details.
