Viewing End-of-Life Through an Indigenized Lens presented by Cynthia Wesley-Esquimaux, Ph.D.
Many of us have spent our lifetimes defending our lands, waters, and children’s rights, and it has made a difference, but there are other parts of our lifeways requiring attention as well. Most of us are aware that health care has been a place of significant discrimination. This webinar offers food for thought on how the biomedical model has interfered with end-of-life experiences for Indigenous peoples. The goal is to create awareness and generate a discussion on how the regeneration or restoration of “wise practices” (we have our own ways) is in our own hands, and in the hearts and minds of our Elders.
Culturally Informed Healing Practices for Treating Trauma and Eating Disorders presented by Carolyn Coker Ross, MD, MPH, CEDS
Our culture is how we see and make meaning of the world around us. Our experiences, “what happens to us”, can be interpreted differently depending on our cultural lens. Trauma has been shown in research to be a significant predictor of eating pathology. Research has also shown that culture is a vital element in the development of eating disorders. One way in which culture promotes eating disorders is through understanding that body image issues and eating behaviours may serve as reactions to cultural norms that idealize thinness. While eating disorders have been primarily seen as affecting white middle to upper class women, more recent studies have shown unequivocally that eating disorders occur in ethnically diverse women and in men, with trauma often being a significant risk factor for the development of an eating disorder. Culturally informed healing practices provide an understanding of the social and local contexts of trauma that can enrich a clinician’s ability to improve outcomes for clients with trauma and eating disorders.
