Join international expert Dr. Martin Brokenleg, co-author of the book Reclaiming Youth at Risk: Our Hope for the Future and co-developer of the Circle of Courage model in this special three part online series. Each part consists of 6 hours of online course materials. Format is 5 hours of lecture with 1 hour of Q&A discussion with Dr. Brokenleg.
Session 1 will lay the framework for understanding Indigenous culture and philosophies. Dr. Brokenleg will focus on the characteristics of traditional Indigenous beliefs and ways of life to help explain how historical social and cultural losses have impacted individuals, families and communities. This disruption to the transmission of culture and philosophies has profoundly affected identity, emotions and spirituality.
Furthermore, this loss of culture and philosophies continues to create problems that proliferate, resulting in a chain reaction of consequences on subsequent generations. Intergenerational trauma has wounded children and families deeply. Indigenous children and youth who are impacted by intergenerational trauma often receive help and support that only treat the symptoms. In many instances, professionals apply ineffective short term solutions to combat much deeper problems. Dr. Brokenleg will introduce strategies for understanding Indigenous meta-processes for living well in contemporary society.
Session 2 will identify intergenerational trauma and how to build resilience strategies among Indigenous peoples and other populations. Intergenerational trauma is a feature of life for people from a whole variety of cultural backgrounds and life experiences. The resilience strategies taught by Dr. Brokenleg are transferable to a wide range of clients. Dr. Brokenleg will discuss the social, emotional and cognitive impact. You will learn the importance of being trauma-informed in working with clients. Dr. Brokenleg draws from research and experiences of Indigenous cultures and will provide long-lasting solutions to build resiliency and manage trauma.
Session 3 will dive deeper into social and emotional learning in children and adolescents. Participants will learn how to utilize the Circle of Courage model for creating environments in which all young people can flourish in school and at home.The Circle of Courage will be taught as a model of resilience and method of explaining traditional Indigenous themes. Dr. Brokenleg will teach specific classroom management and parenting techniques.
