Wholistic Healing Practices and Colonial Trauma Certificate, Module 5 "Indigenous Incarceration: Providing Trauma Informed Care" is developed and delivered by the Centre for Indigegogy. Colonialism, racism, sexism and the over-policing of Indigenous peoples are linked to alarming rates of incarceration of Indigenous peoples. We will discuss the experiences of Post-Traumatic Stress in relationship to the criminalization of Indigenous people and the trauma of incarceration. In this two-day module, participants will gain a better understanding of symptoms of PTSD and foster wholistic healing knowledge and compassion in working with peoples impacted by incarceration.
- Participants will leave with the understanding the colonial context of increasing incarceration rates of Indigenous Peoples’ (particularly Two-Spirit, queer, disabled Indigenous peoples’).
- A deeper knowledge of symptoms of PTSD and how to mitigate those symptoms in a correctional system that continues to cause harm.
- Skills in working with prisoners wholistically within the prison setting.
- Participants will develop skills to advocate for structural and institutional changes as well as advocacy skills for the rights of prisoners.
