Course Description

This course embraces the vision of Etuaptmumk – Two Eyed Seeing. Culturally adapting cognitive therapy techniques for Indigenous populations, this innovative course will teach all the foundational techniques of cognitive behaviour therapy within cultural content, such as cultural legends, stories, values and traditional knowledge (nature based, experiential, Indigenous spirituality). The focus of adaptation will be Anishinaabe (Ojibwe), Nehiyawak (Cree) and Haudenosaunee (Iroquois). This course has been developed by an Anishinaabe cognitive therapist.

Participants in the online CBT courses should plan on four to seven hours per week dedicated to readings, discussions and assignments. 

There are no required textbooks for this course. All required material will be provided during the course.
