Through the course, you will add to the bundle of gifts and knowledge that you carry in your work with Indigenous children, youth and families.
Woven into the 6 modules, Monique will share her personal journey, offer readings from her various books and together you will build a practice of hope and resilience.
This self-led course is for you if:
- You work with Indigenous children, youth and families.
- You want to develop your understanding of colonialism and how it impacts you and the people you work with.
- You want to start or deepen a journey of decolonizing in a gentle and inspiring way.
By the end of this course, you will:
- Recognize & identify how stress & trauma impact the wellness of those we work with and why we may see various behavioural disruptions and challenges in attachment, attention, and attunement. We will also explore tips for supporting these individuals.
- Deepen your knowledge of the truth. This includes increasing your awareness of federal, provincial and territorial legislation and policies that have and continue to impact Indigenous people and the relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
- Describe the historical role and importance of love and joy as it pertains to the raising up of children and working with Indigenous children, youth and families.
- Explore what Reconciliation means to you by developing your own personal definition, and identify action steps to weave the definition into your life.
- Be introduced to the Cultural Resilience Model Monique has created, the 4 Blankets of Resilience: Strong Sense of Self, Family, Community, Culture and Language. This will include choosing one of the Blankets to weave into your everyday ways of being, learning and doing.
Looking forward to this journey with you!
