Gaining Cultural Competence Workshop

Facilitator Ainjil HuntTrauma from violence is a fact of life for most First Nations peoples. This intensive professional- development workshop will help workers in non-profit and government agencies, professionals and community members develop greater cultural competency for working with indigenous clients. The workshop will provide attendees with a fresh look at the complex context in which the victimization of First Nations people has occurred to better understand the multiple factors that influence relationships with First Nations people.
