Facilitator Kathi Camilleri, who works with the Cambpell River Aboriginal Outreach Team of Child and Youth Mental Health, hosts this workshop with communities and professionals near and far. I have been fortunate enough to take this workshop and highly recommend it. It is an experiential roll-play that cuts to the heart of our shared aboriginal and colonial past and explores how we may move forward through healing and understanding.
Cortes psychiatrist Donna Dryer will be available as support.
Blessings on your summer.
