Historical Trauma Workshop on Feb. 13-14, 2019

December 31, 2018

As we transition from Christmas to the New Year, we are excited to share that Sioux Falls Seminary and Sioux Falls Psychological Services will once again partner with NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community in 2019 for a two-day workshop.  This year’s event will focus on the topic of historical trauma.

Join us on Wednesday and Thursday, February 13-14, as we come together at Sioux Falls Seminary for two days of dialogue on hurt, healing, and hope among our Indigenous people. Attendees will discover what trauma-informed psychological and spiritual care looks like, or could look like, in Indigenous contexts and learn about perspectives and methods of spiritual care that are informed by an Indigenous understanding of theology and psychology.

The workshop will include presentations by Diane Campeau, Terry LeBlanc, and Linda and Rick Martin and incorporate talking circles, traditional contextualized forms of worship, and large group dialogue.

Terry LeBlanc, Director of NAIITS, adds, “…Indigenous and non-Indigenous practitioners, together having a vast wealth of experience, will lead us into an exploration of the critical importance of ministry that is trauma-informed and compassionately framed. Come and explore this profoundly important need in ministry with Indigenous people. You’ll be transformed and better equipped as a result. See you there.”

The workshop is a great fit for Indigenous people, Indigenous people involved in ministry with Indigenous people, non-Indigenous individuals involved in ministry with Indigenous people, seminary students, and anyone with a desire to learn more about the issue of trauma and its impact on Indigenous populations across North America.
