    Cultural Awareness Training
    Kimberley Lamothe, Nikita Corbiere, and Sarah Beardy | Nogojiwanong Friendship Centre

    The CAT (Cultural Awareness Training) sessions are meant to provide an awareness about Indigenous people in Canada. Participants will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge, skills of the history, experiences, and events which have influenced the relationship of Indigenous people in Canada.

    The Indigenous population in Canada is the fastest growing population, the youngest, but also the most overrepresented population in the justice and child welfare systems. The goal of this workshop is to develop a knowledge base on Indigenous lived experiences and be able to support those individuals who are seeking your help and/or support.

    Beyond the Basics: Meaningfully Engaging People with Lived Experiences
    Brittany Cameron and Becky Lyon | PARN

    People living with, affected by, and at risk of HIV and Hepatitis C play an increasingly important role in the development and delivery of programs, interventions, and services designed to meet their needs. Join us as we learn about HIV and Hep C beyond the basics.

    We present the idea of task shifting at your workplace, within the framework of meaningful engagement of people with lived experience. Recognizing that health and community development are interlinked, task shifting seeks to improve access to services for our community. In a redistribution of tasks, we discuss the role of peers to support this process and assist in returning to the core principles of health services that are accessible and equitable. This training seeks to further support the inclusion of diverse voices as an integral part of reducing and eliminating transmission of HIV and Hep C, while supporting better overall health outcomes in our communities. Topics covered include peer engagement as related to prevention, transmission, testing, treatment, and outreach programming.

    This training will affirm the overwhelming value and benefit of engaging people with lived experiences to expand standard programming. This framework can be applied in an innovative, respectful, and equitable manner, while concurrently encouraging collaborative partnerships between service providers in order to achieve effective service delivery.

    Trauma Informed Care and Resiliency
    Lisa Clarke | Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre
    Mandy Hamu | YWCA Peterborough Haliburton

    We will begin this three-hour workshop exploring the Adverse Childhood Experiences study, using Sexual and Gender-Based Violence as an example of trauma. We will delve into the impacts of trauma on neurobiology, and discuss how science helps us understand symptoms of trauma in new ways. We will then look at Trauma- and Violence-Informed Care as a universal precaution that helps us to meet the needs of patients and clients more effectively. Using the newest research in Resiliency, we will demonstrate specific client or patient skills building that can be nurtured through a Trauma- and Violence-Informed Practice. We end this workshop with practical information about local resources and referrals.

    This course is distinct from but complementary to First Stage Trauma Treatment (FSTT).
