The Weight Of It All: Understanding Indirect Trauma for Helpers

As helpers, we stay in the room when others leave.  The nature of helping means that we will be affected by the work we do – the relationships we build bring us joy and growth along with pain and trauma.  Experience and research have taught us that we will all be impacted by our work as helpers and sometimes we will struggle with our work and our lives.

 

Taking Care: Strategies to Support Self-Regulation and Resilience

Working with Multicultural Families Experiencing Family Violence

Presented by: Tigist Dafla, Funke Olokude

Participants developed a better understanding of the migration pathways, settlement challenges, and significance of immigration status of immigrant and refugee families. This workshop also provided participants with opportunity to examine culture and power dynamics in these families.

Understanding PTSD, Trauma and Supporting Resilience in Affected Newcomers

Presented by: Karin Linschoten

This workshop focused on giving a better understanding of trauma and post-traumatic stress and challenges that immigrant and refugee families and youth face as they settle in Canada.

Unpacking Hate Crime: Hate, Bias, and Community Expectations

Presented by: Irfan Chaudhry 

This workshop focused on the distinction between hate crimes and hate incidents in Canada. While both hate crimes and incidents impact the community, police services are limited in their involvement with hate incidents (due to their non-criminal nature). This often creates confusion, mistrust, and feelings of resentment between communities impacted by hate and the police.
