Taking Care: Strategies to Support Self-Regulation and Resilience
The metaphor of the Airlines safety measure “Put your oxygen mask on first so you can help others” has never carried more meaning than now, whether you are on the front lines providing an essential service, working in your office or working remotely from your home.

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.
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.
