Wholistic Healing Practices and Colonial Trauma Certificate

Are you an Indigenous or non-Indigenous practitioner working with Indigenous Peoples? Are you interested in practicing from a wholistic lens? Are you interested in what it means to decolonize and Indigenize trauma work in the context of the politics of colonialism? Then this Certificate is for you.

Understanding trauma from a decolonial lens is essential for practitioners working with Indigenous people. Decolonization means understanding the historical and present structural violence that is at the root of trauma in Indigenous communities. This certificate was developed with the desire to give practitioners & helpers the knowledge and skills to decolonize their practice while also offering wholistic healing practices.

To complete your certificate, participants must complete 84 hours. Three of the thirteen modules are core modules that must be taken although they do not need to be taken in order. The core modules are 1, 2 and 4.  Please contact us at indigegogy@wlu.ca if you have any questions.

In order to keep the Wholistic Healing Practices and Colonial Trauma Certificate affordable for community practitioners we have kept our programming fees lower than our other Certificates. Therefore, we are not offering discounts on this certificate.

Full refunds 2 weeks prior to each module will be allowed minus a 10% administrative fee.

If you are interested in registering for Module 1 - Wholistic Healing Practices and Colonial Trauma Certificate - that is taking place on Septmember 30th, please contact our program administrator, Raven Morand, at rmorand@wlu.ca
