CERIC is partnering with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) for the first time to offer a new webinar series on Intergenerational Trauma: Context, Impacts and Trauma-Informed Practices for Career Practitioners, starting this November. The webinars will be presented by Seanna Quressette of Douglas College and Tina-Marie Christian, a member of the Syilx Nation.

This new webinar series comes in response to our Trauma-Informed Career Development series held this past spring and the need expressed by career practitioners to deepen their understanding around intergenerational trauma.

The series will explore intergenerational trauma, particularly its impacts on Indigenous jobseekers, in both the historical context and present-day realities. The two presenters will share their expertise in trauma and career development as well as their experience working with Indigenous peoples.

This 3-part series includes:

  • Webinar #1: Intergenerational Trauma: A Career Development Context
    Thursday, November 14, 2019 | 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET
  • Webinar #2: Intergenerational Trauma Impacts on Individuals and Communities
    Thursday, November 21, 2019 | 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET
  • Webinar #3: Intergenerational Trauma: Trauma-Informed Best Practices
    Thursday, November 28, 2019 | 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET

The cost for the full series is $159. A discount is available for members of the CCPA.
