CTRI – Trauma Informed Care for Kanaweyimik Staff

On January 30 & 31, 2020 Kanaweyimik staff and caregivers received training on Trauma Informed Care at the Western Development Museum in North Battleford. Kanaweyimik and SFNFCI are working on a disabilities project funded by Indigenous Services Canada.  Part of the intent of the project is to work with First Nations Child and Family Services to identify ways to increase awareness and understanding of disabilities.  There were a total of 15 participants who attended the 2 day training, facilitated by Noela Crowe-Salazar of Crisis & Trauma Resource Institute.


The training helps individuals how to build a trauma-informed culture in a workplace setting that integrates knowledge throughout the organization, develop an understanding of the pervasive impact of trauma on individual health and relationships. Guiding principles will be explored for increasing emotional and physical safety, culturally sensitive empowerment, and creating greater resilience for all parts of an organization. 


SFNFCI would like to thank the following: Elaine Baptiste, Kanaweyimik staff and caregivers for participating in the training.  The Western Development Museum for the wonderful services and of course Noela Crowe-Salazar for the great facilitation.
