Shelter Worker Training in Athabasca

On August 7 and 8th 2019, SFNFCI held a 2 day Grief and Loss training for Shelter Workers in Stony Rapids, SK. 

This two-day course is designed to introduce participants to the role of the group home worker in providing grief and loss support to clients, children, and youth. Participants will demonstrate knowledge and skills to support shelter residents who may be experiencing grief and loss. Participants will also examine their own grieving process and the importance of modelling positive, healthy grief and loss recovery for others.


On August 9th 2019, SFNFCI held a one day training, Engaging Residents using Therapeutic Interventions in Stony Rapids, Sk for Shelter Workers. 

This one-day course focuses on multiple ways of engaging residents to assist in creating healthy, safe, and helping environments. Participants will learn about the goal of therapeutic interventions, some basic interventions such as art therapy, play therapy, and animal therapy, and how these can be beneficial for engaging residents and their children in their well-being and in making positive changes. We recognize the impact of the major life change the residents have made for themselves and their children; we are aware they are vulnerable as they have transitioned to create a safer life for themselves. The Participants will have an opportunity to discuss and practice skills in the promotion of well-being.
