Spring Grief Training Programs with Edu-Therapy

Edu-Therapy

BUILDING SUSTAINABLE MENTAL WELLNESS THROUGH INTEGRATED TREATMENT AND TRAINING

A Cognitive Behavioral Model of Grief Resolution

Edu-Therapy in  First Nations, Métis and Inuit Communities

Grief and possible traumas negatively effect our lives. Coming in waves, they have a cumulative effect that, if not acknowledged and treated, inhibits our ability to integrate in healthy ways and will continue to repeat themselves.

Physical reactions include:

  • Numbness
  • Separation
  • Disengagement
  • Hyperactivity
  • Removal

Communities prepared with the Edu-Therapy Process are stronger and more resilient. We are all stakeholders of the collective grief and trauma experience. The Edu-Therapy Process creates a safe place to acknowledge, accept and integrate pain resolution processes-creating resiliency and long term healing.

Grief Edu-Therapy Training Programs

April 16-19 – Saskatoon, SK

April 29-May 2 – Winnipeg, MB

May 14-17 – Edmonton, AB

ALSO AVAILABLE!

Virtual Training and Private Community Based Certification and Treatment Programs
