Please join us in a conversation around Safety Planning for Domestic Violence in First Nations communities using the Medicine Bundle.
Corinne Stone returns to UBC Learning Circle to discuss the purpose of the Healing Path Medicine Bundle. This workshop is for workers and community members who would like to assist in ongoing efforts to address family violence and its impact on individuals, families, and communities. Corinne will also speak to the obvious challenges that not only health care workers, counsellors, family members, friends, but especially the victims of abuse face when leaving an abusive relationship.
In this session you will learn:
- Understanding the roots of interpersonal violence
- How to recognize the harm of interpersonal violence
- Historical factors
- What to do in a crisis situation
- How to use the medicine bundle
- Individual, family & community healing
You can’t control abusive behavior but you can take steps to teach self-protection from harm. Assist in taking strides in creating a safety plan whether she/he decides to stay in the relationship or leave.
A safety plan is a personalized and practical plan for reducing risk of being hurt. by thinking through it in advance, a safety plan can help avoid dangerous situations and know th ebest way to reach when one is in danger
