Indigenous Cultural Safety for Family Support Agencies: October 2022
This workshop hosted by the BC Council for Families will provide a deep understanding of the origins, definition, foundational concepts, and current relevant applications of Indigenous Cultural Safety (ICS)which in turn can assist an organization to increase its capacity to incorporate ICS practices for working with partners, Indigenous partners and clients specifically and among staff.
Participants will be lead through interactive whole group and small group discussions and introspective exercises this workshop builds on foundational concepts of ICS such as Relational Practice, Understanding and addressing oppressive systems, so that participants together merge what is meaningful to an individual’s service provision practice and what might be relevant to their unique organizational settings. This can assist in an organization’s commitment to address issues such as systemic racism and increase its Cultural Safety capacity including working toward reconciliation as outlined by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) on Indian Residential Schools.
