March 23, 2021:  Allyship with First Nations Peoples - The purpose of this webinar is to offer BSP therapists a glimpse into the realities of working with the First Nations Population, and what as therapists we may do to offer services that are both respectful and more congruent with the needs presented.  The Webinar will first address the history of First Nations Peoples by touching upon The Indian Act, Reserves, and Residential Schools as a backdrop to the sad realities and truths that colonization has had on First Nations People. The critical importance of attunement within and across cultures will then be discussed as attunement remains central not only to Brainspotting as a therapy, but to the effective understanding and healing within the therapeutic relationship.  Attention will then turn to sharing on what allyship  can look like, offering BSP therapists ideas on how best to work with and learn from First Nations Peoples.  Presentation by Dr. Dell Ducharme, Allyson Coleman and Angie Dariou
