Trauma-informed practice essential for more than just educators

Kim Barthel delivered a fascinating workshop last week on trauma-informed practice that could impact the work of everyone who attended, including the six of us from the NWT Literacy Council.

We learned about how a person’s history can impact the DNA and behaviour of future generations, and how relationships are key to a learner’s success.

Probably more than one workshop participant wishes they had this kind of information earlier in their career. I know I did. The Department of Education, Culture and Employment hosted the workshop I attended. Kim delivered her message to justice and health workers as well while in Yellowknife.

Kim is an Occupational Therapist, perhaps best known for co-authoring a book with former NHL hockey player, Theo Fleury.

Doreen Reid works for the Department of Justice in Yellowknife. She put together a list of YouTube videos of Kim’s presentations and interviews. These are a great resource if you haven’t heard Kim speak in person, or just want more of Kim’s inspiring knowledge.
