3) Lack of compassion and continually being unkind. Participants are guided through exercises to understand and reverse the actual emotions behind the heartlessness displayed by the subject. 4) Having a negative, critical and unforgiving spirit which involved complaining, blaming and resentment. Participants are guided through exercises to uncover the underlying pain behind these behaviours. 5) A crippling sadness that led the subject to attempt suicide so that she could end it all. The subject’s own story is used to illustrate how to drive out the demons of suicide and hopelessness because she did go on to thrive and live a joyful life completely free of trauma, experiencing true happiness, true love and true joy. The story is instructive for Aboriginal Canadian Populations looking to understand intergenerational trauma through a lived experience and individuals from all walks of life who are interested in learning how to break the harmful consequences of their own childhood traumas from a survivor.

UNPACKING CHILDHOOD TRAUMA IN ABORIGINAL CANADIAN POPULATIONS.

Through a combination of conversations, individual sessions and group sessions offered in person and/or by skype, video conferencing and teleconferencing, facilitators and coaches guide participants to find similarities between traumas experienced by the subject and their own traumas and then learn ways to break the harmful consequences of these childhood traumas in their own lives. There is a self paced option but all the sessions are strength based and aimed at ending the painful cycle of intergenerational trauma, preventing childhood trauma and/or reversing the damages caused by childhood trauma. Experiencing acute shock, all sorts of upsets, disturbances, ordeals, suffering, pain, strain and distress as a child, the multi-layered trauma endured by the subject of the story who was emotionally damaged in the process manifested as crippling fear, rejection, shame, lack of self esteem, loneliness and numerous other feelings. 

The true life story of an Aboriginal Woman who herself survived one of Canada’s infamous Residential Schools for “Indians” and overcame the harmful consequences of intergenerational trauma arising from the abuse of her own parents in the same Residential Schools forms the basis for this series. Participants in the series explore how childhood trauma experienced by the subject’s parents led to the parents’ alcoholism, other addictions and dysfunctional behaviours like family violence, physical, verbal and emotional child abuse directed at the subject and her siblings, abandonment of the subject and her siblings as children, neglect, instability, lack of guidance, lack of positive role modelling and a very unhappy childhood, all of which resulted in profound childhood trauma experienced by the subject and her siblings.
