Impacts of Historical Trauma & Colonization Workshop A powerful experiential workshop to help educate service providers of the collective trauma that has impacted Native people throughout North America’s history. After understanding that a collective trauma exists, participants will better understand how the feelings such as; fear, shame, learned helplessness, and anger began to infiltrate into Native communities and led to the disempowering behaviors and social conditions that we see today. With this change in perception, by having experienced these impacts during the workshop, participants will have an accurate understanding of why Native people see, think, feel and behave the way they do. As a result, service providers will be better prepared to effectively communicate and empower the Native members of their communities.
