INNOVATIVE TRADITIONAL PRACTICES
President: Catherine Swan Reimer, Ed. D.
"I am really excited about this training. I have years of experience in the Counseling world, student world, and Indian and Native world. The unconscious work of Jung was aligned with our people's way of doing things through stories and actual directed activities. So much of the counseling work is very "clean" and directed which is good but it is really directed to the conscious mind. Many of our people want to be talked to and worked with at a deeper level where they get it... "Ah ha!" experience. We must talk to clients in "their language". This is why stories, metaphors, directed cultural activities, and rituals are so promising and meaningful. This workshop is novel because it is planned it to GO THERE with the hope that even the dreams of our participant's become expanded and opened to new possibilities.
Please help us out by passing this on to other educators, mental health workers, and counselors who work with Alaska Natives and American Indians.
So take a journey and listen to the research but follow your ancestor's roots, memories, and deep recollections, and dreams and take home practical applications to use from Head Start to Old Age."
