'RURAL & Remote'
We know that working in small town, rural, remote and isolated areas carries unique burdens and challenges.  These gatherings will connect you with other folks 'Doing the Work' in similar settings.  We will honour your experience, share successes, strategies, tools and hope.

Much like a conference there will be presentations, workshops and forums, but this will be a gathering of caring, active folks with much conversing, sharing and connecting. And we will keep the conversation going after this gathering in ways chosen by you, the participants.
We are interested in bring a gathering or segments of it to your area.

Confirmed Highlights:

  • Exploring "Rural & Remote":  What are the unique challenges? What successes can be shared?
  • Trauma:  
    • Trauma:  Background, foundations, a general understanding, root causes.   
    • Trauma and the Client:  Understanding and becoming comfortable  with the various complex traumas (ex: attachment, cyclical abandonment, brain injury) that cause people to become stuck in addictions and other problems.
    • Healthy Worker/Workplace - Exploring he various emotional burdens of the work. Learn to distinguish and prevent vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue and burn out.
    • Healthy Community: Exploring ways to heal and maintain healthy communities.
  • Opioids: Very practical, helpful information on opiates and various interventions & therapies.
  • Your ideas:  We are open to hearing what issues you feel are important! Please call or email.


" We are seeking more input from our Aboriginal and Francophone brothers and sisters and Elders from these communities to help and guide us in this process of gathering and sharing information and the building of healthy relationships. During and after the gathering, we intend and encourage continued conversation to help in developing and supporting each other through partnerships and gatherings. Thank you. "
