SummaryThis oral presentation describes the content and process of The Seven Teachings and Growth After Trauma workshop. It will describe how a Spiritual Helper first discusses the Seven Teachings with workshop participants and then further how the Teachings guide participants in trauma awareness and integra- tion. Expression of emotional content is facilitated through art exercises. It has been an honour to present the workshop in the communities of Pays Plat First Nation, Pic Mobert First Nation, Michipicoten First Nation and Bigtgong Nishnaabeg. Feedback from participants reveals the importance of integrating tradi- tional practises with contemporary therapeutic interventions. The workshop runs for three full days with a fourth day offered for individual follow up.
