Understanding and Healing Lateral Violence from an Indigenous Perspective


This one day workshop provides insight into understanding and healing lateral violence and how it effects Indigenous communities.

Through the use of circle, group exercises and individual reflection, we explore the definition of lateral violence, contributing factors of abuse, characteristics of abuse, collective effects felt by Indigenous communities and groups, and how oppression is perpetuated.

The workshop concludes with an exploration and development of a toolbox to reduce lateral violence.
