The Journey Home ALIGN Training Session for FOCS Trainers facilitated by Frank Shannon and Beverly Keeshig-Soonia March 12, 2021

The video, “Journey Home explores healing Indigenous children in the Canadian child welfare system. ALIGN invites all Foundation of Caregiver Support (FOCS) Trainers to come together virtually to watch the “The Journey Home”, a 25-minute film designed to train caregivers and reflect on what this means for caregiver training. This session will be facilitated by Frank Shannon and Beverly Keeshig-Soonia, March 12, 2021 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm via virtual zoom platform.The session is intended to model the concept of keeping people “in a range of resilience” throughout the viewing of – the film itself and the facilitation approach. It is important that a safe place is provided to reflect and share observations about heavy topics without leaving people activated and disassociated. The post-viewing discussion is intended for reflection on the film in a more interactive and relational approach than watching it alone.
