Decolonizing our Counselling Services: Study Group and Brave Space Agreement

March 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

 

Join the Best Practices Network for a webinar with Amy Kheong, Executive Director of Counselling and Wellness, and Johnny Liu, Clinical Counsellor, from the Emily Carr University of Art + Design.

After the murder of George Floyd and the ongoing violence faced by Indigenous Peoples, they saw a spike in the number of students presenting with inter-generational and racial trauma. To better support their BIPOC students, the counselling team formed a study group aimed at decolonizing their counselling practices. In this session, Amy and Johnny will share the Brave Space Agreement they adopted and the process they undertook to examine their biases and privileges and educate themselves on the history and lived experiences of Black, Indigenous, and marginalized and racialized groups.

This webinar is part of our Conversation Series: Advancing Decolonization and Indigenization in Post-Secondary Student Mental Health and Wellbeing. This series is a national conversation on how post-secondary institutions can advance their decolonization efforts.
