Indigenous Healing and Psychotherapy Workshop

Indigenous Healing and Psychotherapy Workshop

Indigenous Healing and Psychotherapy

Date: Friday, 14 Jun 2024 at 09:00

Cost: R550.00

4 CPD HPCSA Clinical points

This presentation is based on an understanding of indigenous healing and also understanding the western perspective of how the two merge and also on how they can also be so different. In understanding indigenous healing we also get to understand our black patients and how they navigate their lifestyle and well being. While working with the self in psychotherapy we also need to learn on what healing entails for our black patients. The purpose of the workshop is to assist psychotherapists to develop a deeper understanding of Indigenous African people’s world view and how that might have a bearing on how they deal with life events including death, dying and grief.

CEP Divisional Webinar: Art-Based Perceptual Ecology – an integrative approach to address critical bio-social issues

Topic: Art-Based Perceptual Ecology – an integrative approach to address critical bio-social issues.

Presenter: Dr Lee Ann Woolery (Citizen Artist Founder and Research Director)

Date: Monday, 20 May at 18h00

About this webinar:

Art-Based Perceptual Ecology (ABPE) is a transdisciplinary research methodology grounded in multimodal knowledge systems, sensory-based learning, and framed within biological and ecological principals, designed to study changes in ecological systems and address some of our most critical bio-social issues. Honoring multiple ways of knowing and hosting an expansive toolkit, disciplined practices that include embodied exploration, artmaking, and storytelling, ABPE acts as a bridge to connect places and people, creating a platform for underrepresented populations to be heard, with opportunities to transform science and policy. One ABPE project among others to be discussed is The Litmus Test Dress: A participatory research project exploring art-based discourse applicable to public environmental policy on global water initiatives that addresses issues of inequity in access and availability to potable water. Widely accessible for multigenerational and multicultural populations, no art or science background or skills are needed to participate in ABPE. www.citizen-artist.com

Registration should be completed via Zoom.
