NE2SS: Two-Spirit Specific Training14
Contact: Harlan Pruden, gro.ss2en|gniniart#gro.ss2en|gniniart, (646) 351-7360.
Two-Spirit Then and Now: Reclaiming Our Place of Honor" enables participants working in behavioral health, mental health, substance/alcohol prevention and treatment centers and HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment programs to work more effectively with Two-Spirit people. This training comes in several formats: half-day, full day or intensive day and half training. The workshop provides participants, both Native and non-Native, with an opportunity to look at and discuss how historical trauma led to the dissolution of the role and the displacement of Two-Spirit people from their Native communities. The connection between the displacement of Two-Spirit people from their heritage, and who routinely experience stigma and discrimination in both Native and mainstream society, is presented and discussed in terms of the impact on their health and mental health risks, health disparities and recovery support needs. The workshop examines intervention and healing approaches that use traditional practices, including those that incorporated the special role of Two-Spirit people in traditional Native communities. The work of Dr. Joseph P. Gone and Dr. Alex Wilson on the integration of traditional practices, Two-Spirit identity and role affirmation, and current behavioral health interventions with examples of this work in Native treatment centers in Canada and USA are examined. Practice case studies to apply the knowledge gained from the training make this training an interactive and engaging workshop. Finally, the workshop also provides participants with resources for further learning and links to Two-Spirit organizations in Canada and USA.
