An Indigenous Approach to Emotional Competency

Aboriginal Gathering Place, New West Campus
March 24, 2017 9:00am – 4:00pm

In this workshop, Dr. Lee Brown will share a theory of holistic emotional education that he has developed over decades of work in more than five hundred Indigenous communities.  Dr. Brown’s approach is oriented to the regaining of emotional competencies and skills necessary to become competent people in mature and peaceful relationships. The importance of emotional competency in relation to personal, family and community health is discussed with an emphasis on recent scientific exploration of emotion, feeling and health. In addition, the workshop reviews traditional Elder’s teachings of heart knowledge as essential to a holistic orientation to emotional competency.
