Traditional Healing Methods
This program emphasizes traditional healing methods and provides students with the unique opportunity to develop self-awareness and the mental and spiritual healing so often needed by care givers. An appreciation for native culture and the uniqueness of being a native person are combined with studies to develop specific knowledge and skills in the use of traditional healing methods in the counselling of Native people.
The program utilizes existing courses of study within the General Arts and Science program, as well as some which have been especially tailored for Aboriginal student's learning styles and need to explore their heritage. A special feature of the program is the College's support system for Native students, which includes the Aboriginal counselor.
Graduates are well prepared for positions in mental health services and social services, or as community health representatives, in native community settings, on or off reserves.
OSSD with the majority of courses at the College (C), University (U), University/College (M) or Open (O) level qualify for admission to this program.
Mature students - See Admission Procedures for details.
Employers who provide our field placement settings require a clear POLICE RECORD CHECK for criminal offences with vulnerable sector screening before accepting a student into the field placement setting. The record check MUST be obtained by the student at the student's expense. If you are unable to obtain this police clearance by mid September, you jeopardize the opportunity to complete either of your field placements.
