Title: Pisimweyapiy Counselling Centre

Project Description:
The Pismweyapiy Counselling Centre proposes to address the legacy of Physical and Sexual Abuse in Residential Schools Including Intergenerational Impacts utilizing traditional and contemporary practices.  It will offer a community-based nine (9) week, two phase outpatient counselling service.  There will be new intakes of up to 15 participants every 10 weeks which will entail individual and family therapy plus structured group sessions to assist in addressing unresolved and untreated grief characteristics of posttraumatic stress disorder.  The first four weeks of the program address the healing and wellness of residential school survivors before incorporating their family and the community in the final four weeks of programming.
