From Stilettos to Moccasins: A Guide for Group Discussion© is a half-day health intervention workshop, available at no cost to communities, which raises awareness about the role that cultural identity and stigma have in the healing journeys of criminalized First Nations, Métis and Inuit women in treatment for drug abuse.
The workshop is based on the key finding of the project, which is, to heal from drug abuse, there is a need for women to re-claim, and for some to claim for the first time, a healthy self-identity as an Aboriginal woman. The workshop is designed to be facilitated by community members with community members. (For more on the From Stilettos to Moccasins research project and music video, see an earlier post here).
Workshop kits are now available that include a 30-minute training video and all materials required to conduct a workshop. There are also 14 “project ambassadors” who have been hired from across Canada to assist with implementing the workshops.
