Special Guest: Arranging Pretty: Piecing Together Meaningful Rehabilitation Relationships

Lisa Boivin PhD Candidate

Join Dene Artist Lisa Boivin for a visually interactive presentation. Lisa uses the Indigenous methodology of collage to respond to the dearth of Indigenous content in rehabilitation science. While there is, literature revealing clinical barriers caused by colonialism, intergenerational trauma and a lack of cultural safety it is incomplete because it does not offer strength-based narratives that authentically reflect the identity of Indigenous people. Lisa will confront some of the colonial clinical problems that arise in rehabilitation and offer Indigenous teachings to resolve them.

Dec 3, 2020 06:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
