THERAPIST TALKING CIRCLES: “The talking circle is a traditional way for Native American people to solve problems.It is a very effective way to remove barriers and to allow people to express themselves with complete freedom.”
Joanne was involved in monthly talking circles with the women from Morley and Cochrane between 1999 and 2001. She is offering to organize and facilitate these circles for psychologists, social workers and other mental health professionals practicing in the Calgary area. Talking circles will be held the 3rd Wednesday of every month with 6-8 participants per meeting.
Addressing the need for professionals working in the mental health field to find ways to support their own mental health needs is a critical area that needs to be addressed.
From Joanne: “Participating in the talking circles offered me an opportunity to share whatever personal stressors were in my life at that time and to share in the journey of others and honor their stories. Talking circles are not to take the place of individual therapy but offer a place to be heard and recognized. My decision to facilitate talking circles for therapists in my community was based on the need for all of us to have a place to share outside the boundaries of the supervision relationship.”
To participate in an upcoming Talking Circle through Sundancer Psychological Services contact Joanne at 587-437-9019. A donation for any facility cost and an identified charity for that week is requested.
