NATOA

4th Annual Indigenous Trust and Investment Conference and Annual General Meeting to be held on June 1 & 2, 2017 in Vancouver, BC

November 22, 2016 – Toronto, ON – The National Aboriginal Trust Officers Association (NATOA) is excited to announce the 4th Annual Indigenous Trust and Investment Conference and Annual General Meeting that will take place at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel on June 1 & 2, 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

NATOA is thrilled to host another successful Trust and Investment Conference. The 2-day event is designed to provide an informative and interactive venue for all those involved with Aboriginal Trusts. Speakers will represent both the Aboriginal Communities who have established, or in the process of establishing, and maintained successful Trust operations, and members of the Corporate Industry that effectively service these Communities.

“NATOA’s mandate is ‘Created By The Indigenous People, For The Indigenous People’,” says Mark Sevestre, President of NATOA. “The 2017 Trust and Investment Conference will be aimed at providing Aboriginal Communities with the comfort and confidence of making informed decisions for their Trust and Investment operations. Participants will have opportunities to explore the Aboriginal Trust and Investment Industry; develop an understanding of the background, evolution and complexities of Aboriginal Trusts; learn how to identify your needs and those you may work with to help manage vital Community assets; and network and develop relationships among the nation’s leaders in the Trust Investment Community.”

Grief and the conflicting emotions caused by loss are cumulative and most often have a cumulatively negative effect on our ability to participate in life. The primary goal of Edu-Therapy™ is to give people a solution to the pain, and focus on a solution-oriented

process to rediscover their ability to fully experience and participate in their lives. Edu-Therapy™ effectively eliminates the griever’s sense of isolation, by actively engaging them in emotionally helpful and liberating exercises. The Grief Edu-Therapy Certification is

a unique training program that teaches the specific tools to eliminate the emotional pain caused by loss of any type. For over 35 years, the care giving team at Edu-Therapy Solutions have been helping grievers rid themselves of the conflicting emotions and the often overwhelming pain as the result of cumulative unresolved losses. Our commitment to research and evidence-based solutions goes far beyond the short term “feel good” workshops, giving participants the ability to help themselves and help their community.

You will learn:

·    Dysfunctional ways people mishandle grief and its intergenerational effect on Communities

·    Emotional damage of rationalization and intellectualization

·    Why Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance Models are the wrong approach for grievers

·    Learn proper techniques for identifying and resolving loss and relationship conflicts

·    Edu-Therapy™ Process formats for individual and group work

·    How to expand your caregiving agency using the Edu-Therapy™ Process

·    How to resolve cumulative unresolved issues such as PTS and the Residential School Experience, abuse and trauma
