NATOA

November 20, 2017 – Toronto, ON – The National Aboriginal Trust Officers Association (NATOA) is excited to announce the 5th Annual Indigenous Trust and Investment Conference and Annual General Meeting that will take place at The Banff Centre on May 23-24, 2018 in Banff, Alberta.

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 Indigenous 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.

“We all have the opportunity to make decisions that affect our future generations to come,” says Mark Sevestre, President of NATOA. “From the short-term needs of current population to the longer-term goals of economic prosperity, healthy opportunities and education reflect traditional and cultural values. The 2018 NATOA National Indigenous Trust and Investment Conference will provide valuable information on how some of our communities have been able to implement successful strategies that provide great benefit to their people. From Responsible Investment decisions that impact our environment and traditional lands, to the Indigenous rights we hold in such high regard to the day to day management of our Trust funds, this conference will help participants ensure their community will be set on the

proper path for success. Set in the beautiful traditional lands of the Kootenay, Stoney, Blood, Peigan, Siksika and Tsuu T’ina peoples, the Banff environment will be a relaxing and educational experience.”

Edu-Therapy Solutions

Grief and the conflicting emotions caused by loss are cumulative and most often have a growing negative effect on our ability to participate in life. The primary goal of Edu-Therapy™ is to give participants a stable cognitive process to continue to help themselves and their Community with on-going support for 5 years from Edu-Therapy Support. As Physical Care Costs escalate often, Mental Health needs are neglected. Once Certified as an Edu-Therapy Specialist in as little as 6 hours per week, one specialist can bring Mental Resolution of the pain and sadness caused by loss to over 200 people per year. Trained teams can escalate these numbers adding to the resiliency of the Community as people begin to heal at less than the cost of a trip to the ER where little to no emotional care is given.

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 Edu-Therapy™
  • How to resolve cumulative unresolved issues such as PTS and the Residential School Experience, abuse and trauma
  • How to deal with what’s known and what’s not … when someone goes missing (Ambiguous Loss)
  • Humans grieve loss or change of anything held significant
  • Grief is not reserved for death related losses; nor is it an illness or mental disorder
  • Grief is an emotional experience that doesn’t follow stages or a timeline, and does not simply go away with time
  • It’s the actions within time that reduce and eliminate pain
  • Grief happens in many forms and has great potential to create emotional energy and negatively effect life:
    Death of a loved one
    • Ending of a relationship
    • Suicide of someone close
    • Adoption or foster care
    • Loss of culture
    • Change in career, finances or social status
    • Loss of health, trust and safety
