A supportive consultation series facilitated by Karine Silverwoman

The Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic invites you to be a part of a virtual consultation series to connect with others in the sector and to deepen your trauma-informed practice.

Please join Karine Silverwoman, the Clinic’s Director of Counselling, to discuss the challenges you currently face with work during this challenging period in time.

Karine will draw from other people’s wisdom and provide support around issues like safety planning, self-care and trauma-informed practices.


Please note The free sessions are limited to 15-20 participants. Only one ticket is available per participant. The sessions are intended for front-line service providers and managers working in the gender-based violence sector. You will receive a Zoom invitation closer to the date, to participate. Due to the sensitive nature of the topics discussed, and to protect the privacy of those sharing the information, the webinars will not be available to view following the session.  Handouts are available for each, following the seminar.

Each week will offer a different theme.
