Aboriginal Liaison


The certification is in ‘focusing-oriented therapy’, and is delivered in partnership with the Justice Institute of BC. Focusing-Oriented Therapy (FOT) is a body-centred and person-centred approach to healing, developed three decades ago at the University of Chicago by Dr. Eugene Gendlin. FOT allows clients total control of the pace and the direction of their healing journey. It is particularly effective in the treatment and healing of complex trauma caused by accident, sexual, physical, emotional abuse or neglect. FOT has been especially well received in Aboriginal communities because of its humanistic, person-centred approach to healing, which reflects the core values of respect and non-interference.
