She also works with the response-based team to develop appropriate analysis and intervention for violence in society and in families, particularly men's violence against women, against children and the responses to this violence. This work has applications in sectors such as child welfare, the transition house and refuge movement, research, justice and therapy. Cathy is a family/psychotherapist with a private practice at the Sedona Centre in Montreal. She specializes in supporting Indigenous people in relation to colonization and racism as well as working more generally with individuals, couples and families.

COURSE PROGRAM
Dignity: The Beating Heart of Social Life
8.07.2024

1
Stage
We will discuss (1) how people work to preserve and reassert their own and others' dignity in the face of violence and other forms of humiliation, (2) the connection between the tactics of resistance and the strategies of violence, (3) the importance of dignity as a guide for working with victims/survivors and perpetrators of violence.
Name
Violence & Language:
22.07.2024
2
Stage
The sensitive use of accurate language is essential to interventions in cases of violence, especially, because violence is so often obscured or completely concealed. We will discuss (1) the connection between colonial contexts and the language used in relation to interpersonal violence, (2) the distinction between the language of responses and the language of effects, and (3) the distinction between unilateral and mutual language.
Name
Men for Dignity and Justice:
05.08.2024
3
Stage
With few exceptions, people who commit violence are capable of fully and consistently respectful behaviour before we meet them. We will discuss (1) interviewing practices using accurate language and highlighting the pre-existing capacities of perpetrators of violence, (2) making therapeutic use of excuses and justifications, ((3) finding deliberation and control through analysis of social interactions, and (4) upholding the dignity of people who commit violence through individual and group practices.
Name
Children are Social Actors:
19.08.2024
4
Stage
Name
Children are no less likely to respond to, and resist, violence than are adults. Careful analysis of children's responses and resistance to violence requires that we re-examine common cultural notions of childhood itself. We will present (1) detailed examples of children's responses, (2) show how such responses are often ignored or pathologized in conventional mental health practices, such as "trauma informed practice", and (3) provide a simple and accessible tool for exploring children's concerns, hopes, and responses to adverse events, including violence.
