|The WBP provides psycho-educational, or community-building workshops for community education. The goals are: empowering Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf-Blind for life skills development and self-improvement; providing access to information community members wouldn't have otherwise in the mental health area. We choose workshop topics requested by community members in surveys.
Examples of topics and workshop titles we have provided in the past have included: anger management, understanding depression, what is stress, eating, and your feelings, understanding suicide, mood disorders: anxiety, depression & bipolar, yoga & relaxation, journal-writing, drug & alcohol problems in your community (how you can help). We additionally provide workshops along the theme of healthy community development, examples are: Oppression; Conflict Resolution; Forgiving, Letting Go & Moving On; Deaf Culture In-Depth (Deafhood); The Four Agreements (don Miguel Ruiz) - A Deaf-friendly Book Interpretation; Racism & Diversity.
All presentations are provided in ASL (American Sign Language) and interpreters will be provided if the presenter is a hearing person.
We also provide interpreting for a wide range of needs.
Workshops for the Fraser Valley region are provided at: Clearbrook Library, 32320 George Ferguson Way, Abbotsford. Need more information? E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for Lisa Anderson, Workshop Coordinator.
