Item Summary

Title: OUR LANGUAGE IS OUR HEALTH: CONNECTING LANGUAGE REVITALIZATION TO HEALTH OUTCOMES FOR INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES
Authors: Parker, Aliana
Gessner, Suzanne
Issue Date: 02 Mar 2017
Description: This workshop will collectively build an understanding of the signi cance of language maintenance and revitalization for Indigenous health and wellness. The presenters will share a case study of a program, currently in pilot phase in British Columbia, which both promotes mental health and supports language revitalization. The program supports la- tent speakers to overcome language blocks with the aid of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Workshop participants will engage in group brainstorming and discussion circles to develop a deeper understanding of the connections between language and health for both individuals and families, and to explore how the work of academics and language activ- ists can contribute to health outcomes.
