My practicum placement took place at two non-profit organizations in Prince George, British Columbia. The first portion of my practicum took place at Surpassing Our Survival Society, which offers specialized counselling to people who have experienced sexual abuse. The second portion of my practicum took place at Central Interior Native Health Society, which is a multidisciplinary primary care team that assists primarily Aboriginal people, people who are living or close to living on the streets, and people who experience problems with alcohol and drug addiction. My objective within my practicum was to practice from a trauma informed perspective and to gain an understanding of how alternative therapies, such as arts based practices and group modalities, can be incorporated into various agencies.
