The Walking the Prevention Circle program

Walking the Prevention Circle acknowledges the wholeness, history, light, darkness, challenges and potential of First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples and communities. From the cycle of violence to the circle of healing, Walking the Prevention Circle recognizes the inter-connectedness of these opposing realities. Through this recognition, growth and change occur. The circle starts with awareness and moves to prevention.
Walking the Prevention Circle educates adults living in or working with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities on how to recognize and prevent violence against children and youth.
First Nations, Métis and Inuit people and communities across Canada have guided the development of Walking the Prevention Circle and have identified their needs and the necessary components to address health and relationship issues.
The presentation explores:
  • The issue of violence against children and youth
  • Abuse from a historical context
  • The different types of abuse and neglect, their indicators and impact on children and youth
  • How to respond to disclosures, and the required legal reporting process
  • Primary prevention and safe environments for individuals, organizations and communities.
