Support 4 Northern Kids – Emotional Suppression Article

 

 

Support 4 Northern Kids is an organization that supports youth in northern Ontario in order to promote healthy living and healthy communities. The main site offers information about services available, community events, and other resources.  I was specifically interested in the resource page and an article titled: “HEARTSONG: EXPLORING EMOTIONAL SUPPRESSION AND DISCONNECTION IN ABORIGINAL CANADA”. The article makes links between residential schools, community disruption and the emotional suppression that is commonplace in many aboriginal communities.  The article explores causes as well as traditional healing.
