HEALING JOURNEY Healing is the crucial step linking truth and reconciliation. At ARCH, we use healing practices which are compatible with Aboriginal culture and teachings. These practices feel “right” to survivors and their families. They result in positive changes in peoples lives.
Services to the Aboriginal/First Nation Community ARCH   has   a   long   history   of   working   with   Aboriginal   people.   From   our   beginning   in   1987,   we have   seen   many   indigenous   clients   and   have   been   involved   in   many   First   Nation   communities. In   1997,we   began   to   work   with   an   advisory   group   to   develop   “Healing   Together:   Our   Sacred Journey   - An   Integrated   Sexual Abuse   Intervention   and   Healing   Program”   across   North   Central Alberta. Our   psychologists   are   registered   under   the   Non-Insured   Health   Benefit   Program   (NIHB)   as   well as   the   Indian   Residential   Schools   Residential   Health   Support   Program   (IRS   RHSP).   These programs   are   funded   by   Health   Canada.   Under   the   first   program,   you   need   to   have   “treaty status”   to   receive   psychological   therapy.   The   second   program   provides   psychological   supports for   former   Indian   Residential   School   (IRS)   students,   or   their   family   members.   Since   this   is funded   by   Health   Canada,   if   you   fall   under   either   of   these   programs,   you   receive   psychological services free of cost.
Working with Residential School Survivors and their Families Disruption   of   Aboriginal   family   life   and   the   loss   of   traditional   values   were   a   legacy   of   the   Residential   Schools.   This   resulted   in   widespread   emotional, psychological,   spiritual   and   social   injuries   which   further   lead   to   numerous   dysfunctional   coping   mechanisms.   ARCH   takes   a   holistic   approach   to   dealing   with symptoms   like   addictions,   domestic   violence,   sexual   offending   and   other   forms   of   abuse   of   self   or   others.   We   see   the   underlying   causes   and   the   need   to   get   to   the core of the issue. ARCH Psychologists have also worked onsite in various First Nation Communities. ARCH   has   a   deep   respect   for Aboriginal   values   and   culture. We   are   committed   to   working   with   you   and   to   staying   with   the   healing   process   for   as   long   as   it   takes. We offer a non-judgemental, respectful and safe space within which you can explore your unique experiences and the impacts they had on you.
