This conference brings together practitioners from across North America to share how AFOT has contributed to health and wellness in their communities over the past 25 years.

We invite you to join us in this unique opportunity to share and learn about one of the most innovative and celebrated clinical practices developed in Canada by Aboriginal peoples for Aboriginal peoples. Using a decolonial framework and tools, AFOT supports survivors of residential school, child abuse, intergenerational violence and trauma.

Engage directly with practitioners and AFOT’s pioneer and founder, Shirley Turcotte, in exploring Aboriginal Focusing-Oriented therapy as a clinical and land-based approach for moving towards wellness and reconciliation in your work and community.
