This program emphasizes traditional healing methods and provides students with the unique opportunity to develop self-awareness and the mental and spiritual healing so often needed by care givers. An appreciation for native culture and the uniqueness of being a native person are combined with studies to develop specific knowledge and skills in the use of traditional healing methods in the counselling of Native people.

The program utilizes existing courses of study within the General Arts and Science program, as well as some which have been especially tailored for Aboriginal students learning styles and need to explore their heritage.
