Master of Social Work in Indigenous Trauma and Resiliency
The Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto,
Middelton-Moz Institute and the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres
The Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto has launched an important new field in partnership with the Middelton-Moz Institute and the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres (OFIFC).
The Master of Social Work in Indigenous Trauma and Resiliency (ITR) was created when the OFIFC and the Middelton-Moz Institute approached the Faculty, suggesting a unique collaboration to develop capacity in indigenous communities.
As the first of its kind in North America, this two-year Master’s program is dedicated to preparing advanced social work professionals to work with individuals, families and communities who have been affected by historical and generational trauma. It focuses on theoretical knowledge, personal development and skill-building through face-to-face week-long courses, online distance learning and field placements.
Grounded in the North American Indigenous values of belonging, cooperation, respect and kindness, and inspired by indigenous traditions from around the globe, the ITR emphasizes at all times the strong connection between personal, cultural, professional, and academic development, and the importance of building on existing strength and resilience.
