CRiHHI_AGerlach-FINALEarly Intervention with Indigenous Families & Children in   British Columbia : A critical inquiry

Presentation by Alison J Gerlach, PhD, MSc (OT), Assistant Clinical Professor, Dept. of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy, UBC

DATE: Thursday, January 14, 2016

TIME: 12:00 – 1:00 pm

VENUE: Room T206
UBC School of Nursing

Early childhood intervention (ECI) programs are increasingly recognized for their potential in promoting children’s health and well-being, and appear to be ideally positioned to play a vital role in fostering child health equity. Currently, there is a lack of research on ECI programs in the context of Indigenous families and children in Canada. This seminar will present the findings of a critical qualitative inquiry undertaken in partnership with the Aboriginal Infant Development Program (AIDP) of British Columbia.

Dr. Alison Gerlach is an occupational therapy-researcher who has worked for many years in partnership with Indigenous communities, organizations and colleagues on a shared agenda of promoting children’s health and wellbeing. Alison’s doctoral research is one of the few studies internationally that draws on critical theoretical perspectives and an ‘ an equity lens’ to examine how ECI can contribute towards fostering health equity for Indigenous infants and young children. The findings of this study have implications for all healthcare professionals working with Indigenous and non-Indigenous families and children who experience social disadvantages as a result of structural inequities.

CFP – The International Journal of Holistic Early Learning and Development

Posted on

A new, online, open access journal on holistic early learning and development will be the first and only online, open access journal on early learning in Canada, and one of just three worldwide.  It will also be the first online, open access early learning journal to incorporate both scholarly and non-scholarly contributions in multiple formats (research, reports, essays, reviews, photos, and poetry).
The first issue, to be published in January 2015, will be devoted to Aboriginal Ways of Knowing and Learning in Early Childhood. Attached is a call for contributions for the first and subsequent issues which also contains information about our upcoming International Spring Conference on Early Learning and Development (see:https://conferences.lakeheadu.ca/isceld/) which will be held at Lakehead University Orillia on May 1st and May 2nd, 2015.

For more information about the journal, please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can also visit the journal site at ijheld.lakeheadu.ca.
