SFNFCI is pleased to bring you the following training provided by the Crisis & Trauma Resource Institute (CTRI). This workshop is an on-demand training that can be completed within 60 days of sign in. All registered participants will receive access by email address.




At its core, lateral violence is misdirected anger. It causes us to harm others based on what’s been done to us by someone else. This can cause a complex web of infighting that damages relationships, organizations, and communities.

But it is possible to break the cycle of lateral violence through lateral kindness.

Lateral kindness is based on Indigenous values that create healthier relationships, such as respect and fairness. In this workshop, you will explore the impacts of lateral violence and learn practical steps for conflict resolution to help stop the cycle. You will improve your personal awareness and communication skills so you can practice lateral kindness and resolve conflict, repair relationships, and prevent lateral violence.
