The Trauma Resource Kit for Aboriginal Communities
The Trauma Resource Kit is developed to assist Aboriginal Communities who have been
impacted by the legacy of the Indian Residential School System.
Over 30% of aboriginal people suffer from post-traumatic stress. The symptoms are
strongly visible in many aboriginal communities.
The Trauma Resource Kit provides the necessary resource material to assist an Aboriginal
Community to address the core issue of many social problems and that is “TRAUMA”.
I have spent the last 10 years researching how trauma impacts the mind and the body, and
how it has an affect on his/her childhood, youth and adult life. I have worked with many
aboriginal survivors of trauma, to provide assistance and guidance as they work through
their healing.
The Resource Material has been used in the BC Aboriginal Restorative Health Project
provided by the BC Aboriginal Network on Disability and Funded by Health Canada.
The resource material has received excellent remarks in the evaluations that were
submitted in the Workshops.
The Trauma Resource Kit consists of the following material:

Biography of Gerald Kiesman (Author)
My name is Gerald Kiesman, I am Haida from Old Massett Village and
German from Ashern, Manitoba. I was born and raised in Prince Rupert, B.C.
In 1997, I started to confront a childhood traumatic experience. In 1998, I
recognized the need for an Exercise Book for people who have experienced
trauma. The book would be of assistance with counselor supervision. Most
importantly I also thought it would be important to develop a theory book on
understanding trauma and post-traumatic stress in lay-man’s term. As most
people, who experienced trauma may not be able to understand the acadamia
used in most books on trauma.
To do this I had to learn about what trauma was and how it impacted my
childhood, youth and adult life. To better understand trauma I had to also
explore how the childhood trauma impacted my mind and body.
I have spent 9 years researching how trauma travels through the mind and body and how it can be stored in
muscles and organs if not released by the way of a physical sensation. I also researched how post-trauma can
disrupt a person’s (behavior, feelings). I then spent the last year taking the books to the people to receive
feedback on the material in the books. In which, I have received nothing but excellent comments. I have
listened to the people and made the necessary changes to insure the guides are workable.
I have received Counselor training in Professional Counseling, Therapeutic Re-enactment, Somatic
Experience-Trauma Counseling, native healing ceremonies and I have also received a certificate for a level
12 delegation Training Coarse in Social Work.
Through my practical experience, I have provided assistance by the way of emotional support and counseling
too many former residential school students at Court/ADR Hearings, Gatherings, Federal Corrections and a
Healing lodge.
And most importantly I have had the opportunity to learn North Coast Traditional Healing methods,
practices and ceremonies with Chief Raymond Sietcher of the Nuu-chah-nulth Nation.
Through my personal life experience, work experience and researching about trauma I have developed this
fine Trauma Resource KIT to assist aboriginal nations who are in the pursuit to healing the legacy of the
Residential school system.
The books can be used by frontline workers in the Health, Social, Justice Professions and in the academic
field.

“A Basic Understanding of Trauma”
The book provides a in-depth view of how trauma travels
through the mind and body. Trauma is a change to chemicals
(neurons and hormones) that supply muscles and organs in the body.
When trauma occurs there is a chemical change in the mind and
body. New patterns are developed in which, can have an impact to
way a person may feel, think and how they behave in society.
