Dave “Red Hawk” Slater received the Excellence in Service Award at the 2017 Regional National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP) conference in St. George, UT.
Red Hawk has been a field instructor with Evoke Entrada for over 7 years, and including his time spent working with another treatment program, has been in the field for well over a decade. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge that pervades the work he does with Evoke participants, as well as mentoring his fellow staff members. He embodies the qualities of enthusiasm, creativity, hard work and passion.
He is also undisputedly the "hardskills" master at Entrada. Regularly Red Hawk encourages and coaches the Evoke Entrada participants to try new and empowering projects like hand drills, pump drills, wooden chains and even a collapsible stool. He is a strong believer in the basics of wilderness therapy, and can be relied upon to bring the focus back to hiking, busting a fire and camp life. From these activities he is able to utilize metaphor and personality to draw deep connections for the participants, and foster an environment where they can change and grow. He consistently pushes himself out of his comfort zone to respond to feedback, role modeling for all of the Evoke instructors what it means to be dedicated to the growth process. Red Hawk’s dedication to Evoke's participants, instructors and program make him a valuable addition to the treatment team.
