This workshop offers culturally best practice frameworks, processes, and practices for engaging with American Indian populations. Participants will gain a better understanding of the diversity of Tribal cultures, historical and present-day strengths, the impacts of historical trauma, as well as be introduced to indigenous world views of mental and emotional healing.
