Implementing Culturally Competent Curriculum: Healing of the Canoe ~ Culturally Grounded Intervention, a Chemical Dependency Training Consortium Event
Join us in learning about this innovative intervention curriculum that promotes positive youth development, an optimistic future orientation, and the reduction of substance use and suicide among Native youth.
American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) people demonstrate resilience, strength, and endurance despite centuries of postcolonial efforts to eradicate and assimilate them. Comprising only 1.7% of the overall population, AI/ANs suffer alarming rates of health disparities, resulting in a life expectancy that is 4.2 years less than that of the U.S. all races population. Among the disparities experienced by many AI/ANs is substance abuse and its related negative health and social consequences which has led the Indian Health Service to call alcohol and substance abuse the number-one health problem among AIs. Of particular concern is substance use and abuse among AI/AN youth.
Participants of this training will:
Learn how to incorporate non-traditional, holistic methods into prevention/treatment,
Identify the benefit of using the 4 Seasons/Medicine Wheel treatment method,
Recognize Cultural aspects and values that interlink with building resiliency,
Apply concepts of cultural competence and the use of metaphors to treatment, and
Awareness of how to integrate substance use treatment with prevention programs.
