Training Overview Description

Description

Limited studies examine how traditional American Indian/Alaskan Native and Western healing practices are being combined in treatment for Indigenous clients. This webinar will discuss braiding Western treatment modalities and Indigenous approaches for substance use disorders for American Indian/Alaskan Native clients by introducing a culturally responsive method called the ‘Sweetgrass Method.’ This webinar will also examine some observed responses to historical and intergenerational trauma, which include signs of overall poor physical health, depression, substance use.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to describe how historical/intergenerational trauma impacts American Indian/Alaskan Natives today.

  • Participants will be able to summarize the positive correlation between adverse childhood experiences among American Indian/ Alaskan Native and substance disorders.

  • Participants will be able to utilize culturally sensitive therapies and culturally responsive methods in developing treatment/healing plans for clients.
