This
week’s email shares information about the Fostering Resilience in
Native Youth
training made available at the National Congress of
American Indians (NCAI) Annual
Convention
in Sacramento, CA.

Tribal
and community leaders who are interested in supporting positive youth
development are invited to this NCAI pre-meeting, which will focus on how
to provide Native youth with healthy coping strategies. Dr.
Ginsburg, a
pediatrician specializing in adolescent medicine,
will
present strategies that help young people develop healthy ways of
coping, as opposed to destructive quick fixes (drugs, suicide, etc.).

Most importantly, participants will consider how to leverage Native
cultures and adapt existing youth resiliency models in a culturally
appropriate way.
Please see details for the session listed
below:
