Tribal communities have statistically high rates of children and youth affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, teen dating and sex trafficking. This webinar will discuss how children experience trauma, how their trauma symptoms can look different, and what is typically expected when providing advocacy for children and youth. Each child’s reactions to trauma will be different, but almost all children who experience trauma will have emotional or behavioral changes for some time. Reactions can become problematic when they become severe and ongoing. This webinar will examine trauma and how to provide services and supports that lessen the trauma impact related to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, teen dating and sex trafficking.
In this webinar we will discuss how using empowering words today can have a powerful impact on our children. Taking a deeper look at our own language and the words our ancestors spoke helps us unlock a missing piece of ourselves. When we speak our language, we become connected in a way that can’t be seen but felt. How can introducing cultural and language class in your school help children and youth affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, teen dating and sex trafficking? This webinar will focus on using empowering words to support survivors.
What is a survey? What are the advantages vs. disadvantages? This webinar will answer these questions as well as things to consider – the why, what, who, how of surveying; types of questions; informed consent; and analyzing data for program/policy development and/or improvement.

Parenting is often affected when domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, or sex trafficking has happened. Whether parenting issues are ongoing due to abusive relationship or are ongoing due to generational trauma we need to support our victims/ survivors as they develop new skills to increase success for our indigenous youth. What does positive parenting for indigenous parents look like? This webinar will discuss small steps we can make in our homes, schools and communities that will have a lasting positive change in children and teens on the reservations. Many of our parents struggle with disciplining, setting boundaries and how to support children who have been through trauma. Stepping away from the blaming of our own parents and connecting with our ancestors to set things right for the next generation is what is webinar is all about.
