CSPP Lecture Series: Decolonized Strategies for Addressing Child Maltreatment: American Indian and Alaska Native Perspectives
This webinar will discuss the systemic challenges that can lead to child maltreatment among American Indian and Alaska Native populations, discussions about issues that can lead to IPV and Missing and Murdered Indigenous women will also be highlighted. The panel will reflect on ways to integrate decolonized treatment strategies with survivors of abuse. A global movement within Native communities is shifting toward decolonialism. In fact, Western psychology serves as modern representation of colonization essentially perpetuating oppression. In light of a recent white paper outlining a call to action acknowledging the experiences of Native American women and girls impacted by sexual exploitation, sex trafficking, sexual violence, and those whose who have gone missing or murdered, there is advocacy for clinicians to become culturally-informed and implement trauma-informed treatments to address the needs of Native populations.
