Conversations about Historical Trauma: Part One

NCTSN Resource

Resource Description

Outlines how historical trauma has impacted American Indian children and families and how services for these children and families should take into account not only their present circumstances, personal trauma histories, but also historical trauma. This Spotlight on Culture describes how trauma and grief are interwoven for Native American peoples, features of historical trauma related to the overall experience of American Indians, and how to tap into the community resilience that is a core tenet of many tribal communities.
