- Key Concepts: This lesson will present an overview of the major issues for Administrators/Supervisors to consider when developing, implementing, supervising, evaluating and “marketing” to tribal elected officials and/or tribal administrators responsible for service systems in Tribal communities
In the module, Effective Service Systems for Tribal Communities, we will focus on the key areas that administrators and supervisors need to consider when developing, implementing, and evaluating and marketing mental health service system models for children and adolescents in Tribal communities. Service systems, as discussed in this module, include multiple agencies in different sectors (mental health, education, juvenile justice, child welfare, primary care, etc) that provide services and support to children and their families. The major goal of this training session is to provide some practical information that can help Tribal administrators and supervisors design and implement effective programs and services for Tribal communities. We also hope that this session will provide some useful ideas on ways to mobilize available resources and document outcomes that can help sustain the services that were developed.
- Key Concepts: In this module, Effective Services for Tribal Communities, we will focus on the key areas that child and family team members should consider when working with American Indian youth and their families. The major goal of this training session is to provide practical information that will assist child and family team members in the development of skills to work within American Indian communities, families, and with individuals. This is not a guide to work with American Indians as there is incredible diversity between tribes and within tribes, as well as diversity based on geographical residence. Our hope is to provide trainees with some general skills to assist American Indian youth with positive and healthy changes towards reaching their personal and families’ goals while learning ways to tailor their work to the specific community you serve.
