Healing and Violence Prevention in Tribal Communities

November 22, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Join the National Indian Health Board and our esteemed experts to discuss the ways in which healing is critical to prevent against future violence in Tribal communities. Last year, NIHB hosted a series of conversations with Tribal public health practitioners, service providers, and experts to strengthen understanding about current practices, programs, policies and needs for violence prevention in Tribal communities. One of the things we heard during those sessions was the need to focus on Tribal ways of healing, in order to prevent violence.

This webinar will explore what healing looks like, what role(s) healing has in preventing violence, and some examples of how healing has been incorporated into violence programs. We will also explore the ways in which healing for violence prevention can be supported by non-Tribal partners.

This webinar is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $280,000 with 100 percent funded by CDC/HHS.
