More than four in five American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced some form of violence. Native children are directly affected as well and experience high rates of PTSD and depression. These rates are rising and are expected to rise as we face the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

As a tribal community, identifying and recognizing signs of abuse is key especially during these trying times. In this important four-hour session, we’ll discuss the effects of domestic, child, and elder abuse and how community members can take action to intervene and prevent future abuse from occurring. Communication is vital during this time and our expert instructor will provide you with the tools necessary to be the advocate that victims need.
