This webinar will support service providers in understanding the impact of colonialism on mental health outcomes for Aboriginal youth. The webinar will also look at the work of the Child and Parent Research Institute’s (CPRI) integrative practices of Aboriginal traditional holistic knowledge with western clinical approaches to create unique culturally appropriate services for Aboriginal kids and their families in the mental health system. The incorporation of ceremonies, practices, education and traditional strategies (Aboriginal worldview) offer grounding, validation and capacity development for all while seeking to link and blend contributions from western health practices (mainstream worldview).
