The final webinar in the Criminal Justice Series provides a great opportunity to hone your skills related to cultural understanding and considerations for recovery-oriented practice. Our presenters are exceptionally qualified to speak from both a personal and professional perspective when exploring the dynamics driving Native American experiences within the behavioral health and criminal justice systems. Following this webinar, participants will be able to:
•Demonstrate increased understanding of social, cultural, and historic factors that contribute to the overrepresentation of American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) people within the criminal justice system.
•Identify specific service gaps between criminal justice and behavioral health systems as experienced by AI/AN people.
•Identify at least three interventions, resources, or tools that can be used by providers to bridge or mitigate gaps in services related to social, cultural, and historic factors experienced by the people they serve.
