Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. apply knowledge about historical and intergenerational trauma to understand student behaviors and work effectively with families and communities;
  2. begin to develop culturally adapted interventions with Indigenous youth; and
  3. reposition their approach to relationships in consultation, assessment, and intervention with Indigenous youth and communities.


Using case studies, stories, and research, the presenters will address the following questions: Why do I need to know if a student is Indigenous? How will it influence consultation, intervention, and assessment? This session is sponsored by the Convention Committee.
