"The Relational Worldview:" A Tribal and Cultural Framework for Service Delivery and Program Development (Skills Seminar D)
The "Relational Worldview" model of service delivery and program assessment and development, a model of identifying tribal thought which is based on the concept of balance and that "all things are related," recognizes family strengths, cultural strengths, and realities and seeks to restore balance. Currently, the model is being used by and provides influence and inspiration to a number of tribal and non-tribal service providers throughout the country both in the areas of child welfare practice and children's mental health systems of care. This workshop includes multi-media presentations as well as small group discussions, role-plays, and other interactive methods designed to give participants a hands-on experience to enable them to use the Relational Worldview model in their own practice.
