This toolkit uses a backdrop of significant historical events as a foundation for understanding perspectives, improving communication, and strengthening relationships when working with American Indian/Alaskan Native families, couples, and individuals. This toolkit will help service providers acquire cultural competence and covers important topics in the research literature with input from experts in the field. This toolkit provides practical suggestions for engaging and serving this population, particularly for incorporating healthy marriage and relationship education skills into service delivery systems as part of a comprehensive family-centered approach to promoting self-sufficiency.
