Touchstones of Hope Dialogue: Holistic Approach
July 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm CDT
Join NICWA and the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada as we discuss the Touchstones of Hope, a movement to redesign services, including child welfare services, for Indigenous children and families to embed Indigenous ways of caring for children and families into child welfare systems, policies, and practices.
On July 20, at 10:00–11:30 a.m. PT / 1:00–2:30 p.m. ET, in a session titled “Holistic Approach,” presenters will explore examples of prevention and wraparound services in the United States and Canada and how these services are essential to the wellbeing of Indigenous children and their families.
This dialogue is the fifth in a seven-part, bi-monthly, dialogue series inviting Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples from the United States and Canada to actively engage in conversations about the five principles that are the foundation of the Touchstones of Hope: self-determination, holistic approach, culture and language, structural interventions, and non-discrimination. The dialogues will explore topics related to the Touchstones principles and how these principles can be applied in the reform of child welfare
