    • Abstract:
      High levels of trauma have been found in the general American Indian/Alaska Native ("Native") population; however, little is known about the trauma exposure of Native parents with children involved in Indian Child Welfare Act cases. Assessing a group of such parents revealed lifetime trauma exposure to be as high, or higher than the general Native population. Findings indicate child welfare departments can demonstrate ICWA active efforts by assessing for parental trauma and when indicated, referring parents for trauma treatment. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
