CPE 190 The Historical Trauma and Unresolved Grief Intervention: A Tribal Best Practice for Intergenerational Healing Among Aboriginal Peoples

Course Description

Dr. Maria Yellow Horse Brave Heart developed the Historical Trauma and Unresolved Grief Intervention (HTUG) in 1992 to address intergenerational massive group trauma healing. In 2009, HTUG was designated as a Tribal Best Practice.  She also developed the Historical Trauma theory.  In this two-day workshop, Dr. Brave Heart will describe the theory, intervention adaptations, and relevant research approaches. National American Indian/Alaska Native DSM IV prevalence rates are examined within the context of historical and cultural factors. Urban Indigenous perceived mental health problems are illustrated in terms of direct descendants of historically traumatic events and observed tribal differences.
