Process for Developing an Indian Parent Program. Parenting Process Training Curriculum.
National American Indian Court Judges Association.
Based on a concern for the disproportionately high separation rate of American Indian families, the National American Indian Court Judges Association (NAICJA) applied for a grant to develop and offer the Indian-specific parent training program under which this training curriculum manual was developed. Composed of eight sections, the manual provides training in the following areas: an introduction to NAICJA and its 1982-83 parenting process training; the Indian family today; assessing community needs and resources; the mechanics of establishing and operating a parent training group; and defining group focus and developmental stages; developing group leadership skills; options for parent curriculum content; and developing an action plan. Each training area offers an objective or objectives, discussion exercises, suggested activities, and sample handouts. Appendices include a sample letter of agreement between the tribal group and NAICJA, parenting community profiles for four tribes, a survey of parenting needs, and a summary of the Ponca Tribe parenting survey.
