The Ripple Effect of Crime: Coordinating a Collaborative Response to Victimization in Tribal Communities

Training Summary

In working with crime victims, a collaborative response can expand services, create partnerships, and improve response to victims. In tribal communities, some service providers may be outside the tribe, but could be important to include on your team. Providing responses to crime victims that are culturally appropriate in tribal communities plays a significant part in healing and moving people forward after victimization. The goal of this Webinar is to assist tribal communities in building collaborations that address the needs of crime victims. This Webinar highlights different types of collaboration, ways to deal with change and challenges, the benefits of collaboration, and how to recognize cultural differences.
