Importance of Language & Culture for Healthy Brain Development
June 4, 2020 @ 8:00 am PDT
This is a live training with Aaniiih Nakota College and Fort Belknap Head Start Staff. With American Indian / Alaska Native children experiencing PTSD at the same rates as combat veterans, there are some serious brain development implications that can only be mitigated in early childhood. This training takes a look at how trauma physically injures the brain emotionally and cognitively, but most importantly how language and culture HEALS and promotes healthy brain development. Language/culture is drug and alcohol prevention, suicide prevention, diabetes prevention, and an investment in our future.
