The Value of NTI for Tribes

Summary: “The curriculum addresses loss and grief in a way that honors the tribal experience of intergenerational grief and loss.” Terry Cross, Senior Advisor, National Indian Child Welfare Association, outlines how beneficial the NTI training is for those professionals working in Tribal communities. The curriculum also addresses a child’s need for belonging, not just with caregivers but with their entire family, their clan, tribal community, and friends.
