While the work of developing culturally relevant trauma treatments for Native nations, families, and individuals remains ongoing and requires large-scale investments of time, money, and energy, Tribal multidisciplinary (MDTs) teams and children's advocacy centers (CACs) can work with their local partners to ensure that their treatment offerings are evidence-supported and culturally responsive. The Native Child Advocacy Resource Center is committed to supporting MDTs and CACs as they address barriers to their work in this area.
