Cultural Responsivity in Working With Indigenous Youth
By Valerie N. von Bargen

Indigenous peoples are incredibly resilient, embracing their cultural identities while carrying the burden of devastating history. This article provides an overview of culturally responsive considerations for practitioners when working with Indigenous youth.

A conceptual framework and tangible action steps are provided to guide practitioners in navigating these concerns that negatively affect Indigenous students.
