Karuk Tribe

Karuk Tribe completed a thorough data analysis and assessment process which aligned directly with the selection of evidence-based practices. In addition, to an assessment of Karuk Tribe’s child welfare data, the Comprehensive Prevention Plan included data from two counties, Humboldt and Siskiyou in which Karuk Tribal members reside. Through this analysis Karuk was able to identify the top three factors leading to entry into child-welfare, this includes parental substance abuse, domestic violence and parental mental health. To address these concerns, Karuk has selected to implement Motivational Interviewing for Substance Use Treatment and as a cross-cutting approach, Multisystemic Therapy, and Parents As Teachers. Additionally, Karuk categorically outlined service gaps and needs and the programs that would help to address those needs. This led to primary, secondary and tertiary prevention strategies. Karuk also included two templates, one template is the candidacy determination form and the second is the prevention case plan form. Read the Karuk Comprehensive Prevention Plan.
