Yurok Tribe

Yurok 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 Yurok Tribe’s child welfare data, the Comprehensive Prevention Plan included data from two counties, Humboldt and Del Norte, in which Yurok Tribal members reside. Through this analysis, Yurok 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, Yurok has selected to implement Motivational Interviewing for Substance Use Treatment and as a cross-cutting approach, Multisystemic Therapy, and Parents As Teachers. Additionally, Yurok categorically outlined service gaps and needs, as well as the programs that would help to address those needs. This led to primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention strategies. Yurok also included two templates. One template is the candidacy determination form and the second is the prevention case plan form. Read the Yurok Tribe Comprehensive Prevention Plan.
