reclaiming native psychological brilliance



United South and Eastern Tribes, Inc. and New England MHTTC invite you and your staff to attend "Reclaiming Native Psychological Brilliance: Wise Practices," a Tribal Behavioral Health ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) webinar series--a collaborative model of education to help providers offer expert-level care. Native Psychological Brilliance refers to the intelligence, strengths, balance, innate resources, and resilience of Native people.

This no-cost telehealth series is held on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 11 am Pacific/12 pm Mountain/1 pm Central/2 pm Eastern. Each session is one hour in length and provides an opportunity for participants to: 


  • Gain skills on strength-based approaches in partnership with Native People to enhance Native behavioral health
  • Discuss ways that Native brilliance is demonstrated and supports behavioral health
  • Learn about Native brilliance examples to share with behavioral health and other health care staff, as well as with local Tribal Nation citizens


The concept of Native psychological brilliance is celebrated through Native music video and Native spoken word performances as part of each session.


Who should attend? Tribal health directors, clinic staff, counselors, social workers, physicians, nurses, Tribal Epidemiology Center staff, and anyone supporting Tribal communities through the health or behavioral health sector are welcome to join.


Continuing education units are provided.
