Webinar - Journal Special Issue on Indigenous Youth Wellbeing- Risk & Resilience
This webinar focuses on the research surrounding Indigenous children who have unique strengths and resilience, despite facing a wide range of structural and systemic risks such as poverty, health inequities, lower food security, lack of access to services, to water and land. As a result of racial bias and inequality, Indigenous children are also over-represented in the child welfare system – which often leads to a loss of cultural identity – and their views and voices are not sufficiently considered.
This 90-minute virtual session will bring together cross-disciplinary practitioners and researchers globally to discuss how to publish in our new practice-based journal. Presented by the Editors for this journal Dr. Christine Wekerle and Dr. Catherine Maternowska
