Abstract: Webinar describes the activities and results of a practice-based evidence project, a ten-year collaborative effort between the Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA), National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA), and the Research and Training Center on Family Support and Children’s Mental Health. The purpose of the project is to develop strategies for measuring and documenting the effectiveness of NAYA’s services; to develop a process for evaluating known "good outcomes" of community-based agencies and programs; and to enhance the transition to adulthood experience of American Indian and Alaska Native youth. Two tools developed by the project, the NAYA Assessment Tool (NAT) and the NAYA Outcomes Planning Protocol are explained. Run time: 1 hour 50 seconds.
