Pamela Jumper Thurman (Abstract of Presentation)

  • Negative health consequences in the Native community and other communities of color related to IPV are well established and are a challenge to health providers.
  • Statistics document that 1 in 3 Native women experience physical and sexual violence. Few resources are available to these communities and jurisdictional issues can be challenging.
  • Each community is different, different histories, different resources, and the cultures vary. What works in one community may not work in other communities. In fact, a best practice in one community is not a best practice for all communities.
  • Community Readiness, developed at Colorado State University, takes these factors into consideration and utilizes the existing resources within a community, the strength of the culture within the community, and the readiness of a community to engage and mobilize to build stronger and more effective efforts in both research and service to create a sustainable and community supported model for change.
