Part 1: “Developing a Cultural Appropriate Aboriginal Parenting Skills Assessment Tool” of the CBRC Webinar Series on “How Community-Based Research is implemented with marginalized populations”
Marginalized populations can be both overlooked and undervalued in research, but CBR can be used to overcome these potential pitfalls. In this webinar Charlotte Loppie and Kendra Gage share about their project titled “Developing a Cultural Appropriate Aboriginal Parenting Skills Assessment Tool”.
Dr. Charlotte Loppie is a professor in the School of Public Health and Social Policy at the University of Victoria, and the Director of the university’s Centre for Indigenous Research and Community-Led Engagement. She has made it her life’s work to bring Indigenous peoples into research projects that touch their lives. Her goal is to empower communities, build research capacity and tackle the health disparities faced by Indigenous peoples.
Kendra Gage is the Executive Director of Hulitan Family and Community Services Society. She has worked in the field of social services since 1996 in both Aboriginal and Non- Aboriginal not-for-profit organizations. She is passionate about high standards of practice, CARF accreditation, accountability, youth issues, and most importantly, making sure the voice of the Aboriginal community is heard within the social services sector.
The CBRC Webinar Series on “How Community-Based Research is implemented with marginalized populations” explores critical themes and issues, showcasing case studies and providing helpful insights and lessons learned.
