Indian Boarding Schools and the Therapeutic Residential Model Project: Introduction

About the Course:

In 2006, “American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research: The Journal of the National Center” published a special issue (Volume 13, Issue 3) dealing with boarding schools for American Indian youth. Specifically, the issue looked at the use of the Therapeutic Residential Model (TRM) in several different schools. Information was presented about the history of boarding schools, development of at-risk youth, creation of the TRM project, its implementation at the different schools, and its evaluation.
