Annotation: This report summarizes the four phases of activities conducted in a project funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance to provide training and technical assistance necessary for tribal courts to evaluate and address child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, and Indian youth gangs.
Abstract: The training and technical assistance provided under the grant focused on making fundamental changes in the perceptions of tribal court judges and other personnel, as well as changes in tribal court operations and the scope of tribal court jurisdiction in these areas. The training and technical assistance consisted of: (1) long-term strategic planning for tribal courts; (2) guides on tribal court jurisdiction, child abuse and domestic violence on the reservation, and Indian youth gangs; and (3) regional training sessions for tribal court judges on child abuse, domestic violence, and gang violence. The project's four phases included development and assessment, writing and publication of monographs, delivery of strategic plans and regional trainings, and evaluation. List of separate appendixes
