Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy With Alaska Native People.

Because there is no published research regarding cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with Alaska Natives, this chapter includes information drawn from my own experiences working in a community mental health center and in a Native counseling center in rural Alaska, along with the experiences of other Native and non-Native therapists working with Alaska Native clients. I also include references that are not specifically on CBT with Alaska Natives but are relevant to understanding such work. Because Alaska Native communities are so small, I describe only composite case studies that represent real situations but no individual real person. The chapter begins by describing Alaska Native people in the context of their history, religion, political events, cultural identity, and living conditions.
