Developing and piloting an evidence-based intervention to support high-risk families who experience family violence in Nunavut

The Qaujigiartiit Health Research Centre in Nunavut is adapting and evaluating the Inunnguiniq Parenting Program for high-risk parents and caregivers who are involved in the criminal justice system, accessing social services, and/or are in treatment for substance abuse. The intervention works to revive Inuit pathways to wellness, building on Inuit societal values and the importance of family connections and rearing children through a strengths-based and holistic approach. This intervention addresses the root causes of family violence including intergenerational trauma and disrupted parent-child attachments resulting from the traumatic experiences of the settlement and residential school eras.
