The Qungasvik (kung-az-vik) "Toolbox" is a multilevel strength-based intervention developed by Yup'ik Alaska Native communities to reduce and prevent alcohol use disorder (AUD) and suicide in youth and young adults at highest risk. During this webinar, Dr. Stacy Rasmus will: 1) Describe the science to practice model that supported the development and delivery of the culturally-tailored intervention in five Yup’ik communities in southwest Alaska, and 2) Present evidence demonstrating how the model increases strengths and protections against AUD and suicide by promoting culturally meaningful "reasons for sobriety" and "reasons for life."
