DIVERSITY, INCLUSION, & THE SCIENCE OF THE POSITIVE
Day Four - Thursday, January 26, 2023 (Noon-1pm CST) - Our speaker will be Art Blume, PhD. Dr. Blume is an American Indian scholar with extensive experience researching addictive behaviors and alcohol use interventions among ethnic minority populations, including American Indians and Alaska Natives, and among college students. Most of his research during the last 15 years has been toward the advancement of understanding and effectively intervening upon addictive behaviors among racial and ethnic minorities in culturally appropriate ways. His work has examined and advanced our understanding of the use of assessment and interventions within these communities using rigorous Community Based Participatory Methods.

The Montana Institute exists to inspire AHAs about the positive in the world by creating conditions for liberating and cultivating AHA! experiences that transform communities, workplaces, and individuals through The Science of the Positive. In addition to our ongoing scientific inquiry around the health impacts of Positive Childhood Experiences, we provide training and technical assistance to communities implementing Positive Community Norms as a way to increase protective factors and reduce harm (such as ACEs, child abuse and neglect, youth substance use, and many other areas of concern).
