Tribal Law and Policy Institute, Children and Family Futures, 2022
Achieving common vision and principles to guide the collaboratives requires extraordinary effort since agencies have quite different mandates, training, funding, timing, and methodologies. Many methods exist to assess collaborative values. The Indian Country Collaborative Values Inventory (CVI), a self-administered questionnaire, offers an anonymous way of assessing the extent to which group members share ideas about values underlying their collaborative efforts, and thereby build upon strengths and mitigate challenges. Children and Family Futures (CFF), Tribal Law and Policy Institute (TLPI), and respected Indigenous partners with experience in this field collaborated to develop this tool.
Please email NCSACW if your Tribal collaborative is interested in administering the Indian Country CVI.
