  5. Resource Description
    "Cuqyun (Yup'ik term for 'a measuring tool') is a developmental project linked with the long term, programmatic People Awakening research. Significant cultural adaptation of established measurement tools as well as development of new culture specific tools was required to assess variables related to alcohol, substance abuse and suicide in Alaska Native adolescents. Cuqyun's primary purpose is to test the psychometric properties of these adapted and recently developed measures with a sample of 475 AN adolescents age 13-18 years. This project also tests the predictive validity of these measures in a culturally-based model of AN sobriety and reasons for living suggested by our previous Community Based Participatory Research. This final aim will also provide a test of the multilevel pathway model of sobriety on which our preventive intervention program of research is based."
