DOWNLOAD | The focus of this essay is on those highly distressed, First Nation communities on the extreme end of the well-being continuum. Its purpose is to stimulate reflection on what might be an appropriate policy response to such communities. In particular the authors explore the following three questions: i) are there useful generalizations to be made about the developmental processes that distressed communities might adopt to deal positively with their situation? ii) are there constructive roles for “outside” parties to play in facilitating these processes? and iii) what might be useful next steps?
