Webinar: Northwest virtual prevention leadership academy

Webinar: Northwest virtual prevention leadership academy

The goal of the Northwest PTTC Prevention Leadership Academy is to engage leaders in the prevention workforce to identify and build upon their strengths in creative problem-solving, strategic planning, and charismatic communication.

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged leaders of local substance misuse prevention efforts to keep communities engaged. Given the uncertainties around face-to-face meeting, many of us are looking for new ways to re-energize our connections. The Virtual Northwest Prevention Leadership Academy creates an opportunity for participants to learn and experience online tools that create energy and empowerment to engage leaders, coalitions, and community members in our collective prevention efforts.

The Virtual Leadership Academy will explore both leadership principles using a set of Liberating Structures customized for prevention and online delivery.  Liberating Structures is a set of practical methods and tools designed to foster active participation and create innovation among team members, collaborators, and communities. Their use facilitates trust-building and shared commitment to group values and outcomes. Northwest PTTC staff is excited to be collaborating with facilitators of Liberating Structures to present the academy.  Learn more about the facilitators.

Webinar: Addressing the impact of institutional racism in behavioral and recovery care: A trauma informed intersectional healing framework for Latinxs

Webinar: Addressing the impact of institutional racism in behavioral and recovery care: A trauma informed intersectional healing framework for Latinxs

This presentation is the second of a 4-Part series titled: "Institutional Racism and How it Impacts the Latinx Experience as it Relates to Behavioral Health."

The Latinx community in the U.S. is living through one of its most difficult periods in modern U.S. history. Currently, Latinxs are being negatively impacted by systemic oppression which can lead to psychological distress including ethno-racial trauma. This form of trauma stems from experiencing or witnessing discrimination, threats of harm, violence, and intimidation directed at Latinxs. However, the impact of institutional racism, and other forms of oppression, is often not emphasized in most of the existing psychotherapeutic, recovery, and trauma literature. To this end, the goal of this workshop is to illustrate the ways in which behavioral health clinicians can integrate an intersectional and trauma informed healing framework into their clinical practice to address the impact of ethno-racial trauma on Latinxs.

Webinar: Caring for children and youth in crisis, part 1

Webinar: Caring for children and youth in crisis, part 1

The word “crisis” comes from the Latinized form of the Greek word krisis, meaning "decisive point in the progress of a disease.” It denotes a critical juncture at which change is inevitable, for better or worse. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and the civil unrest persists around the country in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, it is well-known that the US is facing a mental health crisis among our children and youth. In partnership with American Institutes for Research & the Forum for Youth Investment, the Afterschool Alliance is excited to announce a series of webinars focused on the why and how of implementing trauma-informed approaches in youth development programs. In a series of three webinars we will discuss the importance of trauma-informed approaches in out-of-school time settings, and the critical role that afterschool and summer program providers and networks can play in helping youth manage and recover from trauma.

This webinar, will feature expert presenters from Turnaround for Children, the Search Institute, and the Forum for Youth Investment. The webinar will illuminate what we know about the effects of adversity on child and adolescent brain development, with an eye toward why trauma-informed practices are so important and practical tools and strategies for programs to employ when working with youth who may be dealing with trauma. Join us for a conversation with experts in the field who will provide perspectives on trauma-informed approaches as a critical lever to ensure educational equity, and discuss the importance of youth development programs in addressing adverse childhood experiences.

- Karen Pittman, Co-Founder, President and CEO, Forum for Youth Investment
Pamela Cantor, M.D. Founder & Senior Science Advisor, Turnaround for Children

Webinar: Developmental relationships: Bring intention to practice

Webinar: Developmental relationships: Bring intention to practice

We’ve known for decades that high-quality relationships are essential to young people’s growing, learning, and thriving—including for those young people who face serious stresses in their lives and in the world around them. But many professionals who work directly with youth–especially youth from marginalized communities–face challenges in forming well-rounded relationships that connect with the diverse needs of youth.

In fact, we know that 20% of youth report having no developmental relationships in their life, and another 20% report only having one. 

Educational success and social-emotional development blossom when caring adults and supportive peers are present in young people’s lives, and build developmental relationships. 

Relationships are developmental when they help young people discover who they are, nuture abilities to shape their own lives, and learn how to engage with and contribute to the world around them. 

Our research team identified five critical elements of developmental relationships:

  • Express Care 
  • Challenge Growth 
  • Provide Support 
  • Share Power
  • Expand Possibilities

In the Developmental Relationships – Bring Intention to Practice workshop, you'll learn to be intentional and inclusive in strengthening developmental relationships with young people.

Webinar: Racial equity in education: League of education voters foundation virtual event

Webinar: Racial equity in education: League of education voters foundation virtual event

COVID-19 has illuminated many areas of inequity in our educational system. Not every student has the same access online. Not every family has the support needed to tutor. We all have seen that in the last several months. But leaders in conversations around educational equity have long known that our schools are not equitable, especially when it comes to race. COVID-19 has given us an opportunity to have critical conversations and develop solutions together.

Join us on October 8, 2020 from 11:30 am-1:00 pm for a statewide virtual FREE convening around Racial Equity and Education. First, we will hear from Dr. Benjamin Danielson, Director of Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic in Seattle, exploring the role of racial equity, diversity, access, and inclusion in our public education system. Then, join us as we break into groups to discuss the issue together.

Webinar: That's a wrap! Enhancing alcohol and other drug prevention and education through creative video marketing

Webinar: That's a wrap! Enhancing alcohol and other drug prevention and education through creative video marketing

Bethany Mauch, ATOD Prevention Specialist, North Dakota State College of Science

Kerri Kava, Assistant Director of Student Life, North Dakota State College of Science

Getting students’ attention about low-risk alcohol use and other harm reduction strategies is hard, but is an essential part of comprehensive AOD Prevention on college campuses. This webinar will share how a 2-year campus successfully reduced high-risk alcohol use and increased participation in late-night events by (in part) developing and sending creative videos to students and how through student collaboration, these messages have become a cornerstone to prevention and education at this campus. Practical suggestions on how to plan and fund student-led video programming will be provided.

Webinar: A culture of prevention: What does that mean and how would it affect research and practice?

Webinar: A culture of prevention: What does that mean and how would it affect research and practice?

A recent commentary in Prevention Science, [Sloboda, Z., David, S.B. Commentary on the Culture of Prevention. Prev Sci (2020). https://doi.org/10.1007/s11121-020-01158-8 ] explored the concept of a culture of prevention and what that means to research and practice. The commentary was requested by the Associate Editors of a Special Issue on the topic. In the call to scientists for articles, the journal defined the concept as the “general orientation or readiness of a group of people…to address problems by using a preventive, rather than a reactive approach.”

But how do we normally address serious behavioral health problems? Generally, it is piecemeal. We first identify a problem—often affecting large numbers of people, then devise programming to prevent them in the future.  And generally, the focus is on treatment first. While we believe in ‘preventing problems before they happen,’ operationally we rarely build such programming without a recognition of serious problems that have affected many. And even then, we may not activate interventions for quite a while—e.g., the opiate overdoses of the past couple of years took a long time before policymakers recognized and provided significant funding to intervene effectively with emergency Narcan and treatments but not in the prevention of substance use. 

So how would a culture of prevention change that formula? Could we establish an infrastructure that is built to prepare and prevent populations from behavioral health problems? If so, what would that look like? In this session,  Dr. Zili Sloboda will open our discussion by providing a general overview of the issues raised in the Commentary and her general take on this issue. Then Claudia Zundel and Craig PoVey will give us the view from their positions at the state level where the leadership in regard to prevention decision-making happens. How do they think of the value and possibilities of a “Culture of Prevention.” We will then open discussion with our audience.

Webinar: Northwest virtual prevention leadership academy

Webinar: Northwest virtual prevention leadership academy

The goal of the Northwest PTTC Prevention Leadership Academy is to engage leaders in the prevention workforce to identify and build upon their strengths in creative problem-solving, strategic planning, and charismatic communication.

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged leaders of local substance misuse prevention efforts to keep communities engaged. Given the uncertainties around face-to-face meeting, many of us are looking for new ways to re-energize our connections. The Virtual Northwest Prevention Leadership Academy creates an opportunity for participants to learn and experience online tools that create energy and empowerment to engage leaders, coalitions, and community members in our collective prevention efforts.

The Virtual Leadership Academy will explore both leadership principles using a set of Liberating Structures customized for prevention and online delivery.  Liberating Structures is a set of practical methods and tools designed to foster active participation and create innovation among team members, collaborators, and communities. Their use facilitates trust-building and shared commitment to group values and outcomes. Northwest PTTC staff is excited to be collaborating with facilitators of Liberating Structures to present the academy.  Learn more about the facilitators.

Webinar: A prevention practitioners' guide to HHS Region 10 state cannabis policies and regulations

Webinar Description

We know that addressing policy is a key component of prevention work with long term and lasting effects, but where do you start, especially when the landscape may seem complex and confusing? Understanding regulatory language and processes might be challenging at first, but like many challenges, it gets easier the more you do it. And having access to tools that help you line up the pieces and fit them together will contribute to your success.

This session will introduce you to the components of a toolkit for addressing cannabis policy from a public health and prevention framework. The tools provided will be explained, including the basic principles on which they were developed, the relevance for each of the HHS Region 10 states, and ways you can use them as you work in your communities to address issues around cannabis policy and regulations. The tools will be easily accessible on the PTTC webpage, and you will have the opportunity to make recommendations for additional tools.

Objectives

By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the purpose of the toolkit
  • Access each component online and be familiar with its contents

Webinar: The addiction professional’s guide to addressing medical marijuana use - part 1

Webinar: The addiction professional’s guide to addressing medical marijuana use - part 1

In the United States, medical marijuana is now broadly or partially legalized in 34 states, though it remains illegal under federal law. Variation in state and local laws, contradictory research about medical marijuana, and inconsistent administrative policies and procedures can create confusion for addictions professionals. Additionally, addictions professionals are often well aware of the dangers and drawbacks of potentially addictive substances such as marijuana and are accustomed to clients feigning or exaggerating symptoms in pursuit of addictive medication, yet we also sometimes work with clients suffering from debilitating biomedical conditions who might benefit from medical marijuana. This training was designed to provide addiction professionals with a foundation of relevant knowledge about medical marijuana (Part 1) and a clinical decision tree for choosing a sensible and appropriate course of action when working with clients presenting with medical marijuana cards (Part 2).

Webinar: Ethics in prevention: A guide for substance abuse prevention practitioners

Webinar: Ethics in prevention: A guide for substance abuse prevention practitioners

As a substance misuse prevention professional, we regularly face situations that require us to make ethical decisions. Often it is clear how to act ethically; sometimes it is not.

This moderated online course explores the six principles of the Prevention Code of Ethics, brought to life with realistic examples designed to enhance participant understanding. The course also introduces a decision-making process to help practitioners apply this code to a variety of ethical dilemmas, and an online discussion area to facilitate discussion with other course participants.

Next Event: October 26-November 6, 2020

Audience: Prevention practitioners working at the state level or in communities

Course Length: 6 hours

Certification: This course has been endorsed by the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) and meets the IC&RC’s prevention ethics requirement for prevention specialist credentialing.  Individuals who receive a passing grade on the course self-assessment (80% correct) will receive a certificate for 6 hours of participation.

This training has also been approved by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) to satisfy CASAC renewal requirements and CPP/CPS initial/renewal credentialing requirements. 

Education Development Center is a NADAAC-approved vendor.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Define ethics and related terms
  • Apply the six principles of the Prevention Code of Ethics to their work in prevention
  • Use a four-step decision-making process to resolve ethical dilemmas

Course Modules

  • Module 1: Welcome to Ethics in Prevention explores the differences between values, principles, and ethics; what to do when values compete or conflict; describes two types of unethical behavior, and introduces the six principles of the Prevention Code of Ethics.
  • Module 2: Prevention Code of Ethics examines, in detail, each of the six principles: Non-Discrimination; Competence, Integrity, Nature of Services, Confidentiality, and Ethical Obligations for Community and Society
  • Module 3: Decision-making Process presents an objective process for making ethical decisions and actions in challenging situations, particularly when there is no single best response, there is a recognized difference of opinion, or people don’t feel good about the circumstances or the possible resolution.

Each module contains practical information and interactive exercises designed to help you apply course content to your work. This course also contains numerous resources—including summaries, tools, and links to external sites—to supplement the online course experience.

Promoting First Relationships® Learner VIRTUAL Workshop

Promoting First Relationships® Learner VIRTUAL Workshop

October 26-29, 2020
8:30am - 12:00pm Each Day PDT
$550

 

Professionals who work with caregivers and young children (0-3) often see the need to support and guide caregivers in building nurturing relationships with children. Promoting First Relationships workshop gives professionals the knowledge, tools, and strategies to do so. The Promoting First Relationships evidence-based program integrates theory, practice and intervention. Trainers use various learning approaches including case studies, role-playing, and reflective dialogue. These approaches allow participants to apply the framework directly to issues they face in their environment.

In this 4 half-day learner’s workshop, participants learn a unique consultation and intervention strategy that they can integrate into their work whether in high-risk, special needs, child-care, or other early childhood fields. The strategy can be used one-on-one with parents and also with child care providers and early childhood teachers responsible for group care. Because Promoting First Relationships is a positive, strengths-based model, caregivers are typically open to intervention and gain competence, and thus investment, in their caregiving.

Your fee covers tuition, all curriculum materials including the Promoting First Relationships manual, video and a packet of reproducible parent handouts.

What participants are saying . . .

“I loved the video examples which really helped illustrate the principles.”

“Straightforward and doable, lots of real life examples and opportunity to reflect in groups.”

“I liked how the case studies cemented the concepts.”

“I particularly liked the group discussions, latest research information and the handouts.”

This workshop is approved for 15 Professional CEU’s and is eligible for STARS credits.

Webinar: Bringing it home – Grassroots advocacy

Webinar: Bringing it home – Grassroots advocacy

As addiction professionals, it is in our best interest to influence emerging policy, both in Washington, DC, and in our states. While much attention is being paid to the national conversation, most of what influences our day to day operation occurs at the state level. Sam Rayburn, a former U.S. Representative, once said, “All politics are local.” In this presentation, we will discuss building relationships with state officials, discuss how to have your voice heard, and share ideas on connecting locally with your elected federal officials to influence current legislation and bring the local picture into focus.

Learning objectives

  • Discuss resources available for current and relevant data, emphasizing the provider’s district/service area.
  • Understand the importance of engaging in the policy conversation as a constituent – in the role of service provider, employer and voter.
  • Identify 3 bills currently being considered nationally that are relevant to your organization and/or treatment industry.

Webinar: Basics of pharmacology

Webinar: Basics of pharmacology

This course will review some of the basics of pharmacology, which include: routes of administration and discussion of terminology (tolerance, agonist, partial agonist, antagonist). Understanding routes of administration of substances can help clinicians assess addiction potential and other health problems, and develop harm reduction strategies for those who work in harm reduction. Knowing the difference between an agonist or antagonist or partial agonist will help people understand how some of the medication-assisted treatments work.

Goal: To review information on pharmacology

Objectives:
1. Describe routes of administration for substances and discuss the pros and cons of each one
2. Define the following terms: tolerance (learning, metabolic, & cellular), cross-tolerance and cross-dependence, and synergism or potentiation
3. State the definition of agonist, partial agonist, and antagonist drugs and how they apply to our work

Agenda:
Module 1: Routes of administration
Module 2: Terminology

This training meets the requirements for two renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and two initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). The NJ Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services offers reciprocity for CADC, LCADC, and LPC.

The session will conclude with tips and resources for addressing this issue with patients and their families.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize current trends in cannabis policies and regulations.
  • Identify emerging cannabis products.
  • Describe unintended and evolving consequences of cannabis legalization.

Webinar: Restorative justice practices training - 3 part series (part 1)

Webinar: Restorative justice practices training - 3 part series (part 1)

Restorative practices help build community, celebrate accomplishments, transform conflict, rebuild relationships that have been harmed, and reintegrate students who have been suspended or expelled. Both the theory and practice of Restorative Justice emphasize identifying harm, involving all stakeholders, and true accountability- repairing harm and addressing its causes. A restorative model aligns with the multi-tiered framework of PBIS and is at the heart, a prevention-based approach. In this workshop we will explore the Tier I preventative practices that serve as the foundation to this work followed by the higher-level Tier II practices that dig into repairing and restoring harm that has been caused.

Webinar: Adolescent substance use: Contemporary trends in prevention and treatment

Webinar: Adolescent substance use: Contemporary trends in prevention and treatment

Substance use among youth people in the US is still common and of great health significance. Whereas the 1970’s was marked by large gaps in knowledge about what contributes to the onset and course of drug use in teenagers and how to best measure and treat its signs and symptoms, the past 25 years have been characterized by a rapid growth of research in the development of evidence-based prevention and treatment approaches to address adolescent substance use.

This webinar will provide a clinically-oriented overview of prevention and treatment strategies and approaches to address adolescents at risk for substance use and to address those with a substance use disorder. The presenter will focus on 1) developmental issues important when working with youth in clinical settings, 2) prevention strategies, and 3) treatment strategies.
