Webinar: Building family resilience and health in Yakima and the Valley

Webinar: Building family resilience and health in Yakima and the Valley

Presented by Minerva Pardo as part of the Washington State Essentials for Childhood five part ACES, Trauma and Resilience webinar series. 

Minerva Pardo is originally from Mexico City.  A passionate educator, she has been involved in the field for 30 years.  In Mexico, she taught English as a Foreign Language to children, adolescents, and adults.  She also founded a bilingual and bi-cultural elementary school in Mexico City.  Minerva holds bachelor degrees in Bilingual Education and Psychology and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Education. 

In 2012, Minerva moved to Yakima, WA where she continues to serve children and their families.  As the Family Engagement Coordinator for the West Valley School District, she works with and supports students with significant ACEs scores.

Because of her work with the area’s Hispanic communities, Minerva saw the need to translate the Alliance’s Bringing the Protective Factors Framework to Life in Your Work curriculum for her parent trainings.  Working with the Alliance, Minerva has been instrumental in translating ALL of the training materials into Spanish.  A certified translator, she believes participants will always feel more comfortable working and learning when they can use their mother tongue. 

Minerva Pardo, Family Engagement Coordinator in West Valley School District in Yakima and National Trainer for the National Alliance of Children’s Trust and Prevention Funds, will share how they are building family resilience and health in Yakima and the Valley. Helping Communities and Families to heal. Minerva led the effort to translate Strengthening Families Curriculum into Spanish and is training communities throughout the valley. She has also brought parenting sessions and after school clubs culturally relevant for the Spanish speaking families. It is inspiring to see the movement and momentum. Included will be Spanish resources for ACEs and Resilience Minerva and her network have found helpful.

Webinar: Recognizing the role of social media in community mental health settings: Opportunities to support providers, promote trust, and improve service delivery

Webinar: Recognizing the role of social media in community mental health settings: Opportunities to support providers, promote trust, and improve service delivery

Social media platforms have emerged as highly popular venues for sharing personal experiences, seeking information, and offering peer-to-peer support among individuals living with mental illness and those facing the challenges of substance use. With significant shortfalls in the availability, quality, and reach of evidence-based mental health and substance use treatment services across the United States, popular social media platforms may afford new opportunities to bridge this gap.

The goal of this three-part webinar series is to present the state of the science on the role of social media as a potentially viable intervention platform for engaging persons with mental disorders, enhancing existing mental health services, and supporting community-based mental health providers.

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

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

Description: 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.

Learning Objectives: As a result of participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  1. Enhance understanding of developmental issues when working with at-risk or substance-abusing adolescents.
  2. Increase understanding of core ingredients of prevention and counseling techniques that are associated with effective drug abuse interventions and treatments.
  3. Gain appreciation of the continuum of prevention and treatment services pertaining to adolescent substance use.

Webinar: Leading the way! Maximizing the power of youth and young adult leadership in Communities Talk

Webinar: Leading the way! Maximizing the power of youth and young adult leadership in Communities Talk

In 2016, young people took part in more than three-quarters (76 percent) of the Communities Talk: Town Hall Meetings to Prevent Underage Drinking events held across the country and were key speakers at nearly half (48 percent) of these events. They also participated as audience members in more than a quarter (27 percent) of all Communities Talk events. To strengthen youth involvement in the 2019 cycle of Communities Talk, this webinar will explore the many opportunities to maximize their ideas and energy before, during, and after the events.

Given that youth and young adults are directly involved in the ever-present challenges that are unique to their age group, their meaningful involvement in underage drinking prevention efforts can be a powerful means for driving behavior change among their peers.

Involving youth and young adults in hosting a Communities Talk event is an opportunity to invite them to take on the role of leaders and decision-makers in framing the discussion content, selecting guest speakers, fostering partnerships, and developing materials.

With more than 700 community-based organizations and institutions of higher education currently organizing their 2019 Communities Talk event, this webinar will analyze successful strategies for youth and young adult engagement.

Why people die by suicide with Thomas Joiner, PhD

Why people die by suicide with Thomas Joiner, PhD

The Oregon College and University Suicide Prevention Project will host Thomas Joiner, PhD, a leading expert on suicide. 

In his theory of suicidal behavior, Dr. Thomas Joiner, proposes three factors that mark those most at risk of death: the feeling of being a burden on loved ones; the sense of isolation; and the learned ability to hurt oneself. He tests the theory against diverse facts taken from clinical anecdotes, history, literature, popular culture, anthropology, epidemiology, genetics, and neurobiology— and facts about suicide rates among diverse groups.

This training includes seven learning objectives to increase participants knowledge of:

  • Approaches to suicide risk assessment
  • Developments in the treatment of suicidal behavior
  • Epidemiology and risk factors for death by suicide
  • New theory of suicidal behavior
  • Anecdotal, clinical, and scientific evidence that evaluates theory of suicidal behavior
  • Developments in suicide prevention
  • Understand the experience of people who are bereaved by suicide

Thomas Joiner went to college at Princeton and received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. He is The Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor in the Department of Psychology at Florida State University (FSU). Dr. Joiner’s work is on the psychology, neurobiology, and treatment of suicidal behavior and related conditions. Author of over 675 peer-reviewed publications, Dr. Joiner is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Suicide & Life-Threatening Behavior, and was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship. He received the Dublin Award for career achievement in suicide research from the American Association of Suicidology, as well as research grants from the National Institute of Mental Health and Department of Defense (DoD). The Lawton Professorship and the Dublin Award are the single highest honors bestowed, respectively, by FSU and the American Association of Suicidology. In 2017, he was named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

He was a consultant to NASA’s Human Research Program, and is the Director of the DoD-funded Military Suicide Research Consortium, a $30 million project which was recently extended for a second five-year phase at a similar funding level.

Dr. Joiner has authored or edited eighteen books, including Why People Die By Suicide, published in 2005 by Harvard University Press, and Myths About Suicide, published in 2010, also with Harvard University Press. The book Mindlessness: The Corruption of Mindfulness in a Culture of Narcissism, came out in 2017, from Oxford. Largely in connection with Why People Die By Suicide, he has made numerous media appearances, including two appearances on the Dr. Phil Show.
