Webinar: PTTC Marijuana Prevention Education Toolkit Launch & Listening Session

The nationwide PTTC Network Marijuana Risk Work Group was convened to develop marijuana prevention technical assistance products to assist the nation's workforce in their very important and urgent marijuana prevention work. This past October, the Work Group was pleased to release the first set of resources in the Marijuana Prevention & Education Toolkit.

In this webinar, participants will receive a detailed overview of each of the four products in the toolkit. The following will be covered in the webinar:

  • Description of each of the four tools,
  • Goals and intended uses for each product,
  • Tips and pointers for implementation,  
  • Questions or comments from webinar participants. 

At the conclusion of the toolkit overview, the remainder of the webinar will serve as a listening session where participants will have a chance to share with the PTTC staff, other issues or challenges related to marijuana prevention. This feedback and input will help to inform the development of future marijuana prevention tools, trainings, and technical assistance services.

Webinar: Understanding the Family First Prevention Service Act: Implications for Tribal programs

The Family First Prevention Services Act was enacted into law in 2018, providing tribes and states with opportunities to receive funds for preventative services for eligible children and their caregivers.

The power of showing up: A talk by best-selling author and speaker Dan Siegel, M.D

The power of showing up: A talk by best-selling author and speaker Dan Siegel, M.D

Is it just us or is parenting way harder than it used to be? Good news: You don't have to be perfect, you just have to be present.

Join ParentMap for a very special ParentEd Talk with best-selling author and speaker, Dan Siegel, M.D. Learn the secrets of raising confident, compassionate and connected kids from his new critically-acclaimed book, “The Power of Showing Up: How Parental Presence Shapes Who Our Kids Become and How Their Brains Get Wired.” Sometimes, all you have to do is show up.

‘Show up’ and learn:

  • How to unplug so you can tune-in to your child
  • How to balance kids' involvements with carving out family time
  • How to talk to kids about tough topics without scaring them

And so much more! 

 

About the speaker

Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, the founding co-director of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center and executive director of the Mindsight Institute.

A graduate of Harvard Medical School, Dr. Siegel is the author of several books, including the New York Times bestsellers “Brainstorm,” “Mind” and, with Tina Payne Bryson, “The Whole-Brain Child” and “No-Drama Discipline.”

About “The Power of Showing Up”

What’s the one thing a parent can do to make the most difference in the long run? The research is clear: Show up! In their latest book, best-selling authors Dan Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson explain what this means over the course of childhood.

One of the very best scientific predictors for how any child turns out—in terms of happiness, academic success, leadership skills and meaningful relationships—is whether at least one adult in their life has consistently shown up for them. In an age of scheduling demands and digital distractions, showing up for your child might sound like a tall order. But as Siegel and Bryson reassuringly explain, it doesn’t take a lot of time, energy or money. Instead, showing up means offering a quality of presence. And it’s simple to provide once you understand the four building blocks of a child’s healthy development.

Webinar: Women. Alcohol. Health. - From blackouts to breast cancer

Webinar: Women. Alcohol. Health. - From blackouts to breast cancer

The differences in alcohol use and related harms between women and men have narrowed over the decades. Young females are now more likely to drink and to report getting drunk than young males. Among adults, alcohol consumption and alcohol-related emergency department visits, hospitalizations and deaths have increased for women than for men. Recent studies suggest that alcohol is a growing women’s health issue and that women face different risks from alcohol consumption. Because of physiological differences, women reach higher blood alcohol levels than men after each drink. This means their organs are exposed to more alcohol which could potentially result in more severe impairments in brain function and behavior. This could help explain why women are more likely than men to experience memory blackouts, hangovers and to develop certain cancers. One serving of alcohol per day increases the risk of breast cancer for women by roughly 10%. Additionally, the progression of alcohol use disorders and liver disease is faster in women who drink than in men. This webinar will explore recent changes in alcohol use by women and examine the potential risks.

Webinar: Mental health and suicide prevention in rural America

Webinar: Mental health and suicide prevention in rural America

Suicide rates have recently risen in nearly every state in the U.S., with more dramatic increases in rural areas. In the January session of Hot Topics in Practice two leaders from Idaho discuss why local public health agencies should be involved in mental and behavioral health issues and the role they can play in suicide prevention in rural areas.

This one-hour webinar begins with a review of national data and trends around suicide—noting how these deaths are often undercounted—and a look at the important stressors and strengths rural communities can consider when addressing this issue. The presenters will then share how local data are being used to guide population health planning efforts in Idaho that emphasize awareness, prevention, and support. Particular attention will be given to strategies for building partnerships and promoting resiliency.

Webinar: The promise of adolescence: Realizing opportunity for all youth - Justice sector

Webinar: The promise of adolescence: Realizing opportunity for all youth - Justice sector

Our understanding of adolescence has fundamentally changed over the past several decades. New research highlights the diminished culpability of adolescent offenders and their potential responsiveness to preventive interventions based on evidence-based risk- and needs-assessments. Our new understanding creates an opportunity to reimagine and redesign the systems and policies that affect adolescents involved in the justice system.

In this webinar, we will explore the ways in which the justice sector—including the juvenile and criminal justice systems—can better incorporate new understandings of adolescent development into their practices and policies. Two members of the expert committee that authored The Promise of Adolescence: Realizing Opportunity for All Youth, Beth Cauffman (University of California, Irvine) and Susan Mangold (Juvenile Law Center) will explore adolescent development science and opportunities for continued reform in the justice sector. Practitioners, advocates, researchers, parents, and adolescents are encouraged to register.

Webinar: The vaping epidemic: Troubling trends and implications for youth cannabis use prevention and policy

Webinar: The vaping epidemic: Troubling trends and implications for youth cannabis use prevention and policy

The first part of this webinar will present the latest data on national and regional trends in adolescent and young adult cannabis use and vaping, as well as emerging research on unique risks from cross-fading (i.e., simultaneous use of cannabis and alcohol). Research on perceived risk of cannabis use, trends in drugged-driving, and the negative cognitive, academic, and mental health consequences of cannabis use will also be discussed – including a specific focus on how prevention specialists can use this research to inform their work. The second part will review the characteristics of the evolving cannabis market such as increasing potency, flavors, and product diversification, and marketing practices driving the vaping epidemic, and discuss policy approaches to address these risks. Lastly, it will discuss the role that participants can play in mobilizing community stakeholders to affect cannabis regulatory practices and protect public health, and how a clearer understanding of what is driving the youth vaping epidemic could inform these approaches.
