Webinar: Stigma, drugs, and policy: How language drives change

Webinar: Stigma, drugs, and policy: How language drives change

Language matters when it comes to treating substance use disorders (SUD). Stigma has been proven to have a negative impact on health outcomes, not only leading many individuals with SUD to not seek treatment, but also influencing how health professionals treat their patients. Using non-stigmatizing, person-centered, and recovery-oriented language can help providers facilitate engagement in treatment for individuals with SUD. This webinar will explore the ever-evolving landscape of language around SUD and discuss strategies for healthcare providers and allied health professionals to address stigma within your practice.

Educational Objectives:
• Discuss the importance of language in treating substance use disorders (SUD)
• Review the history and context of changing language around SUD
• Examine the evidence demonstrating the impact of stigmatizing language on the provision, quality and allocation of resources for SUD care
• Identify strategies for addressing stigma in policy and practice settings

Webinar: Working at the Intersection of Intimate partner violence and mental health: Session 1

Webinar: Working at the Intersection of Intimate partner violence and mental health: Session 1

Intimate Partner Violence and Mental Health Amidst the COVID-19 Crisis and Beyond

A large body of research has demonstrated that experiencing abuse by an intimate partner is associated with a wide range of mental health consequences, further amplified in the context of structural violence, ongoing danger, and coercive control. Less well researched, however, are the ways that people who abuse their partners engage in coercive tactics related to their partner’s mental health and use of substances as part of a broader pattern of abuse and control – tactics known as mental health and substance use coercion. This 1-hour session provides an overview of the impact of IPV on survivors’ mental health and how survivors’ safety is impacted by COVID-19 and other public crises as well as information on how to safely inquire about IPV and link to local domestic and sexual violence advocacy resources.

Note: Certificates of attendance will be provided to all who attend at least 50% (30 minutes) of the live webinar. CEUs are not available for these sessions.

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

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

On registration, use the code Discount2020Ethics for a 15% discount.

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.

This course has been endorsed by the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC). 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.

Webinar: Applying prevention science to practice: Using environmental strategies to reduce substance use

Webinar: Applying prevention science to practice: Using environmental strategies to reduce substance use

This webinar will describe the importance of environmental strategies and how they differ from individual-focused prevention programs. Environmental strategies are prevention interventions that address factors related to the context within which individuals make decisions about initiating and continuing substance use. Researchers have identified numerous risk and protective factors for engaging in substance use, which are often categorized by a socio-ecological model. Environmental strategies primarily seek to address factors found at the community and society levels of the model. The webinar will discuss the different types of environmental strategies and provide examples of evidence-based strategies. It will also walk through examples of collaborative partners needed to implement environmental strategies and the pre-implementation work that preventionists will need to complete.

Webinar: How has drinking behavior changed during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Webinar: How has drinking behavior changed during the COVID-19 pandemic?

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, states issued stay-at-home orders in March 2020. Along with those orders, many states relaxed alcohol regulations—for example, many states started to allow curbside pickup of alcohol. The popular media reported a jump in alcohol sales and anecdotal accounts of increased drinking. But how did alcohol consumption change across the nation? Were people simply having one or two more drinks? Did harmful binge drinking increase? Were the changes greater among some subgroups of the population than others? These are important public health questions because alcohol is one of the leading preventable causes of mortality in the country.

RTI funded a survey of nearly 1,000 Americans in May 2020 to assess changes in alcohol consumption and other measures of mental health from before (February) to after (April) the onset of measures to combat COVID-19. In this webinar, we talk about the different ways in which drinking changed during the pandemic and the implications for public health.

As RTI experts present the results of the survey, webinar attendees will learn whether:

  1. The COVID-19 pandemic is associated with increased alcohol consumption.
  2. The increase in drinking behavior is higher for certain genders, ethnicities, and regions.
  3. There is a need for public health monitoring of alcohol consumption during the pandemic.

Webinar: Building capacity for a public health apporach to prevention

Webinar: Building capacity for a public health apporach to prevention

Course Description:

Substance misuse and behavioral health overall, are an intrinsic part of public health. Many people with substance use disorders also live with mental health disorders, including serious mental illness, as well as preventable and treatable medical health issues. Often, the same root causes and care disparities are responsible for most or all of these issues. Therefore, substance use preventionists are often trying to reach and serve the same populations and individuals as mental and physical health care professionals. Bringing together these different fields into a comprehensive public health approach can significantly improve overall health and wellness. This webinar provides information on preparing for a public health approach from a substance use prevention perspective. This includes how preventionists can use the Strategic Prevention Framework to support the implementation of public health approach.

Objectives: 

Define a framework for a public health model
Explain what is a public health approach to prevention
Describe the stakeholders and partners necessary for a public health approach
Explore the steps to implementing a public health approach

Webinar: Taking on the “Perfect Storm”: Faith-based organizations and partnerships address critical behavioral health needs in communities of color

Webinar: Taking on the “Perfect Storm”: Faith-based organizations and partnerships address critical behavioral health needs in communities of color

July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. This July, communities are facing the “perfect storm” of crises that are deepening the disparities in mental health and wellbeing. The current COVID-19 pandemic, economic crisis, behavioral health crisis, and the civil unrest stemming from recent incidents of police brutality has impacted all of America, but disproportionately affects communities of color.

Community and faith-based organizations play an essential role in helping these communities handle deeply experienced trauma, loss, and grief. Poor access to and mistrust of health care systems leads individuals to reach out to their familiar and trusted faith-based organizations and leaders. In many cultures, spirituality is a key driver of wellbeing and hope. Faith leaders are coming together across communities to organize, support, provide, engage and instill hope.

Join this NNED virtual roundtable hosted by the NNED National Facilitation Center and SAMHSA’s Office of Behavioral Health Equity in partnership with SAMHSA’s Mental Health Technology Transfer Center Network Coordinating Office to learn how faith-based NNED partner organizations are supporting the mental health concerns of racial/ethnic minorities and providing opportunities to receive support and connection through faith-based practices and partnerships.

This NNED virtual roundtable will highlight:
- Faith-based partnerships that address the behavioral health in communities of color and augment the behavioral health workforce;
- Cultural and spiritual practices provided by faith-based organizations to strengthen community and social connectedness during times of crises;
- Faith leaders’ strategies to help diverse communities cope with trauma, loss, and grief; and
- The importance of and role of faith leaders in promoting self-care among the health care workforce, caregivers, and themselves.

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

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

On registration, use the code Discount2020Ethics for a 15% discount.

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.

This course has been endorsed by the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC). 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.

CADCA Mid-Year Training Institute

CADCA Mid-Year Training Institute

CADCA's 19th Annual Mid-Year Training Institute is becoming a virtual event. This will not be just another virtual meeting or webinar. This will be everything you're used to experiencing during our Mid-Year Training Institute and more. Participants will have opportunities to attend collaborative training sessions with leading experts in the prevention field, network with other attendees and partners from across the globe, receive CEUs and more.

CADCA has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, and we feel this is the best option to give our valued prevention advocates the experience of a lifetime while protecting your health and safety. Although some states across the nation are re-opening, many state and local guidelines will make it prohibitive for our attendees to safely travel to and from Nashville this July. After careful consideration of this and several other factors, in consultation with the CADCA Board of Directors, Coalition Advisory Committee, federal and corporate partners, we have decided that this is the safest alternative. 

As an added benefit, we have reduced the registration fee to allow those financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic the chance to participate in our event. Register today. 

This is a unique time in our collective history. Your work to prevent substance use and misuse has now become more important than ever. To ensure that CADCA continues to support you and your communities, we ask you to be a part of this event. As your national leadership organization, rest assured we are with you in working together to create safe, healthy and drug-free communities and your support at this event will bolster our collective efforts to thrive and grow during this unprecedented time.

Tobacco-Free Fundamentals Training

Tobacco-Free Fundamentals Training

The Department of Health (DOH), in partnership with the Health Care Authority and ESD 112, is offering a free online Tobacco-Free Fundamentals training on Tuesday, July 28, 8:30am-4:00pm.

Training objectives:

  • Understand the burden of tobacco uponpeople with behavioral health conditions
  • Build on your existing tobacco and tobacco cessation knowledge
  • Provide information on the latest evidence-based tobacco cessation strategies
  • Learn the latest information about electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS)
  • Review the evidence base for nicotine-free policies and steps for policy implementation

Ideal participants include health care and public health professionals who can champion treatment of tobacco use and dependence and tobacco-free policy within their agencies. The trainers will make for as engaging and interactive experience as the Zoom platform permits, including use of ‘breakout rooms’ for small group discussion.

The training is capped at 40 participants, and State Opioid Response (SOR) grant-funded agencies receive registration priority. If there are open seats as of July 14, the registration link will be posted to this page; providers and staff at other agencies are encouraged to check back at that time. 

If you have not yet participated in one of our Tobacco-Free or Tobacco Treatment Specialist trainings, we certainly hope you will join us on July 28 to learn how important it is to treat tobacco use and dependence, perhaps now more than ever given the threat that COVID-19 poses to people who smoke.

If you work at a SOR grant-funded agency and would like to register, or if you have questions about this training and/or the DOH Tobacco-Free Behavioral Health Initiative, please email Nick Fradkin at nick.fradkin@doh.wa.gov.

If you work at a SOR-funded agency and would like to register, please contact Nick Fradkin at nick.fradkin@doh.wa.gov for the registration link.
