Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training - ASIST

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training - ASIST

What is ASIST?

      Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is for everyone 16 or older-regardless of prior experience-who wants to be able to provide suicide first aid. Shown by major studies to significantly reduce suicidality, the ASIST model teaches effective intervention skill while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community.

 Who should attend?

    Ultimately, ASIST is founded on the principle that everyone can make a difference in preventing suicide: Regardless of experience, profession or education. The more people in the community who have suicide intervention training, the more likely it is they will be able to identify someone at risk and intervene to keep them safe.

    We are all at risk. Anyone is welcome to come and learn how to foster hope to those in crisis.

Webinar: Addressing mental health through cross-sector collaboration

Webinar: Addressing mental health through cross-sector collaboration

The national Creating Healthy Communities: Arts + Public Health in America initiative has recently released a white paper that presents a case for why cross-sector collaboration is critically needed to address the complex issues that limit health in the US. This white paper frames the value of arts and culture for advancing health and well-being in communities, and offers examples of impactful cross-sector collaborations that engage arts and culture to address five critical public health issues - collective trauma, racism, social isolation and exclusion, mental health and chronic disease.

Webinar: Trauma-informed workplaces: Practice applications in equity, empathy, and employee development

Webinar: Trauma-informed workplaces: Practice applications in equity, empathy, and employee development

Building a more compassionate workplace can feel overwhelming. After researching best practices and employee experiences for the last five years, Toby and Delena have found some emerging practices that can change the way people show up at work. We call it “Human at Work”. This webinar will help participants understand what trauma-informed approaches might begin to look like when applied to workplace policy, management, and employee experience.

Prior to the webinar, participants are invited to take the no-cost Human at Work Snapshot Survey and discover how their results compare to other employers across the six core domains.

Presenters:

  • Delena Meyer, Owner and Strategist, Way Enough Decision Coaching - Delena brings more than two decades of expertise and application in the fields of public health, prevention, and human services. Her uncanny ability to blend vulnerability and humor into the hardest of subjects and her commitment to bringing the research of social determinants of health, ACEs, and trauma-informed approaches into the mainstream makes her unique in her field. Whether she’s leading a workshop to help others get up to speed on these important subjects, securing funding for great programs, or offering valuable perspective and guidance for business leaders, Delena is a fierce advocate of trauma-informed communication, connection, and practice across all sectors.
  • Toby Lucich, Managing Partner and Founder, Kinetic Health - One of Toby's many talents is finding patterns where others don't see them. Recombining data and expert insights to improved patient (or employee, or stakeholder) experiences has long been a part of Toby's work in organizations. Early work at Southwest Washington Medical Center focused on understanding the value of improved patient experiences, from process change initiatives, to scheduling design reviews, to technology-enabled patient and provider experiences. These early experiences sparked a passion for data-driven investments, as well as a deep appreciation for intentional communications and education as part of lasting change efforts. By founding Kinetic Health, Toby delivers measurable results to clients. Sure, he's good with words, but he's still a numbers guy at heart, and he studies his clients' numbers until patterns emerge that inform strategy and solutions. He's not happy until there's a meaningful, measurable change in the metrics that matter.

Webinar: The opioid crisis in rural areas: The view from prevention

Webinar: The opioid crisis in rural areas: The view from prevention

In spring 2015, the HIV outbreak caused by injection drug use in rural Scott County, Indiana, made headlines around the world. More than 200 cases were confirmed in the town of Austin, affecting one-fifth of its population of 4,200. This rural county faced multiple challenges in addressing the outbreak: poverty, high unemployment, and limited access to medical care, compounded by a devastating shortage of substance use disorder treatment and recovery services.

Today, nearly all the people who contracted HIV during the 2015 outbreak are virally suppressed. In just four years, the number of people in recovery has increased by 1000%, new Hepatitis C cases are declining, and new HIV cases have plummeted by over 97% to just 5 in 2018.

In this 1.5 hour webinar, Dr. Ryan Westergaard of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health shares insights on some of the upstream life events, traumas, and challenges that may contribute to opioid misuse for people living in rural communities. Dr. Will Cooke of Scott County will provide an overview of the community-based approach that is helping to reclaim the lives of people with opioid use disorder and transform Scott County.

POSTPONED - Liquor and Cannabis Board listen and learn forum: Draft conceptual rules regarding voluntary licensee consultation and education program rules

POSTPONED - Liquor and Cannabis Board listen and learn forum: Draft conceptual rules regarding voluntary licensee consultation and education program rules

POSTPONED - The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) is hosting a Listen and Learn forum about draft conceptual rules regarding the voluntary cannabis licensee consultation and education program.

The meeting originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 11, 20020 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. has been changed to Wednesday, March 17, 2020, from 1:00 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. via zoom only. This meeting is being conducted in a virtual environment in alignment with guidance and recommendations issued by the Governor’s office.

As you may recall, the Board began to consider revisions to existing enforcement guidelines by initiating a formal rule inquiry under in October, 2018. Those efforts were extended by the passage of Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill (ESSB) 5318 during the 2019 regular session of the Washington State legislature, and a completely redesigned penalty rule framework was adopted on January 22, 2020.

ESSB 5318 emphasized a strong focus on compliance, education, and enforcement in the oversight of the regulated cannabis market. The bill mandated that in addition to revising existing penalty rules, that the Board adopt rules to perfect and expand existing programs for compliance education for licensed cannabis businesses and their employees. The program must include recommendations on abating violations described in chapter 69.50 RCW, and be developed in consultation with licensees and their employees. The Board approved the filing of a CR101 on July 17, 2019 as WSR 19-15-074 to begin this work.

Following recruitment of licensees, WSLCB held two meetings to develop the draft conceptual rules we’ll be discussing during this Listen and Learn session. These draft conceptual rules reflect an engaged and inclusive developmental process that embodies not only WSLCB’s commitment to regulatory stability and consistency, but the intent of ESSB 5318, and the input of licensees.  

An agenda is attached to help you prepare. Please come prepared to offer feedback and suggestions regarding this new rule section and the draft conceptual rules.

Please remember that we are still in the developmental phase of rulemaking, and these are not proposed or final rules. To help you prepare for this listen/learn/contribute forum, please review the guidance document prepared for this and future forums.

Take Down Tobacco National Day of Action

Take Down Tobacco National Day of Action

UPDATE:
In light of public gatherings being canceled due to COVID-19, a #TakeDownTobacco Digital Power Wall has been created!

This tool allows you to tell the world why YOU are in this fight. In 10 seconds, you'll have a customized graphic that you can share on social media. Plus, your statement will be featured on a rolling display on the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids website. Event organizers will use the display to educate their peers and decision-makers about why we must protect kids by standing up to the tobacco and vaping industries.  

Plus, the Power Wall will take any Twitter or Instagram post that uses the hashtag #TakeDownTobacco – and will automatically put them on the display too.

Continue reading for addtional information:

From the Take Down Tobacco website.  Take Down Tobacco is a program of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids

The Take Down Tobacco National Day of Action is a day of activism where communities across the globe rally to push for the first tobacco-free generation. Youth tobacco rates are at a 20-year high in the U.S. due to the worsening youth e-cigarette epidemic, and tobacco is still the No. 1 cause of death in the U.S. and across the globe. On March 18, 2020, students, teachers, parents, elected leaders, health professionals, advocates and concerned citizens just like you are standing up to Take Down Tobacco.

What is Take Down Tobacco?

Webinar: The science of hope

Webinar: The science of hope

This presentation will introduce the science of hope and its ability to 1: buffer adversity and stress, 2: lead to positive outcomes, and 3: is a strength that can be nurtured with targeted intervention. Hope is an important protective factor that enables individuals and families to thrive.  Hope is also an important coping resource to vicarious trauma and burnout among service providers.  This workshop will present the science of Hope as a psychological strength in our ability to cope with traumatic experiences and flourish toward future goals.  This presentation will show how (1) hope predicts adaptive outcomes, (2) hope buffers the effects of adversity, and (3) hope can be influenced and sustained.  This workshop will also present “hands-on” tools to assess and nurture hope across the lifespan. Attendees will be invited to participate in small group discussions looking at their work from a hope centered approach. Attendees will also be asked to examine how they are a pathway for clients to achieve goals and how they can help clients see them as pathways and not barriers.

Presenter:

Kody Russell is the Executive Director of Kitsap Strong and an engaging and entertaining “MASTER Trainer” certified in the ACEInterface NEAR sciences (neuroscience, epigenetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences – ACEs, & resiliency) curriculum, who uses storytelling & lived experience to help people understand complex information.

Webinar: Meeting the social and emotional needs of students: A multi-tiered approach

Webinar: Meeting the social and emotional needs of students: A multi-tiered approach

While schools are well-aware of the importance of supporting the social, emotional, and mental health of their students, these supports are often fragmented, resulting in patchwork programming that strains limited resources and leaves many children without the services they need.

Multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) offer a practical response to this challenge. This webinar will explore a process for developing MTSS that address the social and emotional needs of all students. Specifically, we will examine practical approaches to:

  • Integrating into classroom instruction and school-wide policies practices that promote social and emotional learning (SEL)
  • Selecting and administering SEL assessments and mental health screeners to identify struggling students
  • Selecting and implementing evidence-based interventions using data-driven processes
  • Establishing clear roles and referral processes for students with significant mental health needs
  • Identifying and securing outside funding to support comprehensive SEL and mental health systems

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

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

Adolescence—the developmental period that spans ages 10 through 25—is a period of growth and learning that provides opportunities for lifelong impact. Access to appropriate health care services is important for adolescents, both to ensure their well-being today, as they experience the bumps and stresses of adolescent life, and to ensure their well-being for a lifetime by addressing behaviors that impact their long-term health, such as diet, exercise, and substance use. Yet many adolescents – particularly ethnic and racial minority adolescents – face a variety of barriers to accessing health care, such as financial barriers, privacy concerns, and long wait times. In addition, many of the health issues adolescents confront are rooted in the social determinants of health (e.g., income, physical environment, housing, etc.) and driven by underlying social and economic inequalities.

This webinar will explore the opportunities for creating an adolescent-friendly health care system. Two members of the expert committee that authored The Promise of Adolescence: Realizing Opportunity for All Youth, Claire Brindis (University of California, San Francisco) and Stephen Russell (University of Texas at Austin) will discuss recent advances in our understanding of adolescence and opportunities for applying them to support the health of all young people. Practitioners, advocates, researchers, parents, and adolescents are encouraged to register.

38th Annual Virtual Protecting Our Children Conference

38th Annual Virtual Protecting Our Children Conference

The National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) Board of Directors and staff have made the difficult decision, after careful consideration and comprehensive evaluation of currently available information related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, to cancel the 38th Annual Protecting Our Children Conference in Denver, Colorado, scheduled to take place Sunday, March 29–Wednesday, April 1. NICWA has been closely monitoring and following recommendations for best practices as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Supporting the health and well-being of Native children and families is central to NICWA’s mission, and keeping people safe, especially during these rapidly developing circumstances, is paramount. As the largest national gathering of advocates for American Indian and Alaska Native children and families, we recognize our responsibility to consider the safety of families, tribes, and communities and not convene a large public gathering.

What is the 38th Annual Virtual Protecting Our Children Conference?

The 38th Annual Virtual Protecting Our Children Conference will be an opportunity for attendees to participate in the conference from their communities. We will highlight several keynote presentations as well as workshops available to view as webinars. The virtual conference will take place over the same dates as conference: March 30–April 1. NICWA will be in contact with presenters with more information in the week of March 16.
