Webinar: Addressing racism through cross-sector collaboration

Webinar: Addressing racism 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 U.S. 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.

In this fourth webinar in a series hosted by the University of Florida Center for Arts in Medicine, the focus is how to address racism.

Community trauma and child well-being: A deeper dive into the future of healing

Community trauma and child well-being: A deeper dive into the future of healing

Mark your calendars for the upcoming 2020 NW Children’s Foundation Forum: Community Trauma and Child Well-Being: A Deeper Dive into the Future of Healing. We’re thrilled to welcome back Dr. Shawn Ginwright, Professor of Education and Africana Studies at San Francisco State University, as our keynote speaker, and Seattle pediatrician Dr. Ben Danielson as our panel moderator. Together, they’ll guide us through thought-provoking discussions, challenge our thinking and share their expert perspectives. 

Historical and intergenerational trauma is real and far reaching. The cumulative emotional wounding from generation to generation can contribute to many negative health outcomes for individuals including PTSD, depression and Type 2 diabetes – as well as impacting the community as a whole.

This year’s Forum will focus on the “how” of our work. How can we best understand and begin to address community trauma? What practical tools are available for those of us who work with children, youth and families to start the healing process?  

•  Delve into topics of racism, inequality and poverty and explore more collective approaches to healing.

•  Hear from a panel of community leaders who focus on healing in their approach to working with individuals, communities and systems.

•  Walk away with concrete strategies that support children and youth (and the adults working with them) in a holistic, strength-based way.

Available in-person and via Webstream.

Webinar: Implement workforce diversity strategies to effectively address disparities in mental health

Webinar: Implement workforce diversity strategies to effectively address disparities in mental health

As our population becomes increasingly diverse, mental health organizations and providers see the value of employing diverse staff that reflect the people they serve. The Pacific Southwest MHTTC has developed a self-assessment instrument to help mental health organizations identify and implement workforce diversity strategies in six critical areas.

This webinar will highlight the importance of increasing workforce diversity for achieving health equity. Presenters will briefly outline the purpose of the six areas in strengthening workforce diversity. Then participants will have the opportunity to complete the tool and explore the different aspects of each area. This session is geared towards those in mental health organizations who are interested in assessing the importance of a culturally responsive workforce and taking action.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Explore the importance and benefits of a diverse workforce in effectively addressing mental health disparities for community populations.
  2. Describe the critical components needed to assess the successes and challenges for mental health organizations in building a diverse workforce.
  3. Identify how your organization is doing in each area and overall to identify areas of focus.
  4. Identify action steps to address areas where organizations are more limited and incorporate these action steps into an existing organizational plan (e.g., strategic, cultural competency, or diversity plan).

Webinar: Making the steps of the Strategic Prevention Framework work for you - Assessment

Webinar: Making the steps of the Strategic Prevention Framework work for you - Assessment

SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) provides practitioners with comprehensive guidance to more effectively address substance misuse and related behavioral health problems in their communities. This seven-part webinar series will explore this five-step, data-driven process to identify genuine prevention needs, build capacity and plans to address those needs, implement effective programs and interventions, and evaluate and continually improve prevention efforts.

At each step of the SPF, and in separate sessions, practitioners will learn to integrate the guiding principles of cultural competence and sustainability to help support the implementation of SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF). 

Certificates for prevention hours will be available upon registration and completion of the webinar.

Each webinar is one hour and will begin at 8:00 a.m. PST

  • February 25, Part 1: Assessment, will introduce the SPF and explore how to identify the needs of the community using data.

  • March 24, Part 2: Capacity Building, will guide participants through the process of improving community readiness and increasing the resources available to address prevention efforts.

  • April 21, Part 3: Planning, will prepare participants to plan to address identified needs

  • May 19, Part 4: Implementation, will provide participants with the tools needed to implement prevention programs, policies, and practices with fidelity and effectiveness.

  • June 23, Part 5: Evaluation, will offer helpful guides for the collection and analysis of prevention strategies and teach participants how to modify programming for future enhanced results.

  • July 21, Part 6: Sustainability, will provide participants with the elements of a sustainable prevention program and how to integrate sustainability into each step of the SPF.

  • August 25, Part 7: Cultural Competency, will prepare the participant to demonstrate cultural competence at the individual, organizational and system-level at each step of the SPF.

Webinar: Using environmental strategies to reduce substance use

Webinar: Using environmental strategies to reduce substance use

This webinar, developed by the Central East PTTC, 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: The promise of adolescence: Realizing opportunity for all youth - Child welfare sector

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

Our understanding of adolescence has fundamentally changed over the past several decades. New insights from research reveal how changes in brain structure and function (such as the strengthening of connections within and between brain regions and the pruning away of unused connections) that occur during adolescence afford young people a remarkable capacity to learn, adapt to changes, and explore their own creativity.

But this understanding is not reflected in the current structure of the child welfare system, which was primarily designed to meet the needs of younger children. Adolescents’ more advanced developmental needs and abilities are not fully incorporated in the system’s aims and methods. Moreover, there are disparities within the child welfare system, with poor children and children of color being disproportionally referred to the child welfare system.

In this webinar, two members of the expert committee that authored The Promise of Adolescence: Realizing Opportunity for All Youth, Leslie Leve (University of Oregon) and Susan Mangold (Juvenile Law Center) will explore adolescent development science and opportunities for continued reform in the child welfare system. Practitioners, advocates, researchers, parents, and adolescents are encouraged to register.

Webinar: Community-level policy responses to state marijuana legalization

Webinar: Community-level policy responses to state marijuana legalization

Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) presents the next installment of the webinar series, "Conversations: Putting Research into Action" on local regulation of marijuana sales. This month's conversation will be with Dr. Julia Dilley, who will present the findings of her recent article, "Community-level policy responses to state marijuana legalization in Washington State," published in International Journal of Drug Policy in 2017. Dr. Dilley will discuss how Washington State communities restricted marijuana sales in their jurisdictions and what local policy options are available to coalitions addressing marijuana sales in their communities too.

Webinar: Ethical issues in public health data use

Webinar: Ethical issues in public health data use

What kinds of personal information should be collected, analyzed, and shared for improving population health? In the February session of Hot Topics in Practice, two attorneys explore the legal and ethical issues related to public health data use.

This one-hour webinar begins with an overview of how the law can be an effective tool to promote public health and data sharing. The presentation will then discuss which ethical frameworks and questions are most helpful to guide our thinking as we approach data-related activities, as well as big data applications. The presenters will share case studies and action steps that help public health professionals address these seemingly intractable dilemmas and take the lead in initiating these community conversations.
