Webinar: Neurobiology of opioid misuse and addiction

Webinar: Neurobiology of opioid misuse and addiction

The Center for Rural Opioid Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery (CROP+TR) aims to provide training and technical assistance to rural communities for prevention, treatment, and recovery from opioid misuse. This webinar is part of a CROP+TR webinar series for prevention specialists on “Connecting Prevention to Treatment and Recovery for Opioid Use Disorder”.

As with any disease or health condition, addiction to opioids is biological in nature. In the first webinar of the series, “Neurobiology of Opioid Misuse and Addiction”, Dr. Julianne Jett will review the basics of neuronal signaling and discuss how brain function changes in response to prolonged opioid use.

CROP+TR is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and led by faculty from the Washington State University College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences, the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, the College of Nursing, and Extension. To learn more about CROP+TR activities, visit www.croptr.org.

Webinar: The federal response to COVID-19: Supporting care for substance use disorder in rural america

During the COVID-19 crisis, the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) is leading the effort to ensure continuity of care for people with substance use disorder. The Trump Administration is mobilizing the Federal government to ensure the approximately 20 million Americans who struggle with the disease of addiction can access and continue to receive treatment and recovery support services, while keeping themselves and healthcare professionals safe from unnecessary exposure to COVID-19. In this effort, the Administration understands that there are many barriers to addiction-related care in rural America that present unique challenges to helping people get healthy and maintain their recovery. On this rural stakeholder call, senior Agency officials will share the unprecedented steps that have been taken to increase access to care in rural areas, support rural health care and treatment providers, and provide funding and other resources to assist rural communities impacted by substance use disorder during this public health emergency.

The Rural Office Hours are dedicated time to support coalition staff, leaders and volunteers implement their work and get technical assistance for program planning. These are drop-in meetings with no formal agenda or required preparation. Rural Representatives and staff are ready and waiting to share about the Rural Network, or support providers with prevention. 

Who We Are

The Rural Network is a group of volunteers and leaders across Washington state building resiliency and safeguarding youth. We all represent rural populations and create a unified prevention approach. We’re parents, youth, school staff, business owners, medical professionals, law enforcement, government workers, faith-based organizations, and more. Together we’re convening a network of rural voices and developing supports to meet population needs.

The Rural Network is an initiative of Prevent, funded by the Youth Marijuana Prevention & Education Program of the Washington State Department of Health. Huge support comes from the fiscal agent, ESD 112. Prevent has been connecting and supporting communities since 2003. Additional initiatives are funded by state and federal grants, made possible by volunteers like you.

Who We Serve

We represent the voices of rural populations across Washington. A map of rural communities is located on our website at www.preventcoalition.org/rural

Our Work

We’re identifying key populations in Washington, assessing the unique risk and protective factors rural communities face, developing tools and supports, uncovering the greatest gaps in prevention/education resources and seeking to bridge these gaps. Together we’ll discover what works and what doesn’t with prevention in rural communities.

More Information

Visit www.preventcoaliton.org/rural. This meeting is open to all who work/live/play in rural communities, who serve rural populations, who self identify as rural or anyone who is simply interested in this program. Contact preventcoalition@esd112.org for more details.

Data sources like the HYS can be a bit daunting. Nevertheless, at the same time, understanding the behavioral health challenges and other experiences our youth are having is paramount to effective engagement. Our comfort with data can ultimately support the health of our young people, the financial stability of our organization regarding grant application and donor communication and ultimately make us a stronger more productive source for change. The session will show how to use the Healthy Youth Survey to find local information, compare it to statewide statistics, and suggest ways of using that information to adjust program and secure additional funding.

LCB-Prevention Virtual Roundtable

LCB-Prevention Virtual Roundtable

Hello Prevention and public health partners:   

We hope you will join WA State Liquor and Cannabis Board Chair, Jane Rushford, for our first-time-ever all virtual LCB-Prevention Roundtable on Monday, June 8th, from 10a-12p via WebEx. Register in advance here: https://tinyurl.com/LCBJune8th. See flyer for additional information.

The goal of the Roundtable is for LCB leadership to hear from you about how LCB's rules and the products we regulate are impacting the communities you serve, as well as share suggestions and solutions. It’s a chance to let LCB leadership know where you are and share your knowledge with them. I’m working with a handful of prevention folks who have come forward to help plan and make sure the topics and format are as useful as possible to everyone. Stay tuned for an agenda when we have it.

Note that this is for prevention and public health practitioners only. If there are other partners you’d like to be there (coalition members from other sectors, etc), let me know so I can approve their registration.

We appreciate your partnership as always and urge you to take care of yourselves and each other! Looking forward to “seeing” you all in June.

... Cheers, Sara

POSTPONED - Marijuana Research in Washington: 4th biennial symposium

POSTPONED - Marijuana Research in Washington: 4th biennial symposium

This message is to let you know that the symposium “Marijuana Research in Washington: People, Products and Places,” originally scheduled for June 9, 2020 has been postponed.

We are living in unprecedented times, and though we did consider keeping the symposium as a virtual event,  we feel that the spirit of networking and collaboration that has been a trademark of these events would be lost online. We also considered that a full day of online presentations would be disruptive to the lives of many of us who are trying to balance family needs, overwhelmed Wi-Fi systems, and professional lives.

As things settle, we will schedule the Symposium for sometime between Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.

Thanks for your interest and with wishes of health and well being,

Bia Carlini, on behalf of the Symposium organizing committee

Webinar: Managing your mind during stress

Webinar: Managing your mind during stress

We all know about mindfulness. We’ve read the articles and books, listened to the speakers and the podcasts. But how do we integrate mindfulness into our lives, in a meaningful way? Mike Sacco has been quietly living a life of meditation and mindfulness while working, being in relationship as husband, father, friend, and not incidentally the founder and director of the UDistrict Foundation Mentoring Program in Spokane.

Goal:
Practical ideas and practices so that we can use mindfulness in the workplace and relationships. This will be about the inner landscape that impacts relationships between mentoring program staff or mentor and mentee.

Course Content:

• A brief working definition of mindfulness: Being present:
- Attention or bringing presence.
- Intention or bringing our best selves to relationships and circumstances.
• Barriers to being present and bringing presence.
• Pathways to present/presence.
• Personal practices:
- Sitting meditation (various types)
- Walking meditation
- Guided meditation
- Reminders
- Writing
- Resources

Life changing objectives for attendees:
I’m unconcerned about what any of us learn in this brief time together. I’m hopeful that we all take away one change that edges us closer to sanity. Just one thing that makes a difference in the parts of life that are really hard. My husband. My daughter. My coworker. The constant activity in my mind that I can’t shut off.

Webinar: CADCA GOT OUTCOMES Award

Webinar: CADCA GOT OUTCOMES Award

Upcoming GOT Outcomes! Webinar

Mark your calendars for the GOT Outcomes! orientation webinar on Tuesday, June 16, at 1 pm EDT to discuss the application process.
Register today!

CADCA’s GOT Outcomes! Awards recognize coalitions that achieve measurable success in community-level substance use and misuse prevention-related outcomes by implementing a comprehensive and feasible plan guided by local data. Based on the achieved outcomes, applicants apply to one of three award categories: Coalition in Focus (short-term outcomes), Coalition of Excellence (intermediate outcomes) or Coalition of the Year (long-term outcomes). They begin a rigorous two phase application process requiring them to clearly communicate their story and contribution to community-level outcomes.

Phase I

Coalitions select one substance use or misuse issue which they helped address and would like to highlight in this process. They show the comprehensive steps they have taken to reach short, intermediate or long-term outcomes. This is presented through CADCA’s six products that are used and developed by coalitions to address their community’s specific needs, including:

  • Community Assessment
  • Logic Model
  • Strategic and Action Plan
  • Evaluation Plan
  • Evaluation Communication Plan
  • Sustainability Plan

Phase II

Coalitions chosen to move on to phase II will receive personal technical assistance to further strengthen their application. They transform their work and present it in the form of 1) a PowerPoint with an overview of the coalition’s community, work and data to support the outcomes and 2) an infographic to illustrate their community-level outcomes.

Awards

Coalitions that excel in one of the three categories will win:

  • Free lodging, travel and registration for one coalition member to attend CADCA’s Annual National Leadership Forum
  • A custom award with their coalition’s name and successes engraved on the front
  • Recognition in CADCA’s Annual Printed Coalitions newsletter, on CADCA’s GOT OUTCOMES! Program website and other CADCA communications
  • A special feature during CADCA’s GOT OUTCOMES! Workshop at the National Leadership Forum
  • Consideration for coalition leaders to participate in CADCA training/leadership opportunities (e.g., CADCA Advisory boards)
  • Eligibility to participate in the Graduate Coalition Academy (GCA)

We have been closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), state and local health departments and our medical experts throughout this emerging public health situation. We are working to minimize the risk to all, especially those with lung disease or an impaired immune system. With that in mind, we are taking extra measures to adapt our mission delivery to a temporary virtual platform.

Rural Network Meeting

Rural Network Meeting

Join Meeting

Visit https://www.preventcoalition.org/rural/get-involved/ for a calendar invitation.  

Who We Are

The Rural Network is a group of volunteers and leaders across Washington state building resiliency and safeguarding youth. We all represent rural populations and create a unified prevention approach. We’re parents, youth, school staff, business owners, medical professionals, law enforcement, government workers, faith-based organizations, and more. Together we’re convening a network of rural voices and developing supports to meet population needs.

The Rural Network is an initiative of Prevent, funded by the Youth Marijuana Prevention & Education Program of the Washington State Department of Health. Huge support comes from the fiscal agent, ESD 112. Prevent has been connecting and supporting communities since 2003. Additional initiatives are funded by state and federal grants, made possible by volunteers like you.

Who We Serve

We represent the voices of rural populations across Washington. A map of rural communities is located on our website at www.preventcoalition.org/rural

Our Work

We’re identifying key populations in Washington, assessing the unique risk and protective factors rural communities face, developing tools and supports, uncovering the greatest gaps in prevention/education resources and seeking to bridge these gaps. Together we’ll discover what works and what doesn’t with prevention in rural communities.

More Information

Visit www.preventcoaliton.org/rural. This meeting is open to all who work/live/play in rural communities, who serve rural populations, who self identify as rural or anyone who is simply interested in this program. Contact preventcoalition@esd112.org for more details.

Webinar: Embracing Adversity: Employing resilience and a growth mindset in complex times

Webinar: Embracing Adversity: Employing resilience and a growth mindset in complex times

All too often, our young people are engaged and invested in structures that run counter to the development of resilience and a growth mindset. Young people are discovering they lack the flexibility and malleability they need to manage adversity.
Resilience is the ability to achieve in the face of adversity: to bend, rather than break. So, how can mentors help youth become more resilient, and what are the structures around us that get in the way. Let’s explore how our differences, struggles and investments make us more gracious and productive participants in these complex times. (This workshop is designed for students, parents, educators and the community at large).

Learning objectives:
• Participants will gain an understanding of the nature of crisis and the disorganization and recovery that follows.
• Participants will understand the foundations of resilience building and connect these structures to practical application.
• Participants will become invigorated in their work to support the self-worth, esteem and general success of those they serve.

2020 Beyond Paper Tigers Trauma-Informed Conference

Resilience Through Diversity: The Power of Trauma-Informed DEI Practices

In nature, ecosystems harness resiliency through the biodiversity of life. Similarly, in our communities and society, our strength comes from not only the diversity of a population (sexual orientation, race, religion, gender, cultural background, class, neurological makeup, etc.), but also the intentional practices and opportunities of equity and inclusion. Through equity we promote impartiality and fairness by ensuring equal access for all. This includes acknowledging and correcting imbalances by addressing the root causes of disparities. Inclusion is the intention of welcoming and valuing the diversity of a community. Diversity is collective resilience, an idea far more effective than individual resilience alone.
