Webinar: Between two extremes: The path forward in marijuana policy

Webinar: Between two extremes: The path forward in marijuana policy

Today’s marijuana is much more potent than in the past — with pot edibles, candies, cookies, ice creams, and waxes being up to 99% THC. In comparison, marijuana in the Woodstock era contained 5% THC. William Jones will take participants through the latest facts and figures on what is really happening in legalized states and the overall goal of the legalization movement.

 

Objectives:

  • Examine the impact of marijuana on communities — ranging from drugged driving and youth marijuana use to law enforcement concerns and public health costs.
  • Discuss the facts the media have ignored as the United States rushes to legalize marijuana.
  • Explore the complex concerns surrounding social justice issues.

Webinar: Managing the Impact of COVID19 in children, families and communities through prevention strategies

Webinar: Managing the Impact of COVID19 in children, families and communities through prevention strategies

Description: 

The world climate of uncertainty, fear and worry enveloping the COVID pandemic has created new challenges for many people.  Prevention professionals are concerned about the rise in negative mental health outcomes and projected increases in suicide risk, domestic violence, and substance use.  While that risk appears to be escalating, COVID19 has made prevention both more relatable and more relevant.  This webinar takes a look at some of the challenges caused by the uncertainty of COVID19, including chronic stress, emotional distress, and loss through the lens of prevention.  It will provide strategies and solutions for health promotion, with practical tips that translate theory into workable practice.  It will also provide guidelines for implementing prevention strategies and educating clients on prevention.  A workbook via a downloadable PDF will accompany the training to reinforce the concepts provided in the webinar and for use as an ongoing resource.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify at least 3 ways people are coping with the uncertainty of COVID
2. Name 2 ways in which prevention strategies can be used to address emerging COVID concerns
3. Distinguish between emotional distress and trauma
4. Name 3 ways that post traumatic growth manifests itself
5. Identify their personal style of resilience

Webinar: Addressing emerging prevention issues: Building strategic partnerships to improve health equity

Webinar: Addressing emerging prevention issues: Building strategic partnerships to improve health equity

A primary goal of prevention practitioners working to prevent substance use and misuse is to increase behavioral health equity—that is, to ensure that all community members have access to the same opportunities.

One important way to do this is by engaging partners in prevention planning efforts that represent, or have established relationships with, members of our communities who are traditionally under-represented. Strategic partnerships can provide access to marginalized populations and insight into the prevention needs of under-represented groups. They can help us understand substance use patterns that may not be captured through traditional data collection efforts, and the conditions that contribute to these patterns. They can help us develop the relationships and resources needed to identify and implement prevention efforts that are most likely to be effective and be sustained. And they can also help to ensure that our work doesn’t inadvertently exacerbate existing inequities.

This webinar is part of an online learning series along with a peer-sharing call to be held on August 13, 2020. This online learning series is designed to help practitioners cultivate and sustain these strategic partnerships. To register for this webinar, click the "Register" button above. To register for the peer-sharing call, click here: Peer-Sharing Call Event Page

During the webinar, we will explore the relationship of partnership development to health equity, strategies for identifying these critical partners, and approaches to building these relationships.

Webinar: VLS Session 4: How we can culturally navigate between the two communities

Webinar: VLS Session 4: How we can culturally navigate between the two communities

The National Hispanic and Latino Prevention Technology Transfer Center, and the National American Indian and Alaskan Native Prevention Technology Transfer Center are happy to invite you to a series of Virtual Learning Sessions: CULTURE IS PREVENTION.

Culture is fundamental to develop a successful career or a successful organization, and building that culture is everyone's responsibility. Despite recent progress, health disparities continue a challenge among Latino/Hispanic, Native Americans, and Alaska Natives, compared with the US population as a whole. National data show the need to enhance services and access to services for culturally and linguistically diverse communities. Providing culturally and linguistically appropriate prevention services requires an understanding of cultural competence/Humility.

This session is the 4th of 4 sessions.
Session 1: Different Cultures; One Vision
Session 2: Spirituality In The Native American culture And Its Role In Prevention And Healing
Session 3: Spirituality in the Hispanic and Latino Culture And Its Role In Prevention And Healing
Session 4: How We Can Culturally Navigate Between The Two Communities

Webinar: Native American storytelling: Culture is prevention

Webinar: Native American storytelling: Culture is prevention

This series of sessions features traditional Native American storytelling, along with time for discussion on what can be learned from the stories, as well as the ways these stories can be incorporated by Native American providers into their work with patients.

Please note that while we encourage non-Native providers to attend these sessions to increase your cultural understanding and sensitivity, we ask that out of respect for cultural traditions, you do not use these stories as your own if they are not a part of your culture.

Native storytelling is an long honored way of teaching lessons of life. We, as Native people, need to laugh while learning. For example, laughing at how Coyote makes funny mistakes. This can teach people how to avoid behaving as Coyote does. Further, Native legends can offer stories about Creation or the Trickster. However, some stories can only be told during certain times of the year. For example, Coyote legends are only told during the winter time because that is often when Native people would be in their lodges practicing survival skills to help the tribe thrive in difficult times.

Traditionally, the storyteller needed to be an excellent psychologist and able to understand peoples’ perspectives. A story might be used in treatment to help a patient come to a realization in a culturally informed way.

Webinar: Preventing youth vaping series, Part 2: Policy recommendations and promising practices for addressing youth vaping

Webinar: Preventing youth vaping series, Part 2: Policy recommendations and promising practices for addressing youth vaping

This webinar will examine potential policy recommendations and promising practices that may help reduce and prevent youth vaping. Due to the recency of the spread of vaping, there has been insufficient time for research to confirm evidence-based programs that can specifically prevent vaping. However, based on knowledge of the risk factors for vaping, as well as of the evidence-based cigarette and tobacco product use prevention programs, several promising practices exist.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the current public health response to youth vaping
  • Review challenges to youth vaping prevention
  • Examine potential policy recommendations to prevent youth vaping
  • Identify promising prevention practices to address youth vaping

Webinar: Applying Prevention Science to Practice Series: Strategic fit and evidence-based practices in today’s prevention landscape

Webinar: Applying Prevention Science to Practice Series: Strategic fit and evidence-based practices in today’s prevention landscape

While evidence-based approaches are highly encouraged in the prevention field, it is very important to make sure strategies you select have both conceptual and practical fit, aligning with the priorities, risk and protective factors, and local issues in your community. Additionally, reviewing and weighing the evidence of effectiveness of proposed strategies gives prevention practitioners scientific support for strategy selection in a comprehensive prevention plan.

This webinar will provide an 1) overview of strategic fit and its components, providing a step-by-step process of determining best fit for strategy selection; 2) describe how selecting best fit strategies can be adapted to current conditions with COVID-19; and 3) provide the opportunity to interact with fellow participants to explore the application of these strategic fit components into the work of prevention practitioners.

Following the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to register for a learning lab where they will breakout into small work groups to discuss these concepts and how they are implemented locally. This is an opportunity to connect with other prevention practitioners nationally and share ideas and experiences in aligning priorities, selecting strategies using strategic fit, considering the context in which you do prevention and the evidence available.

Objectives:
Upon completion of this virtual learning experience, participants will be able to:
1. Define conceptual fit and understand the necessity for aligning program design with community needs.
2. Define practical fit and identify opportunities for program adaptations to improve program outcomes.
3. Identify data collection opportunities to determine program or practice effectiveness
4. Describe the effects of COVID-19 and social distancing on the implementation of evidence-based prevention practice.

Webinar: Regional Policy Council (RPC) ALEC/NCSL Virtual Summer Meeting

Given the worsening COVID-19 crisis, MHA decided to combine its two summer RPC meetings into one large virtual meeting. Although we are disappointed not to be able to travel to Orlando in July with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) or to Indianapolis in August with the National Council of State Legislatures (NCSL), we put together an exciting agenda for the virtual RPC meeting on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. EST – 4:00 p.m. EST.

The day will kick off as usual by honoring state legislative mental health champions and will be followed by deep dives in today’s most pertinent policy issues including what is working well. Participants will:

  • Learn about the dramatic increases in people taking MHA’s screenings and the alarming rates of severity for depression, anxiety, and self-harm;
  • Hear from nationally and internationally renowned experts speaking to the effects of COVID-19 on mental health;
  • Understand how policy and practices disproportionately impact communities of color and people with mental health conditions;
  • Learn about some of the nation’s best models for crisis and reentry alternatives from experts in peer services.

Webinar: Alcohol home deliveries and enforcement challenges

Webinar: Alcohol home deliveries and enforcement challenges

The pandemic is creating unprecedented shifts and changes in the alcohol marketplace adding additional challenges for Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE). With the increasing expansion of direct-to-consumer (DTC) commerce through home deliveries of alcohol comes increased risk of illegal sales to minors, unlawful activity and enforcement challenges due to limited resources. As the beverage alcohol landscape changes rapidly, there are increased responsibilities for ALE and alcohol regulatory authorities to maintain an orderly and safe alcohol marketplace and to protect the public’s health and safety from alcohol-related harms. Enforcement experts Carrie Christofes, Executive Director of the National Liquor Law Enforcement Association (NLLEA), Chief Thomas Kirby of the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority and Chief Frederick Mahony of the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission Enforcement Division will discuss the status and strategies being deployed to regulate and enforce this new era of alcohol access. Join NLLEA and NABCA for this 1 ½ hour webinar, which includes an opportunity for questions.

Webinar: Reducing polysubstance use in pregnancy

Webinar: Reducing polysubstance use in pregnancy

The use of multiple substances, including tobacco, alcohol, and opioids, during pregnancy can have negative effects on a pregnant person and the developing baby. Research suggests that polysubstance use (using more than one substance at a time) during pregnancy is common. Recent evidence suggests that polysubstance use is highest during early pregnancy.

This session of Public Health Grand Rounds will discuss adverse maternal and child health outcomes caused by polysubstance use, how data can improve our understanding of polysubstance use, and how screening and brief interventions may reduce prenatal substance exposure and improve the health of women and infants.

There will be a live question and answer segment at the end of the session. Please submit questions for this topic to grandrounds@cdc.gov.

Webinar: Native American storytelling: Culture is prevention

Webinar: Native American storytelling: Culture is prevention

This series of sessions features traditional Native American storytelling, along with time for discussion on what can be learned from the stories, as well as the ways these stories can be incorporated by Native American providers into their work with patients.

Please note that while we encourage non-Native providers to attend these sessions to increase your cultural understanding and sensitivity, we ask that out of respect for cultural traditions, you do not use these stories as your own if they are not a part of your culture.

Native storytelling is an long honored way of teaching lessons of life. We, as Native people, need to laugh while learning. For example, laughing at how Coyote makes funny mistakes. This can teach people how to avoid behaving as Coyote does. Further, Native legends can offer stories about Creation or the Trickster. However, some stories can only be told during certain times of the year. For example, Coyote legends are only told during the winter time because that is often when Native people would be in their lodges practicing survival skills to help the tribe thrive in difficult times.

Traditionally, the storyteller needed to be an excellent psychologist and able to understand peoples’ perspectives. A story might be used in treatment to help a patient come to a realization in a culturally informed way.

Webinar: Cultural humility series, Part VII: Four directions of diversity - honoring differences

Webinar: Cultural humility series, Part VII: Four directions of diversity - honoring differences

Description

Honoring Differences is a different approach to diversity. The approach is not to look for blame, but to explore the interconnectedness between people. If the system is out of harmony, it will cause problems among people. It also provides leaders with a means to more effectively work with different kinds of people. The concepts that help us to see differently are shared through the Teachings of the Medicine Wheel, which describe the principles, laws, and values that govern the universe. If we work in harmony with the universal system, diversity issues in communities will minimize. If we work out of harmony with the principle, we will have chaos.

The Principles and Concepts are harmony, balance, Seen and the Unseen World, Conflict as a Guidance System, Interconnectedness, Spirit and Intent, circles, cycles, the natural order, and the Four Laws of Change.

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will examine a set of principles, concepts, and values that enhance interpersonal relationships.
  • Participants will acquire knowledge on the principles of Servant Leadership: The Honor of One is the Honor of All.
  • Participants will learn a new way of seeing and understanding reality from different perspectives and that the more differences, the greater the strength.
  • Participants will examine the concept that there is only one race, the human race.

Webinar: Look, listen and learn: Advancing early achievement in young children of color

Webinar: Look, listen and learn: Advancing early achievement in young children of color

The achievement gap in Washington State continues to be “led” by children of color. Meanwhile, children of color also lead in television and media consumption. By showcasing Black and Indigenous people and people of color learning, teaching, and exploring, television becomes a tool to provide positive media representation of diversity as well as greater access to early learning principles in more homes. As substance misuse prevention professionals, our role is to address health disparities and improve health outcomes in our communities. This webinar will explore the research behind what works best to promote school readiness and success and will highlight the Look, Listen and Learn (LL+L) program. LL+L is a new concept in public access television. As an early listening educational program, LL+L helps bridge the achievement gap by featuring local enrichment venues and applying brain development knowledge to foster learning and enhance caregiver-child relationships.


Presenter:
Val Thomas-Matson, is the Founder/Producer of Look, Listen and Learn. Val is a community organizer/activist with deep experience in media. In addition to early work at KING TV, she created, produced, and hosted the daily community affairs talk show Communities in Action for King County Government TV for three years.

The achievement gap in Washington State continues to be “led” by children of color. Meanwhile, children of color also lead in television and media consumption. By showcasing Black and Indigenous people and people of color learning, teaching, and exploring, television becomes a tool to provide positive media representation of diversity as well as greater access to early learning principles in more homes. As substance misuse prevention professionals, our role is to address health disparities and improve health outcomes in our communities. This webinar will explore the research behind what works best to promote school readiness and success and will highlight the Look, Listen and Learn (LL+L) program. LL+L is a new concept in public access television. As an early listening educational program, LL+L helps bridge the achievement gap by featuring local enrichment venues and applying brain development knowledge to foster learning and enhance caregiver-child relationships.

Val Thomas-Matson, is the Founder/Producer of Look, Listen, and Learn. Val is a community organizer/activist with deep experience in media. In addition to early work at KING TV, she created, produced, and hosted the daily community affairs talk show Communities in Action for King County Government TV for three years.

International Overdose Awareness Day

International Overdose Awareness Day

International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held on 31 August each year and aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It also acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have died or had a permanent injury as a result of drug overdose.

International Overdose Awareness Day spreads the message that overdose death is preventable.

Thousands of people die each year from drug overdose. They come from all walks of life.

Do you recognise the signs and symptoms of overdose? What is the impact of drug use and overdose on family, friends and those experiencing it?

In these videos, we hear from people who have been affected by drug use and overdose.
