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

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

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.

Next Event: October 26-November 6, 2020

Audience: Prevention practitioners working at the state level or in communities

Course Length: 6 hours

Certification: This course has been endorsed by the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) and meets the IC&RC’s prevention ethics requirement for prevention specialist credentialing.  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: First responder resilience & operational stress: Critical considerations as we navigate a global pandemic and civil unrest

Webinar: First responder resilience & operational stress: Critical considerations as we navigate a global pandemic and civil unrest

Operational Stress Control is a form of “psychological force protection” for an organization’s most critical and highly stressed employees. Those serving as operations leaders, as well as those on the front lines of the crisis may be dealing with an anxious and overwhelmed workforce, and may be working with extreme and persistent levels of stress that can adversely impact their own performance and wellness.

Fear of the unknown aka “Anticipatory Grief” can and will impact many as we move through this public health crisis. For first responders, the exposure rate is even higher and therefore creates greater potential risk with respect to emotional health.

We will discuss the foundations of first responder resilience and operational stress control techniques and include key considerations for law enforcement and behavioral healthcare professionals moving forward. A brief introduction will be provided by Christopher West, MSW, chief executive officer of Cascade Behavioral Health Hospital, with closing remarks offered by Mila Sardelli, National Director of Marketing and Business Development for Bayside Marin Treatment Center.

Webinar: Restorative justice practices training - 3 part series (part 3)

Webinar: Restorative justice practices training - 3 part series (part 3)

Restorative practices help build community, celebrate accomplishments, transform conflict, rebuild relationships that have been harmed, and reintegrate students who have been suspended or expelled. Both the theory and practice of Restorative Justice emphasize identifying harm, involving all stakeholders, and true accountability- repairing harm and addressing its causes. A restorative model aligns with the multi-tiered framework of PBIS and is at the heart, a prevention-based approach. In this workshop we will explore the Tier I preventative practices that serve as the foundation to this work followed by the higher-level Tier II practices that dig into repairing and restoring harm that has been caused.

Webinar: Adaptation in substance misuse prevention: Improving effectiveness and achieving better outcomes

Webinar: Adaptation in substance misuse prevention: Improving effectiveness and achieving better outcomes

In a perfect world, prevention interventions would be implemented exactly as designed and would achieve the expected positive outcomes without fail every time. But, if 2020 has taught us anything, this is not a perfect world and, sometimes, departures from a prevention program or practice’s original design and delivery are inevitable. This two-part, virtual training series, featuring a 90-minute, interactive webinar and a 90-minute peer-sharing event, will offer participants an introduction to the topic of adaptation and its role in effective prevention, and will examine how carefully planned and executed adaptations can help prevention practitioners circumvent unforeseen challenges, like those facing many communities due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The webinar will:

•    Define key adaptation-related concepts

•    List steps in the process of implementing “best fit” adaptations

•    Examine real world examples of adaptations to distill elements of success

•    Identify considerations for adapting interventions in response to changing community contexts

Strategies for bringing prevention efforts to virtual formats and specific guidance on adaptation from prevention program developers will also be discussed. Peer-sharing call participants will have an opportunity to share their experiences, pose questions and discuss challenges relating to adaptation.

Webinar: Supporting providers dealing with loss

Webinar: Supporting providers dealing with loss

Description:

Grief is a natural response to losing someone or something important. Development, culture, family, and other factors strongly influence how people experience, mourn, cope with, and heal from loss.

This webinar will review unique aspects of loss, grief, compassion fatigue, and burnout of behavioral health and health care providers prior to and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Personal and professional challenges of ambiguous loss and disenfranchised grief – including provider feelings of guilt, lack of reward, loss of control and uncertainty about the future - will be illustrated through case examples. Case examples will also be used to explain how to employ effective supportive interventions to providers and enhance self-care and resiliency.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the unique aspects of loss, grief, compassion fatigue, and burnout experienced by providers prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Examine personal and professional challenges of cumulative grief, anticipatory grief, ambiguous loss and disenfranchised grief present in provider loss.
  • Employ specific effective interventions to support providers dealing with loss, grief and burnout and enhance self-care.

Webinar: Leveraging social environment in the prevention of opioid use disorder

Webinar: Leveraging social environment in the prevention of opioid use disorder

Prevention scientists have long acknowledged that individuals’ substance misuse and disorder are shaped by multiple levels of their social environment—from family and friend relationships to public policy and culture. Despite this, approaches to address opioid misuse often focus on changing the individual through treatment and relying on someone to seek out support, rather than having professionals and organizations reach out with interventions. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these issues and introduced new challenges related to social connections.

To navigate the impact of a syndemic (COVID-19 + opioid overdose epidemic), public health researchers and policy makers must codify the role and importance of prevention. This webinar focuses on strategies to prevent opioid misuse and opioid use disorder (OUD) that involve bi-directional interactions between people who use drugs and different levels of their social environment to forge better outcomes for individuals, families, and communities.

Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize key links between opioid misuse and social connections based on a systematic review of literature
  • See how several National Institutes of Health (NIH) Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) Prevention research projects are attempting to leverage the social environment and systems in their intervention efforts
  • Recognize how COVID-19 poses unique challenges to prevention strategies and consider related adaptations

Webinar: Interrupt unhelpful habits through mindfulness practices that work

Webinar: Interrupt unhelpful habits through mindfulness practices that work

Educator stress and burnout has been reported as higher than any other profession (Stoeber, J., & Rennert, D, 2008). Stressors include lack of social/emotional training, ineffective interpersonal relationships, vicarious trauma, and unrealistic systems’ requirements. Stressors impact wellbeing and availability to effectively build high quality relationships with students. Educators inherently deserve support in nurturing their holistic wellbeing.

During these workshops participants will practice skills to decrease stressors on mind/body systems to stay connected to the wonders and curiosities of teaching using evidence-based mindfulness practices, radical acceptance and values-driven goal setting.

  • Learn the benefits of mindfulness practices for educators.
  • Understand how unhelpful habits are formed and how mindful practices can help interrupt a habit loop.
  • Create a Committed Action Plan.
  • Learn and experience several mindfulness/meditation exercises.

Webinar: Navigating the opioid crisis amidst a pandemic

Webinar: Navigating the opioid crisis amidst a pandemic

Drug overdose deaths are at epidemic levels in the United States. As communities work to combat this complex issue, coalitions are often expected to lead the way. This issue can take coalitions into areas beyond prevention, to address harm reduction, overdose prevention, naloxone distribution and more. During this first session of a two-part series, we will take a deep look at the Opioid Continuum of Care (e.g., prevention, intervention, treatment, aftercare) and discuss the unique characteristics of each stage – and discuss how the Covid-19 pandemic impacts the crisis. Participants will examine the role of their coalitions in the opioid crisis and ways they can engage community partners and members during the pandemic. The second session, to be conducted at a later date will take a more detailed look at specific strategies coalitions can use to address the opioid crisis.

Webinar: Let's talk about resilience: Supporting the mental health of youth and young adults in foster care

Webinar: Let's talk about resilience: Supporting the mental health of youth and young adults in foster care

Young people with foster care experience are incredibly resilient. Despite facing enormous challenges including trauma, loss, and disruptions to schooling and social and family connections, they can and do heal, thrive, and contribute to their communities every day. Relationships with supportive adults and the right services at the right time both contribute to better outcomes - particularly when the adults supporting young people in foster care recognize their potential and when services meet their needs and strengthen protective factors.

Please join the New England Mental Health Technology Transfer Center for an interactive conversation about the resilience of youth and young adults in foster care, and how providers, practitioners, caregivers, and other adults can help them to navigate challenges and thrive.

Webinar: Pandemia: Restoring the wounded soul

Webinar: Pandemia: Restoring the wounded soul

Rituals are actions done in purposeful ways that symbolize something much more than the acts themselves. Every culture has rituals that provide purpose and meaning to experiences. Rituals are made up of actions that represent ideas, thoughts, myths, or beliefs about something specific. They give purpose to action and always serve to connect us to something else, generally something greater than ourselves. In difficult times, rituals provide a certain order to an existence that otherwise might be full of confusion and chaos. Given the current pandemic, loss and grief have taken a front seat. A sense of loss permeates in many of our lives, and for many clients this may be difficult to name. Furthermore, the inability to perform rituals in our habitual ways can be distressful for many. The current webinar will discuss the experience of loss and grief for Latinos during the current pandemic: including physical and symbolic losses. The presenters will discuss Latinos values and rituals as they relate to the current pandemic. The importance of te therapeutic relationship will be discussed as well as approaches and strategies that promote new rituals, new meanings, and a transformative experience.
