Catherine Bradshaw, Ph.D., M.Ed. of the University of Virginia, Tracy Waasdorp, Ph.D., M.Ed of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Michael Sulkowski, Ph.D. of the University of Arizona will describe their research and practice in applying social and emotional learning to the prevention of bullying.

Webinar: The physiological effects of alcohol: What prevention practitioners need to know

Webinar: The physiological effects of alcohol: What prevention practitioners need to know

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, excessive alcohol use led to approximately 88,000 deaths and 2.5 million years of potential life lost each year in the United States from 2006 to 2010, shortening the lives of those who died by an average of 30 years. Understanding the physiological mechanisms and consequences people experience from various substances, including alcohol, is essential knowledge for prevention practitioners. Knowing how these powerful substances work in the body allows prevention practitioners to ensure that their prevention education and communication are fact-based, and that they can speak to the problem and its potential prevention-related solutions accurately. In this webinar, participants will examine the physiological effects of alcohol, highlighting both its acute and long-term effects. Specifically, we will explore the changes alcohol produces in the body and how these changes influence psychomotor and cognitive performance, as well as other associated health risks.

Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention Summit

Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention Summit

The American Indian Health Commision and the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe are honored to invite Native youth (ages 13-24), mental health supervisors, Tribal/UIHP program staff, tribal elders and other concerned community members to the 3rd Annual Intertribal Youth Suicide Prevention Summit: I Choose Life; Embrace Your Sacredness.

NATIVE YOUTH WILL:

  • Hear and meet Native leaders, experts, and other guests from around the Nation to learn how to support one another and understand the impacts we all face together.
  • Create a space to share hope and love through understanding and development of cultural protection and skills building.
  • Participate in open conversations about the impacts of suicide in tribal communities and ways to fight back against it.

Suicide continues to haunt our Native peoples, and it affects our communities more than any other race in the U.S: The rate of suicide among Native Youth is more than double the rate of any other ethnic population.

Among Native peoples, suicide rates peak during adolescence and young adulthood and then decline later in age. This trend is opposite from other racial and ethnic groups. That’s why it is important for our Native youth to come together now and become leaders on this issue for the future.
