Webinar: Caring for self, caring for others: Mindfulness and compassion practices for times like these

Webinar: Caring for self, caring for others: Mindfulness and compassion practices for times like these

If we’ve learned anything from this year, it’s that compassion and care are central to our public health mission. As we move into a post-pandemic world, mindfulness and compassion practices can support us in daily and ongoing ways. This 45 minute session will offer an opportunity to experience both a mindfulness and a compassion practice, and critical research on how compassion supports resilience, self-awareness, trust and connection.

Webinar: Suicide prevention in Latino and Indigenous populations

Webinar: Suicide prevention in Latino and Indigenous populations

Suicide prevention is an area of our work that is difficult to sustain a long-term commitment to. The emotional work takes a toll, and we must seek self-care regularly. Prevention strategies for Latinx and Indigenous populations are not singular nor is there one approach for all individuals or communities. Understanding the importance of cultural elements and the need to adapt any prevention strategies in order to be most effective is a primary task. Providers, community leaders, and parents must work together to uncover the reasons behind young people and adults reporting feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and despair. Visionaries and leaders must activate hope and compassion for those who seek a new approach to life’s problems. This session will explore strategies to encourage new approaches to prevention and treatment.

Webinar: The rise of alcohol use during COVID-19: An epidemic in plain sight

Webinar: The rise of alcohol use during COVID-19: An epidemic in plain sight

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, excessive drinking affected approximately 50 million Americans and was the 3rd largest preventable cause of death in the United States. Alcohol elevates the risk of almost all chronic health conditions such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and is closely tied to mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety. In the past year, alcohol consumption has increased 14% across the board, with heavy drinking rates for women increasing 41%. Surveys have shown that only 2% of excessive drinkers receive any treatment due to a variety of barriers to care. This webinar will introduce a no-shame, labels optional, evidenced-based approach to treating excessive drinking employed at Tempest, a digital recovery platform.

In honor of Alcohol Awareness Month, join us for this this 60-minute webinar where we will discuss:

• The rise in alcohol sales and use during the COVID-19 pandemic;
• Why drinking is a common coping mechanism;
• How to know if and when your alcohol consumption becomes a problem;
• And how excessive alcohol use changes the brain, and how to reverse those changes.

This webinar will be recorded and available to the public within 1 week. We do not offer CEUs, but certificates of attendance will be available after the event.

Webinar: Killing me softly: Suicide among African American, Asian, Pacific Islander and LGBTQ+ students

Webinar: Killing me softly: Suicide among African American, Asian, Pacific Islander and LGBTQ+ students

 Registration opens March 23, 2021

The purpose of this session is three-fold: 1) to enhance institutional awareness of suicide risk, which is the second leading cause of death among college-aged students; 2) to examine certain racial, ethnic, and cultural dynamics, gender identities, and sexual orientations, and their relationship to suicide risk and protective factors; 3) to offer participants an opportunity to work, in small groups, to develop strategies for reducing on-campus suicide risk factors, while simultaneously increasing protective factors among diverse populations. This session will discuss research that shows that campuses that successfully create LGBTQ+ affirmative environments can reduce suicide risk among these populations.

This session will also examine rising rates of suicide among African Americans entering college, which have historically been under reported due to unique cultural expressions of suicide. Further, the workshop will examine suicidal issues among specific Asian and Pacific Islander ethnicities, including a related case presentation. This session should particularly benefit student life/student affairs personnel concerned about suicide risk and interested in developing policies and procedures aimed at increasing factors that protect against suicide. Similarly, this session will be of interest to all members of university communities who would like to contribute to the creation of safer campus environments.

Webinar: Preventing adolescent depression: Introduction to the blues program in the context of COVID-19

Adolescent depression has been of great concern to prevention practitioners especially given the challenges presented by the pandemic and the stress it has put on young people. This webinar will introduce the research base for adolescent depression prevention interventions. Dr. Paul Rohde will provide an overview of one intervention, the Blues Program, which applies a cognitive-behavioral approach to preventing adolescent depression. The webinar will also highlight how this program can be applied to individual settings.

By the end of the webinar, participants will:
1. Gain an understanding of the research base for adolescent depression prevention interventions.
2. Obtain a solid introduction to a cognitive-behavioral indicated prevention depression group intervention (Blues Program).
3. Consider how they can apply this intervention or components of the program to their specific settings.

Mental Health First Aid - Adult curriculum

Mental Health First Aid - Adult curriculum

You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack.  Learn how to help a friend, family member, coworker or neighbor in need. The National Council for Behavioral Health certifies individuals throughout the nation to provide Mental Health First Aid courses to prepare their communities with the knowledge and skills to help individuals who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.  Identified on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices, the training helps the public better identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses. 

Students must complete a 2-hour self paced course prior to attending this training. 
Students will receive a link to this 2-hour training from the Instructor after successful registration into the course. This email will be sent to the email address provided to us during the time of registration. 
Once students have successfully completed the 2-hour self paced training course, students will receive a second email with a zoom link to allow them access to their virtual classroom on the scheduled class date.

Textbook & Cost:

Textbooks will be available electronically and will be sent within one of the two emails that you will receive from the Instructor.
There is no cost to this course as tuition is generously supported by AHECWW.

 

Certificate Requirements:

Students must complete both pre-work and live session to receive a certificate.

Webinar: Youth mental health first aid training

Webinar: Youth mental health first aid training

Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental health challenges and substance use disorders in young people. This training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to a young person who may be developing a mental health or substance use issue and help connect them to the appropriate care. 

First Aiders will complete a 2-hour self-paced class and then participate in a 5-hour instructor-led class using video conferencing via Zoom. 

Participants will be given access to the 2-hour self-paced class two weeks before the training. This is a prerequisite for the 5-hour Zoom training. The self-paced class will need to be completed at least 48 hours before the training. 

This training is interactive; please have a microphone and webcam.
