Society for Prevention Research annual meeting

Society for Prevention Research annual meeting

Mark your calendars to attend the most important prevention science conference–the Society for Prevention Research (SPR) 29th Annual Meeting. This year’s theme is “Addressing Racism and Disparities when Considering Biology and Context.”

The Society for Prevention Research envisions a wellness-oriented society in which evidenced-based programs and policies are continuously applied to improve the health and well-being of its citizens, fostering positive human development and citizens who lead productive lives, in caring relationships with others.

The SPR Annual Meeting provides a unique opportunity to advance this vision by providing a centrally integrated forum for the exchange of new concepts, methods, and results from prevention research and related public health fields; and by providing a forum for the communication between scientists, public policy leaders and practitioners concerning the implementation of evidence-based preventive interventions in all areas of public health.

Webinar: Advancing equity, diversity and inclusion for a more perfect union (part 1 of 3)

Webinar: Advancing equity, diversity and inclusion for a more perfect union (part 1 of 3)

Given the continued emergence of an interconnected society, a global pandemic, and recent protests and unrest calling for racial justice across the country, building organizational capacity for advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion is more critical than ever. The need for leaders within social sector organizations to understand and engage the current environment is essential in building an equitable society for all. This journey begins by ensuring all people feel valued at work. It mandates the co-creation of an inclusive workforce that can foster the development of a healthy, productive, and peaceful society in which all people can participate and reach their full potential. 

During this virtual workshop presented by the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities, participants will explore their relationship with equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in a safe environment and make progress on developing an EDI action plan for their organizations.  

Because advancing EDI requires more than just basic knowledge and the will to improve, presenters will help participants understand their own biases as well as the role of historical discrimination, non-inclusive behavioral actions, and culture in creating an unjust society. 

The workshop will include presentations of valuable information, facilitated discussions, reflection opportunities, and dedicated planning time. In addition to learning about core concepts, participants will put ideas into action with a hands-on, facilitated planning. Participants will have an opportunity to begin developing action plans for advancing the organization’s EDI journey. As such, organizations are encouraged to send multiple employees that together can develop or work on current EDI plans for advancement.  

Workshop Goals: Participants will have an opportunity to:

a.      Increase understanding of how EDI has changed over time within the United States as a result of legislation and currently available EDI data

b.      Assess their individual cultural effectiveness and develop goals for growth

c.       Examine how biases, racism, and incivility show up and create barriers to building an EDI-enriched workplace culture 

d.      Understand their organization’s phase of EDI maturity, and how to move to the next phase

e.      Explore a multi-faceted approach and ways to co-create an organizational culture that fosters EDI

f.        Consider options for addressing critical current issues.

g.      Learn a process and develop a skeleton plan for organizational advancement in EDI using results-based strategies

 

Recommended Attendees  

  • Staff responsible for diversity, equity, and inclusion 
  • Human resources professionals 
  • Organizational development professionals
  • Executives 
  • Board members 
  • Executive search firms 

Course Schedule: There are three opportunities to participate in this three-day virtual workshop. Programming is offered each day from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. CT with two short breaks.

Webinar: “Ice," cannabis use disorder, and the opioid crisis: Continued endemic of addiction amid the COVID-19 pandemic

Webinar: “Ice," cannabis use disorder, and the opioid crisis: Continued endemic of addiction amid the COVID-19 pandemic

Though most of our nation’s health has focused on the COVID-19 pandemic and our opioid crisis during the 2020s, abuse and overdose deaths have also increased with methamphetamine (now predominantly in the form of d-methamphetamine base known as “ice”), cocaine, benzodiazepines, and alcohol. Abuse of diverted prescription (oxy and hydrocodone) and illicit opioids (fentanyl and heroin) has recently exploded during the current opioid crisis.

The “Ice Age” of d-isomer meth and cocaine pasta has reemerged. Benzos in combination with opioids has erupted. Alcohol poisoning deaths and problem drinking has increased and a plethora of new psychoactive substances have taken hold in the drug abusing subculture ranging from kratom, synthetic stimulants (“bath salts”), increasingly potent and synthetic cannabinoids (“incense”), psychedelics (salvia), and psychostimulants (“Flakka”, "Benzo Fury”).

Further contributing to the surge in our endemic addiction problems, marijuana has now been legalized in either medical or recreational forms in all but two US states. As a result, cannabis use disorder (CUD) and marijuana-related health, social, and even criminal problems have increased. This presentation will review these current drug abuse trends, their pharmacology, and treatment developments inclusive of developing medication assisted treatment interventions.

Webinar: Overview of the getting ready for sustainability planning (part 4 of 7)

Webinar: Overview of the getting ready for sustainability planning (part 4 of 7)

This 7-week series offers an interactive experience for participants to explore how to develop a sustainability plan. Sustainability planning is an intentional process of looking critically at your current prevention infrastructure, processes, and strategies to develop the necessary resources to sustain meaningful prevention outcomes beyond current funding. Elements of sustainability planning include examining the impact of strategic planning processes, such as SAMSHA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) and interventions, priority setting, resource and feasibility analysis, communication planning, and resource and grant development.

Trainers will demonstrate how to use a set of tools to facilitate a sustainability process with community partners and will coach participants to set actionable steps and timelines to complete a plan over the next year.  The distance learning series will include skill-based learning opportunities, individual and group activities, reading assignments, and group discussion.

Policies for a post-pandemic hangover: Addressing alcohol use in the time of COVID-19 and beyond

Policies for a post-pandemic hangover: Addressing alcohol use in the time of COVID-19 and beyond

Policies for a Post-Pandemic Hangover:
Addressing Alcohol Use in the Time of COVID-19 and Beyond

Researchers have documented a sharp increase in harmful alcohol use during the COVID-19 pandemic, which threatens to compromise public health long after the last lockdowns and stay-at-home orders are lifted. In addition to social isolation and economic stress, public policies—including relaxed restrictions on home delivery and health claims for alcohol, and deep tax cuts for the alcohol industry—have helped to drive higher alcohol consumption. Why are consumers drinking more, and why does it matter? What public policies are available to nudge consumers towards healthier, and better informed choices? Why aren’t ingredients, calories, and other nutrition facts included on alcoholic beverage labels? A panel of experts will discuss these and other questions.

Webinar: LGBTQI+ communities in the COVID-19 pandemic

Webinar: LGBTQI+ communities in the COVID-19 pandemic

The National Academies report Understanding the Well-Being of LGBTQI+ Populations (2020) underscored how health disparities in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and other sexual and gender diverse (LGBTQI+) communities are exacerbated by social forces such as poverty and lack of adequate health insurance coverage or access to care. These issues make responses to COVID-19, including vaccinations, a critical public health priority for sexual and gender diverse populations. At the same time, LGBTQI+ communities have a long history of organizing to support one another to combat health crises like the HIV/AIDS epidemic, which highlights the resilience of these communities and the power of organizing in the face of public health crises.

This webinar will share insight on what is known about COVID-19 experiences in LGBTQI+ populations, and will discuss the importance of community formation and mobilization for LGBTQI+ populations as outlined in the 2020 report. It will highlight findings from surveys by the Tegan and Sara Foundation and the Kaiser Family Foundation on COVID-19 experiences and vaccination attitudes among LGBTQI+ people.

Webinar: Advancing the well-being of LGBTQI+ populations

Webinar: Advancing the well-being of LGBTQI+ populations

Individuals who identify as sexual and gender diverse—that is, those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, or non-binary (LGBTQI+), or who have same-sex and same-gender attractions or behaviors—have different experiences across their life course than their cisgender and heterosexual counterparts. The increase in prevalence and visibility of sexual and gender diverse populations illuminates the need for greater understanding of the ways in which current laws, systems, and programs affect their well-being.

This webinar will discuss the research-based policy implications outlined in the report, Understanding the Well-Being of LGBTQI+ Populations (2020), current LGBTQI+ policy considerations at the federal level, such as the Equality Act and section 1557, and recent changes to and topics of interest in state and local level policies.

Webinar: Substance misuse prevention with Hispanic and Latino communities in the southeast: What cultural dynamics are at play?

Webinar: Substance misuse prevention with Hispanic and Latino communities in the southeast: What cultural dynamics are at play?

The Southeast PTTC in collaboration with the National Hispanic & Latino PTTC offers this training for prevention practitioners in HHS Region 4: AL, FL, GA, KY, MI, NC, SC and TN.  This training, offered in response to a need identified by Region 4 stakeholders, will focus on the relationship between our personal and professional cultural backgrounds and those of people whose historical roots are embedded in the expansion of Spain, once a powerful global empire. Do people in this diaspora have particular views, beliefs, and biases about substance misuse?  Are they different than ours? Dr. Jana Spalding will explore and encourage deeply reflective questions such as--from what cultural framework has the field of prevention developed? What assumptions, unspoken beliefs, and biases exist in the field of prevention? How can we ever know how to work with people whose ways of being in the world are different from ours? How can we ever understand, much less find common ground with, people from another culture in order to prevent substance misuse and promote health?

Learning Objectives:

  1. Challenge prevention professionals to reflect on their own personal and professional cultural assumptions and biases
  2. Consider the cultural context from which the field of prevention in the US has emerged and its relevancy to people and groups from other cultural backgrounds
  3. Motivate prevention professionals to pursue ways to increase their own cultural humility: understanding their own cultural makeup first, so as to respectfully relate to people of different cultures different 
  4. Understand that the challenge is not just to teach our concepts and practices of prevention, but to assist – even as we work on it ourselves -- to acquire skills to adapt to the changing cultural contexts in which we all find ourselves

In addition to learning about core concepts, participants will put ideas into action with a hands-on, facilitated planning. Participants will have an opportunity to begin developing action plans for advancing the organization’s EDI journey. As such, organizations are encouraged to send multiple employees that together can develop or work on current EDI plans for advancement.  

Workshop Goals: Participants will have an opportunity to:

a.      Increase understanding of how EDI has changed over time within the United States as a result of legislation and currently available EDI data

b.      Assess their individual cultural effectiveness and develop goals for growth

c.       Examine how biases, racism, and incivility show up and create barriers to building an EDI-enriched workplace culture 

d.      Understand their organization’s phase of EDI maturity, and how to move to the next phase

e.      Explore a multi-faceted approach and ways to co-create an organizational culture that fosters EDI

f.        Consider options for addressing critical current issues.

g.      Learn a process and develop a skeleton plan for organizational advancement in EDI using results-based strategies

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.

Second Tuesdays of the month: May 11th, June 8th, and July 13th

Webinar: Building bridges/dismantling racism for the common good

Webinar: Building bridges/dismantling racism for the common good

This conference will examine the characteristics of systemic racism and its impact on everyday life by exploring the interrelated themes of diversity, alienation (anomie), whiteness and community. Presentations developed around these themes will establish critical frameworks for understanding how race and racial ideologies persist in shaping social and cultural institutions, which mediate interconnectedness and/or social isolation between individuals and social groups, and how these factors foster or hinder community-building.

Break-out sessions will be facilitated each day by the staff of the Institute for the Healing of Memories - North America (IHOM-NA) to help participants process their feelings, experiences and general understanding of the topics presented. 

The conference design is based on the organizers’ conviction that addressing racism necessitates a rigorous interdisciplinary approach and also needs to bridge the gap between academic research and teaching and social activism beyond the university. 

  • Keynote by Fr. Michael Lapsley
  • Other Speakers: Dr. Nyla Khan, Suzette Chang, Dr. Mark Schmitt, Dr. Noel Jacobs, Rev. T. Sheri Dickerson, Jonathan Andrew Pérez, ESQ, and Serena Prammanasudh.

Webinar: Live at the virtual barbershop: Building family resilience by supporting Black fathers

Webinar: Live at the virtual barbershop: Building family resilience by supporting Black fathers

Join us at the virtual barbershop as we talk about life ... REAL life. Being Black in America means many things, but one of the most prevalent issues is experiencing racism daily on multiple fronts. From standard microaggressions on up through direct confrontations, the men who'll be waiting on their haircuts at our barbershop have experienced it all.  

Discussion Topic

Black fathers are often not considered to be productive and engaged in their families and communities by the social sector. In fact, the dominant white society commonly frames Black men through the lens of father absence rather than as an essential presence in most families. 

Research shows that Black fathers who actively participate in their families' lives provide a stable and steady source of physical, social, and emotional support. However, the marginalization and dismissive attitudes and actions toward Black fathers can impede the positive contributions of these men in their children's lives. Leaders from the social sector must therefore adopt and champion an equitable lens and a strengths-based perspective of Black fathers in their programs, policies, and advocacy.

Join African-American men who are leaders in the social sector as they explore the phenomenon of the “missing Black father” and identify the positive ways that men contribute to the resilience of Black families.

About the Virtual Barbershop

The barbershop is one of a few safe places where black men feel very comfortable in having candid conversations on just about anything. All over America, the barbershop continues to serve as a second home and place of refuge, healing, and compassion for black men.

This virtual space will feature several black male executives from around the country, sharing their perspectives and recommendations on how to increase the number of African American males in leadership positions at human services organizations. Just like in any barbershop, anyone is welcome to drop in at any time based on their availability and interest.

Webinar: Overview of the getting ready for sustainability planning (part 5 of 7)

Webinar: Overview of the getting ready for sustainability planning (part 5 of 7)

This 7-week series offers an interactive experience for participants to explore how to develop a sustainability plan. Sustainability planning is an intentional process of looking critically at your current prevention infrastructure, processes, and strategies to develop the necessary resources to sustain meaningful prevention outcomes beyond current funding. Elements of sustainability planning include examining the impact of strategic planning processes, such as SAMSHA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) and interventions, priority setting, resource and feasibility analysis, communication planning, and resource and grant development.

Trainers will demonstrate how to use a set of tools to facilitate a sustainability process with community partners and will coach participants to set actionable steps and timelines to complete a plan over the next year.  The distance learning series will include skill-based learning opportunities, individual and group activities, reading assignments, and group discussion.

Webinar: How to create LGBTQ+ safe spaces

Webinar: How to create LGBTQ+ safe spaces

The Safe Zone Workshop is designed to help people at all levels of an organization create a more inclusive space with a particular emphasis on the LGBTQ+ community. Based in the work of the Safe Zone Project, this training will help participants explore their first impressions, expand their LGBTQ+ vocabulary, dive into concepts around sexuality and gender, examine privilege, and practice applying their new knowledge/skills to real-world situations.

While focused on the LGBTQ+ community, this workshop helps to develop and strengthen broader skills that are pivotal to creating inclusive environments.

Presenters will be Kevin Shah (he/him) and Ryan Driscoll (he/him). Shah is an experienced product and business leader who has spent more 13 years in technological solutions. Ryan is the developer of an app that boosts a person’s empathy. He has led several LGBTQ+ safe space trainings for companies and was honored with Puget Sound Business Journal’s 2020 Outstanding Voices recognition.

Ryan has spent over 10 years working in formal and informal science education with a focus on environmental justice and helping people connect to the natural world. This has included an emphasis on empathy and how it can be a tool to connect people to nature and each other. Ryan has a passion for helping others develop their own skills and talents while working to dismantle inequitable systems. His most recent work has focused around co-creating community conservation programs and an equitable conservation movement.

Webinar: Protect your brain: Addressing adolescent African American males and substance use

Webinar: Protect your brain: Addressing adolescent African American males and substance use

This workshop will explore the use of various substances within the United States by American youth, and, more specifically, among African American youth and African American males as compared to the larger population of young people in the US. We will review the research data associated with use among each of these groups, including prevalence, age of onset, and short- and long-term effects. We will closely examine patterns of use over the last 10 years in adolescent African American males. Further, we will also examine the developing adolescent brain, the effects of substance use on brain development, and how the adolescent brain is negatively impacted by substance use. More specifically, we will discuss the mental and neurological long- and short-term effects of substance use on the adolescent brain. Outlining the effects on the adolescent brain, we will discuss the implications for mental health practitioners in working with youth. We will share interventions that can assist with remediating use and its effects. The webinar will conclude with an opportunity for participants to ask questions, share experiences, and discuss concerns.

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will be able to identify the major sociological and psychological factors associated with increased risk of addiction.
  • Participants will be able to describe at least three therapeutic interventions to reduce substance use among African American adolescent males.
  • Participants will be able to characterize the social image of the adolescent African American male who has a substance use disorder.

Webinar: CLAS matters! Helping people achieve their full health potential

Webinar: CLAS matters! Helping people achieve their full health potential

The National Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards were developed by the Office of Minority Health in response to health and health care disparities and changing demographics.  The CLAS standards are a structured outline of actionable items that organizations and professionals may consider undertaking to improve the quality of services, some of which can include culturally responsive services, client and provider cultural perspectives, language based challenges, all which ultimately help reduce health disparities and attain health equity.

This interactive three-part webinar (two hours each) will provide an overview of the CLAS Standards and how providers might implement culturally and linguistically appropriate strategies to heighten engagement opportunities, improve quality of care, and effect recovery support to diverse communities.

This training meets the requirements for six renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and six initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). 

Participants must attend all three sessions in their entirety to receive a certificate of completion.

2021 Washington Behavioral Healthcare Conference: Stronger together- a path forward

Welcome to the 31st annual Washington Behavioral Healthcare Conference (WBHC), Stronger Together – A Path Forward. We missed gathering in 2020 as a statewide behavioral health community, and can’t wait to reconvene in June. 2021 will mark the first-ever virtual WBHC; although we arrived here out of pandemic-induced necessity, we’re excited by the new opportunities a virtual event makes possible. We’ve added a fourth featured national speaker, and by reducing fees by 50% and restructuring the daily schedule, we hope to welcome even more participants from across the state. We’re all living in and through incredibly challenging times. Our theme, Stronger Together – A Path Forward, will be supported through critical content on race and equity in behavioral health, COVID-related innovations, connections between corrections and behavioral health, and best practices in team-based care. National and regional experts, consumer leaders, and local providers will share their experience, knowledge, and tools, bringing you timely new resources to use in your agencies and communities. We’re delighted to introduce the 2021 WBHC keynote speakers:
• Victor Armstrong, MSW, an expert on building & strengthening community resources to serve individuals living with behavioral health issues and on behavioral health and the African American community
• Debra Pinals, MD, an expert in bringing recovery principles into correctional settings
• Nic Sheff, speaker & author who shares his authentic & heart-touching story of substance abuse, mental illness, & recovery
• Allison Massari, a trauma survivor & leading healthcare educator on compassion fatigue and patient-centered care.
 This virtual event will highlight 35 workshops, with tracks focusing on corrections & mental health, recovery & resiliency, emerging, best & promising practices, management, leadership & operations, race and equity in behavioral health, and more. We gratefully acknowledge support for the WBHC from the Health Care Authority and the Department of Corrections. We hope you’ll join us in June for an outstanding educational event!

Webinar: Wedding of the century: The prevention, treatment and recovery throuple

Opioids have created an unprecedented health crisis. While coalition leaders work tirelessly with sector representatives, bridging social divides in our nation's communities, it's important for leaders in prevention to create unprecedented responses and strategies to combat the opioid epidemic by regularly reaching out to and collaborating with local, state, and federal treatment and recovery partners. It is imperative that we nurture and build these relationships within our coalition by understanding the plethora of ways we help each other fulfill our drug free mission. You're in for a treat as this rousing wedding themed presentation will feature fun-filled engaging material from a national Opioid Response Network Prevention Specialist.

Webinar: Overview of the getting ready for sustainability planning (part 6 of 7)

This 7-week series offers an interactive experience for participants to explore how to develop a sustainability plan. Sustainability planning is an intentional process of looking critically at your current prevention infrastructure, processes, and strategies to develop the necessary resources to sustain meaningful prevention outcomes beyond current funding. Elements of sustainability planning include examining the impact of strategic planning processes, such as SAMSHA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) and interventions, priority setting, resource and feasibility analysis, communication planning, and resource and grant development.

Trainers will demonstrate how to use a set of tools to facilitate a sustainability process with community partners and will coach participants to set actionable steps and timelines to complete a plan over the next year.  The distance learning series will include skill-based learning opportunities, individual and group activities, reading assignments, and group discussion.

Webinar: What were you thinking? A neuroscientist's explanation of teenage decision making

Webinar: What were you thinking? A neuroscientist's explanation of teenage decision making

Teenagers often make questionable choices – ones that routinely prompt parents to ask this question without any expectation of a satisfying answer. The stereotypes from film and television make this stage of life feel especially scary. But neuroscientist Adriana Galván says that these decisions and that this period of adolescence are critical in the cycle of brain development. Recent advances in our understanding of the brain have further informed our grasp on adolescence. Expanding our recognition for the ways in which normal cognitive and social behaviors change from childhood to adulthood will not only soothe stressed parents, but it will also help us create informed youth-related policies in a host of sectors, ranging from the juvenile justice to education. Be sure to join us for this compelling conversation between Adriana and film and television director, Jon Amiel.

Webinar: Spotlight on Juneteenth and BIPOC voices

In the spirit of Juneteenth, join Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Puget Sound for a conversation with documentary filmmaker and visual anthropologist Dr. Michelle Flowers-Taylor for a discussion about a newly formed media collective: The Thread.  Founded by Dr. Flowers-Taylor, The Thread is a collective for emerging BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) documentary filmmakers and directors looking for resources to amplify the voices of the vast experiences of people of color. One of those stories is the story of the creation of Juneteenth. Grab your popcorn and get ready for some riveting insight. 

Michelle Flowers-Taylor, Ed.D. is the Founder and CEO of The Thread, and its non-profit subsidiary The Thread Documentaries. In addition, Dr. Flowers-Taylor is the co-founder of Legacy First Partners, a boutique advisory company which is a media, services, and technology investment firm developed to help companies, organizations, and high-impact individual leaders launch and scale game-changing projects that accelerate the building of multi-generational wealth while simultaneously creating positive change.

In the past, Dr. Flowers-Taylor served as the founding director of the Institute of Engineering Community and Cultural Competence (IEC3) at the University of Southern California (USC). Before obtaining her doctorate, she served as an applied anthropologist for a Southern California-based military contractor, where she led the content development team that developed an interactive, video game-based simulation pre-deployment training platform. The same platform is still being used by the U.S. Joint Forces Command to train service members in over 30 countries.

Dr. Flowers-Taylor is a member of Kappa Delta Pi, the international honors society in education, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., the first African American Greek-letter sorority.

Webinar: Enhancing tobacco cessation and prevention using a trauma-informed approach

Webinar: Enhancing tobacco cessation and prevention using a trauma-informed approach

Early youth initiation and adult tobacco use are significantly associated with adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), and in fact, exposure to trauma in childhood and early adulthood can double an individual’s risk of lifetime smoking. In Enhancing Tobacco Cessation Using a Trauma-informed Approach, National Council of Behavioral Health subject matter expert Taslim van Hattum, LCSW, MPH, will provide evidence-based guidance you can use to enhance your tobacco prevention and cessation approaches and create successful trauma-informed public policies.  

 

This new virtual workshop will equip you with:

  • An understanding of trauma-informed tobacco cessation and promotion services.
  • Evidence-based practices and resources to support your statewide tobacco programs.
  • Trauma-informed principles to guide cessation and health promotion policies.

Trauma-Informed: Moving to Resilience Conference

Trauma-Informed: Moving to Resilience Conference

CRI was founded with the goal of creating a community that speaks a common language around ACEs, brain development, and resilience. A common language will help us understand the negative impact of trauma or adversity and buffer against it by strengthening our resilience toolbox. That same goal of common language continues to hold our attention as we strive to learn how our bodies respond to stressors, and to consciously incorporate and practice the language and acts of resilience in our daily lives.

CRI’s 6th Annual Trauma-Informed: Moving to Resilience conference will look different this year! CRI recognizes the extreme “zoom fatigue” the pandemic has created. We too are “zoomed out” and just want to be back to “normal” where we can build on relationships and connections together, sharing the same space! The option of skipping a year crossed our minds, but our collective work is too important to let a pandemic and fatigue deter us. So, in an effort to circumvent yet another numbing virtual meeting, we have decided to be brave and fearless and offer two half-days of “Speed Conferencing” 2021! Based on the concept of Speed Dating, we will endeavor to bring you state-of-the-art information, but in the condensed, powerful format of twenty-minute sessions that are easy to digest and remember. We will feature 5 adverse categories—childhood, community, culture, circuitry and catastrophic—and 5 resilience themes to parallel the 5 adverse categories.

While attention to the original ACE Study generated a substantial social movement, it is time to expand our focus on the neuroscience framework underlying the study. By expanding the context of how trauma may occur, we will be able to better address the foundational biological processes that initiate adverse outcomes in the multiple domains in which we live our lives. At the heart of all adversities is the neurological threat response. It is the important link to understanding the trauma caused by events and circumstances. Comprehending the threat response allows us to recognize the variations in the human experience that can lead to trauma.

Join us as we share the science of trauma in multiple domains along with compelling resilience strategies that buffer the effects of those traumas across the life span. Because adversity overlaps and accumulates, we also hope to identify further strategies toward resilience and social-cultural change via Q&A and discussion

Webinar: CLAS matters! Helping people achieve their full health potential

Webinar: CLAS matters! Helping people achieve their full health potential

The National Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards were developed by the Office of Minority Health in response to health and health care disparities and changing demographics.  The CLAS standards are a structured outline of actionable items that organizations and professionals may consider undertaking to improve the quality of services, some of which can include culturally responsive services, client and provider cultural perspectives, language based challenges, all which ultimately help reduce health disparities and attain health equity.

This interactive three-part webinar (two hours each) will provide an overview of the CLAS Standards and how providers might implement culturally and linguistically appropriate strategies to heighten engagement opportunities, improve quality of care, and effect recovery support to diverse communities.

This training meets the requirements for six renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and six initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). 

Participants must attend all three sessions in their entirety to receive a certificate of completion.

Webinar: The mental health impacts of surviving COVID-19: Implications for school mental health systems leaders and providers

Webinar: The mental health impacts of surviving COVID-19: Implications for school mental health systems leaders and providers

Join us for a special conversation with four survivors of COVID-19, all of whom identify as long-haulers, people who “have not fully recovered from COVID-19 weeks or even months after first experiencing symptoms,” according to Harvard Health. Like Derek, Karla, Mieka, and Jessica, “some long haulers experience continuous symptoms for weeks or months, while others feel better for weeks, then relapse with old or new symptoms. The constellation of symptoms long haulers experience, sometimes called post-COVID-19 syndrome” (Harvard Health: If you've been exposed to the coronavirus). This conversation is crucial, especially as schools begin or resume to gather for learning in-person. As our speakers will share, trauma may be now surfacing because people aren’t needing to focus on surviving; this trauma is surfacing as schools are reopening and as survivors are now beginning to process their experience and new realities.

Webinar: Youth inhalant use: Facts about a potentially re-emerging trend

Inhalant abuse hasn’t really been on the mainstream radar for prevention for a while, as rates for US youth have been relatively low and relatively stable. New 2020 data from Monitoring The Future shows a potential uptick in the use of inhalants among 8th graders. Are you prepared to help your coalition learn the basics so that they can be on the lookout for this in your community? Join Dalene Beaulieu, Sr. CTC specialist, as she talks about inhalant abuse facts and prevention tips, along with a look at the new data.

By the end of the webinar, participants will:

Webinar: Sustaining the momentum - Reflecting on diversity, equity, inclusion and engagement efforts since June 2020

Webinar: Sustaining the momentum - Reflecting on diversity, equity, inclusion and engagement efforts since June 2020

It has been just over a year since the extrajudicial killing of George Floyd and the ensuing wave of resistance against systemic racism. Since then, our health care system has also experienced a major reckoning of historical and contemporary racial inequities faced by people who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Color. Over the past year, many health care organizations have worked to improve diversity, equity, inclusion and engagement (DEIE) efforts internally to support the wellbeing of staff and to address health equity and health disparities among clients.

What have been your experiences during this time as affected communities build resilience to long-sustained inequities and social injustice? Join us in an open discussion, “Sustaining the Momentum: Reflecting on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Engagement Efforts," to hear from renowned health equity and racial justice experts. Participants are strongly encouraged to share their own DEIE-related successes and barriers they have faced over the past year as well as their plans for the future.

This session will feature expert panelists, including:

  • Amelia Roeschlein, DSW, MA, LMFT, Consultant, Trauma Informed Services, National Council for Mental Wellbeing
  • Aaron Williams, MA, Integrated Care Consultant, National Council for Mental Wellbeing
  • Terence Fitzgerald, PhD, EdM, MSW, Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Children Youth and Families, USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work
  • Pierluigi Mancini, PhD, president, Multicultural Development Institute, Inc.

Webinar: Opioid tribal laws and policies discussion group

Webinar: Opioid tribal laws and policies discussion group

The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) will be hosting two Opioid Tribal Laws and Policies Discussion Groups. Compared to other racial and ethnic groups, American Indians and Alaska Natives have the highest rate of substance use. There are some protective factors against substance use such as culture, which serves as one of the pathways to healing, health, and wellness. In addition to culture, Tribal policies and laws can assist with opioid use prevention.

The purpose of the discussion groups is to gather feedback on Tribal laws and policies related to monitoring opioid prescribing rates and clinical procedures. Input from the discussion groups will be used to identifying current gaps in Tribal laws and policies and help to inform policy recommendations.

Webinar: Building Resilience for Individuals through Trauma Education (BRITE)

Webinar: Building Resilience for Individuals through Trauma Education (BRITE)

Resilience empowers people to overcome the negative impact of trauma on their physical and mental health. Fortunately, there are practical steps that people can learn to effectively cope with and manage the impact of past stressful events and face future challenges with confidence.

That’s why Dr. Anthony Salerno developed the Building Resilience for Individuals through Trauma Education (BRITE) program. BRITE gives adults adversely impacted by stressful life events and conditions, the knowledge, information and problem-solving strategies they need to build resilience. BRITE is an empowering resource that provides individuals with information and tools that support informed decision making and taking action towards personally meaningful goals and needs.  

During this one-day training, facilitators learn to conduct group and one-on-one BRITE sessions across gender, culture and service settings. The curriculum will help providers teach clients about the effects of trauma, how to adapt resilience-building skills and strategies and the components of a successful plan to improve their health.

Webinar: Overview of the getting ready for sustainability planning (part 7 of 7)

This 7-week series offers an interactive experience for participants to explore how to develop a sustainability plan. Sustainability planning is an intentional process of looking critically at your current prevention infrastructure, processes, and strategies to develop the necessary resources to sustain meaningful prevention outcomes beyond current funding. Elements of sustainability planning include examining the impact of strategic planning processes, such as SAMSHA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) and interventions, priority setting, resource and feasibility analysis, communication planning, and resource and grant development.

Trainers will demonstrate how to use a set of tools to facilitate a sustainability process with community partners and will coach participants to set actionable steps and timelines to complete a plan over the next year.  The distance learning series will include skill-based learning opportunities, individual and group activities, reading assignments, and group discussion.

Webinar: LGBTQ+ mental health: The trauma of coming out

Webinar: LGBTQ+ mental health: The trauma of coming out

June is Pride Month and along with the festivities and celebrations, it is important to bring to light the need for mental health support within the LGBTQ+ community. Statistics have shown that 40% of LGBTQ+ youth have considered suicide in the last year, and 1 in 3 have been physically threatened or harmed in their lifetime because of their identity. 

In honor of Pride Month, Dr. LaNail R. Plummer, CEO of Onyx Therapy Group, will share her research, experiences, and evidence of working with members of the LGBTQ+ community. Dr. Plummer will use “real-life” quotes, client-based scenarios, and evidence-based practices to form tips for audience members, mental health professionals, and members of her shared LGBTQ+ community.

 Join us for this 60-minute webinar where we will discuss: 

  • Trauma through a clinical lens;
  • The “coming out” experience for members of the LGBTQ+ community; and
  • Ways to create new community and secondary families as one chooses to live a life of authenticity.

Webinar: Mindfulness practices for Latinx populations

Webinar: Mindfulness practices for Latinx populations

Mindfulness, which involves “bringing deliberate and non-judgmental awareness and attention to one’s present moment experience,” is a practice with roots in ancient Buddhist traditions, where it is viewed as a necessary component for the cessation of suffering. Mindfulness is increasingly present in integrated approaches to health and wellness in the form of Mindfulness-Based Interventions (MBIs), group-based mindfulness training programs to improve overall well-being. MBIs have been shown to decrease stress and improve health outcomes in underrepresented populations, with research on mindfulness and Latinos showing reductions in smoking, depression, and anxiety, and greater psychological well-being. MBIs may be practiced at home making it efficacious in both improving emotional well-being among Hispanics and engaging otherwise-excluded minorities such as Hispanic immigrants in community-based health promotion. This presentation will include a discussion of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) curriculum, a structured MBI developed in 1979 by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn to decrease stress, substance use and improve overall well-being. The presenter will share a modified version of this curriculum developed for immigrant Latino populations. The presenter will address mindfulness practices that may be incorporated into mental health treatment with Latinas as well as the identified benefits of such practices.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe basic concepts related to mindfulness.
  • Discuss benefits of mindfulness for Latinas.
  • Identify specific, mindfulness practices that can be incorporated as part of mental health treatment for Latinas..

Who should attend? This webinar is designed for mental health providers including psychologists, clinical social workers, mental health counselors, and graduate level students in the mental health field.
