Parent-Child Interaction Feeding Scale Workshop

Parent-Child Interaction Feeding Scale Workshop

DEVELOP OBSERVATION SKILLS IN INFANT AND
EARLY CHILDHOOD MENTAL HEALTH

At the very foundation of infant mental health is the ability to skillfully observe a caregiver and their infant during an interaction. We know that attuned caregiver-child interactions lead to better health and mental health outcomes for children. We also know that interactions can range from attuned to mis-attuned, or somewhere in the middle.

HOW DO SERVICE PROVIDERS DEVELOP THEIR OBSERVATION
SKILLS, THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND THE UNDERLYING INTERACTIONAL QUALITY BETWEEN CAREGIVER AND INFANT?
THROUGH PRACTICE AND GUIDANCE.

Learning the PCI Feeding scale provides the training and practice needed to conduct a reliable and valid observation of a caregiver-infant interaction. This training gives you concrete areas to guide intervention and encourage positive parent-child interactions.

LEARNING THE FEEDING SCALE meets the following competencies for certification in Infant Mental Health:

Competencies:
– Infant/Very Young Child Development & Behavior
– Observational Skills
– Screening and Assessment
– Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood 

“I will never look at parent-child
interaction in the same way again.
This training has taught me to leave my
biases at the door and focus on the positive.
I am forever changed.”
—RN, NYC

There Has Always Been Drinking in America: Alcohol, History, Culture, and What it all Means for Prevention

There Has Always Been Drinking in America: Alcohol, History, Culture, and What it all Means for Prevention

Americans drink to celebrate and to mourn. We toast a new addition to our family, an engagement, a marriage, a new job, and a life well-lived. We open a bottle to break bread with friends, to watch sports, to pray, and to drown our sorrows. But we also suffer from addiction, violence, motor vehicle crashes, and death, all at the hands of alcohol. This webinar explores America’s cultural relationship to alcohol, from the thirteen colonies and prohibition to today’s music and movies. In prevention, we often focus so intently on our communities and strategies that we fail to step back and look at the much, much bigger picture of the cultural and historical context of what we are trying to accomplish. Using humor and examples from history, movies, music, television, and more, Dr. Rodney Wambeam provides the larger context of what it means to prevent the misuse, abuse, and devastating consequences of a substance that has always been part of the American experience.

Audience: Prevention practitioners, allied health partners and community members working to prevent substance misuse in tribes, communities, and states in HHS Region 10 (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington).
Cost: Free
Certificates for 1.5 hours of attendance will be given to participants.
Questions: Contact Karen Totten (ktotten@casat.org) for any questions related to registration. For any other questions, please contact Clarissa Lam Yuen (clamyuen@casat.org).

Professionals who work with caregivers and young children (0-5) often see the need to support and guide caregivers in building nurturing relationships with children. Promoting First Relationships workshop gives professionals the knowledge, tools, and strategies to do so. The Promoting First Relationships evidence-based program integrates theory, practice and intervention.

In this 4 half-day learner’s workshop, participants learn a unique consultation and intervention strategy that they can integrate into their work whether in high-risk, special needs, child-care, or other early childhood fields.

  • Consultation strategies
  • Elements of a healthy relationship
  • Infants and the development of trust and security
  • Toddlers and the development of self
  • Understanding and intervening with children’s challenging behaviors
  • Developing intervention plans and individualizing the PFR curriculum

Promoting First Relationships can improve…

  • Parental sensitivity
  • Parental knowledge of child development
  • Parental confidence and competence
  • Child outcomes
  • Child Welfare outcomes

Because Promoting First Relationships is a positive, strengths-based model, caregivers are typically open to intervention and gain competence, and thus investment, in their caregiving.

What participants are saying . . .

“I loved the video examples which really helped illustrate the principles.”

SFP 10-14 Recertification Training for Facilitators [via Zoom]

SFP 10-14 Recertification Training for Facilitators [via Zoom]

Recertification training is for facilitators who have been trained and certified (3 or more years ago) to facilitate SFP 10-14 with families in their local communities. To maintain current certification, facilitators should recertify to receive the most current program updates, updated research of SFP 10-14, leadership development with implementation teams, and review of current research- and practice-based strategies for successful family engagement in prevention programming. Recertification is valid for three (3) years. Recertification is six hours via Zoom with an additional two hours of asynchronous work for a total of 8 hours of training.

Harm Reduction in Rural Alaska

Harm Reduction in Rural Alaska

Alaska presents a unique challenge for access to harm reduction services; prior to 2016 only 3 urban SAPs serviced the state, which includes over 200 tribal villages spread over 650,000 square miles. Since then, innovative strategies such as a local volunteer run syringe access program (SAP) in Homer, a SAP at a rural tribal medical clinic in Bethel, and a mail order tribal harm reduction program out of Anchorage, have greatly expanded access to services throughout the state. Additionally, rural medical clinics offer a critical access point for patients who use drugs to access medications and services to reduce risks and improve their health. 
 
Learning objectives:

  1. Review the barriers to accessing harm reduction services in rural areas
  2. Explore the strengths and opportunities that rural communities have to offer to in the development of harm reduction services
  3. Discuss the process and importance of community involvement in the creation of new harm reduction programs in rural areas
  4. Understand how medications and rural medical clinics can play a critical role in reducing morbidity and mortality for PWUD 

About the Presenter: Dr. Sarah Spencer is board certified in family and addiction medicine and has been providing treatment for opioid use disorder in rural Alaska for over a decade. She works with Project HOPE to provide opioid overdose response training and naloxone distribution and is a founding member and volunteer medical director of Alaska’s only rural syringe access program in Homer. She is currently an employee of the Ninilchik Traditional Council and provides family medicine and addiction treatment services at their tribal clinic, including telemedicine to remote native villages. She teaches on addiction issues across the state of Alaska, including buprenorphine waiver certification courses. She is a co-author of the state’s medication assisted treatment guide and is the state’s senior physician consultant for the SAHMSA funded Opioid Response Network non-profit consulting program.
