SERIES DESCRIPTION

The four part series 360 SAFETY: Keeping Staff Safe by Helping Clients Feel Secure - will empower your organization to create synergy with clients while ensuring physical and environmental safety for staff. Participants learn practical strategies for prioritizing their physical safety, enabling them to focus on the client’s situation. Our system further empowers staff to maintain their personal safety by emphasizing goal centric teamwork that provides emotional security to the client. As a result, clients often transform their energy of aggression into fuel for successful case plan completion. Whether taken as a series or an individual course, the goal is to help participants better partner with clients while ensuring their own personal safety.

 

SERIES LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Participants will understand the importance of teaming with those they serve by emphasizing goal centric teamwork to achieve case plan objectives while also enhancing their own personal safety.
  2. Participants will understand the reality of violence in their work, the risk factors of workplace violence for caseworkers and the need to take measures for personal safety.
  3. Participants will apply vigilance strategies during office and field interactions, on home visits and while navigating the neighborhoods in which our clients reside.
  4. Participants will use verbal de-escalation tactics to diffuse potentially hostile and aggressive clients or strangers.

 

SESSION 2:

Learn how to keep workers protected from potential drug exposure. Also learn how to keep workers and their family’s safe from pests (bedbugs, roaches and mice) and pets (dogs, etc.) that may be encountered at a client’s residence all while keeping the client’s dignity in tact.

 

Registration for this series is being managed by Delaware Health and Social Services-Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health.

Sharing and building power with youth mental health leaders

Sharing and building power with youth mental health leaders

 

Youth leadership is critical to addressing the youth mental health crisis. Whether starting a collective, spearheading a campaign, or joining an advisory board, many young people are leading the way in mental health advocacy across the country. As organizations and institutions build and grow youth leadership programs, they need to be aware of their power and share and build that power with the youth in their networks.

Prevention coalitions are encouraged to build a diverse and inclusive membership that reflects the composition of the communities served. Doing so helps ensure representation of the perspectives necessary to identify and respond to substance misuse-related problems and consequences most effectively, and to prevent or intervene to address existing health inequities and disparities. For some, the challenges are understanding how to work with unfamiliar populations, overcoming anxiety with making a mistake, or building trust with diverse of impacted populations. Other coalitions, located in what appear to be racially or ethnically homogonous communities, wrestle with digging deeper to identify and comprehend the rich diversity present, regardless of what the demographics indicate. Regardless of location, how might coalitions engage community members across cultural identities as partners to address health disparities, center equity in their prevention approaches, and overcome common barriers? What helps communities and coalitions to overcome histories of distance and mistrust? How can progress and success be identified and measured?

Join this collaborative series from the National Hispanic and Latino PTTC and Northeast and Caribbean PTTC for a deep exploration of these issues and an opportunity to receive expert guidance around real-world challenges experienced.

 

By the end of this series of technical assistance services, participants will/be able to:

  • Develop a personal understanding of the positive impact of attention to diversity, equity, and inclusion to their community and prevention efforts
  • Increase awareness of common biases or practices that reinforce inequity and exclusion
  • Identify three personal and coalition practices or policies to apply that increase equity in prevention efforts

Love is in the Air – A Mini Mindfulness Series

 

These meditation sessions invite you to expand and clarify your definition of “love” by examining the concept of “metta”. Sometimes referred to as “loving kindness”, metta has been interpreted in some communities as “Love that is strength and gives strength.” The first session will focus on the meaning of “metta” and describes how metta is different from “sympathy” or “empathy”. The second session focuses on using metta to explore our loving relationships without being hampered by worldly conditions that may hinder our ability to love in a wise and compassionate way. Each session offers an informational talk on metta followed by a short meditation session on metta.

 

Dates:

  • Session 1: Friday, February 10, 2023, at 11:30 a.m. ET
  • Session 2: Monday, February 13, 2023, at 11:30 a.m. ET

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define metta.
  2. Recognize how metta is different from sympathy or empathy. 
  3. Understand how a metta frame of reference can improve all relationships including relationships with others and ourselves.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Research has shown that the words we use to describe substance use disorders (SUD) and recovery have a significant impact on those struggling and how they are treated. While evidence shows that SUDs are medical illnesses, it is still too common for SUDs to be characterized as a moral failing or character flaw. Disparaging words are, unfortunately, still used to describe SUDs and the individuals suffering from them. Research suggests that improving our language when we describe addiction, such as using person-first language when talking about the disease, restores and empowers the humanity of individuals, rather than defining them by their illness.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand that addiction is a medical condition, and the words we use to describe it should be non-stigmatizing.
  2. Understand the importance of person-first language and how to implement it when talking about substance use disorders (SUD).
  3. Understand the role stigma plays in keeping individuals with SUD from seeking help.

How to Facilitate the "Perfect" Presentation: A Workshop on Learning Styles and Group Management

Collaborating TTC: Southeast PTTC
 
Registration Deadline: February 15, 2023

Contact us at krkidd@wakehealth.edu

As prevention professionals, we spend much of our time facilitating trainings for our peers and various community sectors. Facilitators juggle many roles, from keeping the group focused to exploring ways to promote the application of new knowledge. But how do you learn to do this? This workshop will explore what makes the "perfect" facilitator and the impact the facilitator has on the training and participants. Many of you may have found yourself in a situation where you are ready to deliver an outstanding presentation, only to encounter a distraction. Distractions, whether intentional or not, happen. As facilitators, how we respond to distractions is a good indicator of how successful the presentation will be. It's best to be prepared for potential distractions so that we are ready just in case they occur. This workshop will discuss the importance of setting group norms and expectations to create presentations that will benefit all learning styles. There will be a discussion of the different types of participants. Finally, there will be a discussion of strategies for working with all participants and situations that could arise during your presentation.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify instructional design theories, seat placement practices, and speaking styles that can help create the "perfect" presentation.
  • Demonstrate skills needed to engage all audiences to accommodate different learning styles and develop capacity for managing difficult people and situations in a program setting.
  • Recognize the types of different participants, the effects of disruptive audience members on others and the behavior of the perfect participant.

Mitigating safety and risk for children affected by parental substance use disorders involved in the child welfare system

Mitigating safety and risk for children affected by parental substance use disorders involved in the child welfare system


The National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare invites you to a webinar to learn about a collaborative approach to mitigate safety and risk factors for children affected by parental substance use disorders (SUDs).

Parental substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health challenges can create unique child safety and risk concerns. Child welfare professionals are tasked with identifying parental substance use, assessing the effect of substance use on children, and incorporating protective capacities and factors in safety planning. To meet the needs of both parents and their children, a collaborative approach with substance use treatment professionals and other service providers can strengthen safety planning to enhance child and family well-being.

Description
Medications for Opioid Use Disorders (MOUD) are recommended for individuals with an opioid use disorder, including pregnant women. While facilitating pathways to recovery for the person with an opioid use disorder (OUD) is appropriate, it is important to consider and address the severe effects OUD has on family relationships and functioning. Children are especially vulnerable and are at an increased risk of trauma, academic challenges, or child neglect, which can disrupt healthy development.
This interactive webinar will define opioid use disorder (OUD), review adverse effects of opioid use on family dynamics, and review behavioral and developmental concerns for children, including neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). The content will also discuss medications recommended to treat OUD and inform on approaches to support healthy recovery for children and family wellness.

Trainer
Diana Padilla, MCPC, CARC, CASAC-T, is a Research Project Manager at New York State Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University Medical Center. She is a senior staff trainer for the Northeast & Caribbean Addiction Transfer Technology Center Network (NeC-ATTC), and a member of the ASAP-NYCB Trainer Registry.

These disparities adversely affect a sub-population or group. It is the work of prevention professionals and their partners to identify, plan, and implement strategies that reduce the burden of substance use on rural communities.  

This webinar provides practitioners with tools to identify rural-specific risk factors and address substance use-related disparities in rural settings.

SERIES DESCRIPTION

Logic models are a visual planning tool that are a core element of strategic planning. Prevention professionals can use logic models to facilitate the development of a strategic plan, check the plan for issues or errors, explain the plan to others, and provide a baseline for the development of implementation and evaluation plans. This two-part webinar series will explain what logic models are and why they are important, teach skills for developing logic models, and provide participants opportunities to practice those skills.

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This webinar will build from part one of this series. It will first explain in more detail the process of creating a logic model and provide a practice exercise for participants to begin building their own logic models. The webinar will also walk through how to use a completed logic model, including the steps for turning a logic model into an implementation plan and evaluation plan. Lastly, the webinar will discuss other uses of logic models, such as being shared with funders and community partners. The webinar will provide a small group discussion opportunity for participants to share their experiences with logic models, barriers and challenges encountered when developing logic models, and success strategies.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain the process for developing a logic model
  2. Begin planning the development of their own logic models
  3. Understand how to incorporate logic models into implementation and evaluation plans
  4. Describe the other uses of logic models for prevention professionals
