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.

Webinar: National Indian Health Board ACEs discussion: Exploring ACEs

Webinar: National Indian Health Board ACEs discussion: Exploring ACEs

The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) is hosting a series of discussion groups on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Many Tribal individuals, families, and communities have been impacted by ACEs causing physical and mental health adversities throughout the lifespan. ACEs have been linked to risky health behaviors, chronic health conditions, low life potential, mental health and poor behavioral health outcomes, and early death. As the number of ACEs increases, so does the risk for these outcomes.

The purpose of the discussion groups is to gather feedback from behavioral health workers and relevant stakeholders on their experiences and opinions on what types of ACEs tools would be valuable to their work, how best to host and share those tools, barriers and gaps to addressing ACEs in their communities, as well other ACEs needs. Input from the discussion groups will be used to inform materials developed and outreach by NIHB regarding ACEs tools.

It is recommended that you register and attend each session as the conversations will build upon one another and will help to ensure we have a robust and worthwhile discussion. However, you are welcome to join any session.

Webinar: Targeted self-care for uniquely stressful times

Webinar: Targeted self-care for uniquely stressful times

Being an essential worker during the COVID-19 pandemic can feel overwhelming and stressful for a myriad of reasons. Helping professionals report increased and unique work demands, struggling to take care of oneself and others during work hours, loss of social outlets, and loss of the ability to connect with others. Additional stressors may include a fear or dread of oncoming illness and the potential loss of friends and loved ones. More of us are experiencing anxiety, fear, anger, sadness, and helplessness each day. Self-care is essential to maintain your physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual health. The PEMSS model is a holistic approach that focuses on five areas (Physical, Emotional, Mental, Social and Spiritual) and the proper implementation of direct self-care in these areas. Using this model will eradicate the challenge of identifying effective self-care behaviors so that one can maintain personal and professional well-being in the face of uniquely stressful times.

Webinar: Collaborating to address the opioid crisis amidst a pandemic: Partners in prevention

Webinar: Collaborating to address the opioid crisis amidst a pandemic: Partners in prevention

Drug overdose deaths are at epidemic levels in the United States. As communities work to combat this complex issue, coalitions are often expected to lead the way. This issue can take coalitions into areas beyond prevention, overdose prevention, naloxone distribution and more.

During this second session of a two-part series, we will take a deep look at specific strategies coalitions can use to address the opioid crisis along with identifying how the COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to the opioid crisis; recognizing the most vulnerable populations impacted by COVID-19, risk and protective factors and motivations for use; as well as identifying opportunities for collaborations with various community stakeholders.

Webinar: Research into action: Perception of harm from e-cigarettes and support for a tobacco-free campus policy

Webinar: Research into action: Perception of harm from e-cigarettes and support for a tobacco-free campus policy

CADCA along with its Geographic Health Equity Alliance is proud to present this installment of its Research Into Action webinar series on Friday, January 15, 2021 at 1 pm EST featuring Dr. Matthew Rossheim discussing his recent article, “Aerosol, vapor, or chemicals? College student perceptions of harm from electronic cigarettes and support for a tobacco-free campus policy”, which was published in Journal of American College Health in 2020. Dr. Rossheim will discuss his and his colleagues’ article’s findings regarding perception of harm of secondhand exposure to e-cigarette emissions and support for tobacco-free campus policies among college students. The article found that use of “chemicals” or “aerosol” instead of “vapor” to describe secondhand e-cigarette emissions in health communications was associated with increased odds of perceiving secondhand exposure to e-cigarettes as harmful. The article also found that greater perceived harm of secondhand exposure to e-cigarettes was associated with increased odds of support for tobacco-free campus policy. Dr. Rossheim will discuss how coalitions can frame their health communication campaigns to influence public opinion on risk perception and policy options.

Webinar: Substance use screening tools for adolescents

Webinar: Substance use screening tools for adolescents

One of the largest barriers to providing appropriate substance use services to adolescents is getting them to open up about their use and engage in conversation to reduce or eliminate it, if necessary. The Using SBIRT to Talk to Adolescents about Substance Use four-part webinar series introduces health professionals to the SBIRT model as a way to learn from adolescents about their substance use, talk about what might motivate them to make a decision to reduce or abstain (if needed), and execute a plan to do so.

This first webinar in the series discusses the value, rationale for, and evidence of using the Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) model with adolescents as well as the use of valid, brief screening tools for substance use and other risk factors and how to determine the recommended level of intervention based on level of risk. Participants will learn how to introduce screening to adolescents and how to relate screening score results to level of risk and appropriate level of intervention. This webinar will review the CRAFFT+N 2.1, S2BI, the NIDA Modified ASSIST Levels 1 and 2, BSTAD, PHQ-2/9A, and C-SSRS for use with adolescents, providing instructions and scoring for each.

Along with cutting-edge, evidence-based education, the expert presenters will provide sample scripts and role plays so participants gain strategies to use right away with adolescents in many settings. This free education is ideal for anyone who wishes to gain an in-depth understanding of SBIRT and its use with adolescents, designed for both those who are new to SBIRT and for those who want more advanced training beyond an overview.

Webinar: Session 3—Mandated Consultation: Relational strategies for rules & regs

For any level of professional navigating mandated requirements to consult with Tribes. Professionals working with any variety of complex regs —from NEPA, NAGPRA, or ICWA to more intricate issues like civil jurisdiction and treaty rights, you will find valuable tools in this course. This half-day intensive combines live lecture with hands-on exercises.

Excellent training opportunity that I would highly recommend,” wrote a 2020 participant. “I liked the focus of the course—how to work with Tribes rather than why we are required to do it. Very helpful insights into what is important.”

Course Content: This course gives invaluable strategies adaptable to any variety of mandated consultation requirements. Participants will learn the three varieties of mandated consultation, specific conventional approaches for each, and a single strategy addressesing them all. Lectures simplify difficult legal and regulatory issues into clear categories, triggers, and planning solutions. Participants will not spend the day grinding through difficult federal codes or the latest cases. Instead, they will learn and apply simple strategies applicable to any type of consultation issue. Content emphasizes the three proven relational strategies and communication practices that are the hallmarks of successful Government-to-Government (G2G) consultation with Tribes. Participants will identify, learn, and apply these tools, and be ready to transform their own work with mandated consultation. These dramatically improve consultation outcomes, often beyond required standards, while significantly reducing costs and risk. MCLE & CE Eligible. Revised Course Agenda HERE.

Webinar: Using positive community norms during a new normal

Webinar: Using positive community norms during a new normal

How do we apply the Science of the Positive in times of uncertainty? What does positive messaging look like during a global pandemic? Can we apply Positive Community Norms to messaging about COVID19? How can we continue messaging about anything else?  

This team-led series of five virtual workshops will address these questions and show how the Science of the Positive can be a touchstone and a guide for public health practitioners during difficult and confusing times. No previous experience is necessary, but we recommend that newcomers also register for the Introduction to Positive Community Norms. 

For those of us who are continuing to work on other public health issues, how do we carry on against the backdrop of COVID? Does positive, normative data still hold in a crisis? Is it tone-deaf to message about alcohol, vaping, or marijuana use during this epidemic? How can we best address these important prevention issues with youth and families during a pandemic?

Webinar: Brief intervention for adolescents part I: BNI using MI strategies

Webinar: Brief intervention for adolescents part I: BNI using MI strategies

Description: One of the largest barriers to providing appropriate substance use services to adolescents is getting them to open up about their use and engage in conversation to reduce or eliminate it, if necessary. The Using SBIRT to Talk to Adolescents about Substance Use four-part webinar series introduces health professionals to the SBIRT model as a way to learn from adolescents about their substance use, talk about what might motivate them to make a decision to reduce or abstain (if needed), and execute a plan to do so.

This second webinar in the series demonstrates how to deliver brief interventions to adolescents using the Brief Negotiated Interview (BNI) informed by motivational interviewing (MI), using sample dialogues. The BNI is a great way to facilitate conversation with adolescents about their substance use, as well as what might motivate them to seek treatment, if necessary. These are the key ingredients to change for adolescents.

Along with cutting-edge, evidence-based education, the expert presenters will provide sample scripts and role plays so participants gain strategies to use right away with adolescents in many settings. This free education is ideal for anyone who wishes to gain an in-depth understanding of SBIRT and its use with adolescents, designed for both those who are new to SBIRT and for those who want more advanced training beyond an overview.

Description: One of the largest barriers to providing appropriate substance use services to adolescents is getting them to open up about their use and engage in conversation to reduce or eliminate it, if necessary. The Using SBIRT to Talk to Adolescents about Substance Use four-part webinar series introduces health professionals to the SBIRT model as a way to learn from adolescents about their substance use, talk about what might motivate them to make a decision to reduce or abstain (if needed), and execute a plan to do so.

This third webinar in series demonstrates how to deliver brief interventions based on the Brief Negotiated Interview Model using motivational interviewing (MI) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to assist adolescents in behavioral change. This webinar includes lots of sample dialogues and will present evidence-based strategies that encourage the adolescent to increase their own internal motivation to change their substance use.

Along with cutting-edge, evidence-based education, the expert presenters will provide sample scripts and role plays so participants gain strategies to use right away with adolescents in many settings. This free education is ideal for anyone who wishes to gain an in-depth understanding of SBIRT and its use with adolescents, designed for both those who are new to SBIRT and for those who want more advanced training beyond an overview.

Learning Objectives: As a result of participating in this webinar, you will:

  • Learn how to deliver an effective brief intervention based on the Brief Negotiated Interview Model informed by Motivational Interviewing (MI) strategies.
  • Use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) strategies to identify goals for reducing or eliminating substance use.
