ABOUT THE LEARNING SESSION

Join the New England PTTC in a Community Conversation on Opioid Use Disorder hosted through the Recovery Center of Excellence at the University of Rochester. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore stigma around Opioid Use Disorder through arts and conversation.

A Community Conversation on Opioid Use Disorder is not an "academic - this is what stigma is" training. Really, it is a conversation for people to explore stigma, how we support people with OUD and their families, and how we work together in our communities to reduce stigma. This workshop is highly interactive and discussion-based. We use many portraits and videos to facilitate the conversation. If you want to see some of the portraits, here is a link to our website: https://recoverycenterofexcellence.org/learn/stigma

 

We will hold two sessions of this event to accommodate more people. As you register, you can select the session that works best for your schedule.

  • Morning Session - Wednesday 10/19, 9:00-11:30 am
  • Afternoon Session - Wednesday 10/19, 2:00-4:30 pm
 

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE

This workshop is intended primarily for participants in rural areas in the New England region (CT, ME, MA, NH, RI, VT); however, remaining spaces may be filled by those living or working in non-rural communities.

After the workshop, participants who may be interested in taking this presentation back to their communities can request information on participating in a train-the-trainer event.
