ABOUT THE LEARNING SESSION

In the Air is a graphic medicine built to foster conversations with and among young people around vaping, choices about substance use, and social factors. This graphic novel-styled story of five teens going through high school incorporates behavioral science of substance misuse prevention with the stories, interests, and ideas of members of the Tobacco Free Rhode Island Youth Ambassadors. The novel has questions to help guide the discussion, a strong research base, and roots in risk and protective factors. During this session, participants will become familiar with the resource, how to use it to facilitate conversations with young people, and how to use the accompanying facilitator guide. Participants will learn how to request copies and have an opportunity to ask questions and explore how this product can work to support their vaping prevention work.

 

Objectives:

  • Learn about and understand what a graphic medicine is.
  • Understand how to implement In the Air to fidelity and informally.
  • Practice facilitating conversation with this tool.

ABOUT THE LEARNING SESSION

This program serves to strengthen the research and development skills of six New England preventionists who have been in the field for at least five years. This program is meant to be a new layer of professional development to professionals who have the experience of working in the field, and also to provide new resources to the field at large around a priority subject area. In 2021, our priority subject area was Diversity and Intentional Inclusion in Prevention in New England. Six distinct products came from this term, including two from Fellows in RI. During the presentation, I would discuss the program, talk about the six products that were created and how to use them, and discuss the 2022 term which will be available for applications around the priority subject area of the changing cannabis landscape with an emphasis on the prevention domains.

 

Objectives:

  • Learn about and understand how to use the six Fellowship products made in 2021 
  • Understand the Research and Design Fellowship program and how it benefits the Fellows as well as the field at large. 
  • Learn how to apply for the 2022 term
