Stigma the Gift that Keeps on Giving: Residual Effects of Stress During the Recovery Process from Active Substance Use Part 1 Demetrie Garner, CPRS, and Shawn Colvin, CPRS, RPS, RCPF June 11, 2024, 1:00pm-2:30pm EST COURSE DESCRIPTION While many intricate parts develop a positive outcome to recovery, identifying triggers that cause stress is the first step to a continuous, healthy recovery. Stigma can often become the conduit for environmental and emotional triggers. It is crucial to challenge and dismantle the stigmatizing attitudes and beliefs surrounding addiction and the recovery process. As we unpack the association of stress and triggers, we will close the loop on the missing link of dismantling the negative attitude of doubt facing the newcomer in recovery. LEARNING OBJECTIVES Understand the importance of identifying triggers that cause stress during recovery. Recognize the role of stigma as a potential trigger for stress in individuals in recovery. Investigate the various ways in which stigma can act as environmental and emotional triggers. Consider how dismantling stigma can contribute to a healthier and more successful recovery. PRESENTERS Demetrie Garner, CPRS, as a Peer Recovery Specialist, has been presented with the unique opportunity of working in the largest Emergency Department in the state of Maryland. This has given him the vantage point to encounter minority disparities. A lack of health communication targeted to African-Americans and other minorities help further this disparity. As a Peer Recovery Specialist, the visible cracks of systemic inadequacies in health care and its access garners attention and policy changes in patients with substance use disorders. Having the experience in active addiction abusing opiates, cocaine, and alcohol for 26 years with countless relapses fostered the experience needed to help others in active addiction. Finding recovery over the last 2 and 1/2 years while working in the recovery field has given Demetrie a unique perspective in recidivism and retention throughout the process of recovery. With the help of the God of his understanding (Jesus Christ), Narcotics Anonymous, and healthy relationships, the pathway of a daily reprieve from active addiction is now possible. Continuous work through pastoral licensed counseling has unlocked the acceptance of childhood molestation and recovery from trauma. After 21 years since Demetrie decided to drop out of high school in the 11th grade, education seemed to become more important to obtain. If he wants to help individuals who look like himself and suffer from trauma and active addiction, then higher education has to be pursued. While at the University of Maryland at Baltimore County, currently a sophomore, Demetrie’s interest in studies is in the social science of public health. Future involvement with research is being pursued with patients that have wait times in emergency rooms with substance use disorders. Previous research this past semester has examined minorities hesitancy to receive Covid vaccinations. Shawn Colvin, CPRS, RPS, RCPF, has been working in the field of recovery professionally for 10 1/2 years at the Helping Up Mission in Baltimore City. He has been clean and sober for 13 years. Shawn loves being a Treatment Manager, Peer Specialist, Facilitator, and Treatment Coordinator! Shawn has a passion for assisting others toward a life of positive transformation out of the darkness of addiction!

  The Great Lakes PTTC is offering this training for prevention professionals in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, and WI. Many people who work in harm reduction consider their work to be a "calling." Two occupational hazards, burnout and compassion fatigue/secondary trauma, can undermine that calling and diminish your effectiveness. Burnout is caused by feeling ineffective in your work and organizational/team stress. Compassion fatigue (also called secondary trauma/secondary PTSD) results from absorbing the traumatic stories and experiences of clients. Both occupational hazards can lead to a loss of energy, loss of hope, loss of enthusiasm, loss of idealism, spiritual distress, and decreased effectiveness. This virtual presentation focuses on how to prevent and recover from burnout and compassion fatigue, with an emphasis on self-care and the four things high performers do to prevent burnout and compassion fatigue. We will also discuss how to maintain energy, reduce frustration in your clinical work, and feel more successful.   LEARNING OBJECTIVES  Be aware of the four stages of burnout Understand the differences between burnout and compassion fatigue Evaluate your vulnerability for developing compassion fatigue Learn and utilize 10 strategies to prevent burnout and compassion fatigue Learn skills to reduce frustration in your clinical work Feel a greater sense of success in your work     PRESENTER   Mark Sanders, LCSW, CADC, is Illinois state project manager for the Great Lakes ATTC, MHTTC, and PTTC. He is an international speaker in the behavioral health field whose presentations have reached thousands throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, the Caribbean and British Virgin Islands.

Description: Since the beginning of the pandemic caused by COVID-19, we have collectively suffered drastic changes in our daily lives. We also have to deal with many individual losses including the illness or death of loved ones, friends or acquaintances and many new concerns such as our physical and mental health, uncertainties about the future, how to help ourselves, our relatives and friends bereaved, and how to feel safe again while maintaining hope and social responsibility. Considering that Familism is one of the strongest values and an important protective factor for the Hispanic and Latino community, this collective experience of grief, loss, and amplified homesickness, puts the physical and mental health well-being of our communities at risk. This webinar is an opportunity to open a safe space to validate our feelings and to reflect on how to experience the grieving process in the best possible way. We will be sharing stories of lived experiences, discussing how to deal with the new adjustments of the post-vaccination period, differences of opinion, substance abuse prevention and acceptance and commitment therapy strategies on how to navigate the grief processes maintaining a life that is meaningful to us.  Learning Objectives:  Describe the grieving process, individual and collective losses and its implications in the context of the pandemic. Discuss the new idea of normality in the post-vaccination period, preparation for returning to face-to-face activities and CDC recommendations; considerations of cultural values related to family and social life and living with divergent perspectives and expectations for the current moment.
