Peer professionals provide an array of recovery-oriented and person-centered care which include empathetic engagement with survivors of trauma circumstances. This work at times can increase the peer’s vulnerability to vicarious trauma or secondary stress. Potentially it can result in the loss of ability to objectively help others find their recovery pathways and can affect the peer’s and other staff mental and emotional wellbeing. This workshop reviews how trauma situations may present when supporting clients to recognize and cues alerting as to when to step away from a trauma-inducing situation. Content will also offer practical strategies for peers and other staff self-care and self-supportive resources to build and maintain resiliency.   Trainer: Diana Padilla, MCPC, CARC, CASAC-T has worked in the behavioral health field for more than 25 years.

Focusing on shared risk and protective factors is the 'nexus' to produce shared substance misuse and suicide prevention outcomes. Implementation of effective prevention is guided by collaborative evidence-based frameworks, strategies, and policies.

How many times have you seen (or given!) a presentation where the audience's eyes glazed over with boredom or exhaustion? How do we communicate ideas that are important to us in a way that's meaningful to our audiences? Can we make complex science and deep data meaningful to non-expert audiences? Interestingly, directorial and editing techniques that have long been used in movies correspond with some of the best practices derived from cognitive research about how we can engage our audiences in the delivery of our ideas. This webinar looks at how we can create highly engaging and impactful presentations in our substance misuse prevention work.     LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Explain how basic narrative techniques apply to the successful design and delivery of presentations Describe how design and composition affect an audience's ability to process our messages Apply the Pixar storytelling framework to presentation content design     CERTIFICATES: Registrants who fully attend this event or training will receive a certificate of attendance via email within two weeks after the event or training.     PRESENTER:  Brian Klaas  Brian Klaas is the Assistant Director for Technology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health's Center for Teaching and Learning.

Virtual TA Session
Our Community of Practice series reflects the spirit of lifelong learning. We will never know everything about these evolving and challenging topics. There is rarely just one right answer. But by taking time to talk about these issues with our peers, we get insight and learn new perspectives. We hope you will join us for these facilitated conversations on Zoom that are made better by your presence. Real World DEI: A Closer Look at Self-Assessment - June 27th Learning, unlearning or re-learning equitable and inclusive living is a process, and a personal one at that. Three bias and discrimination tools will be brought to the table, and participants are welcome to bring assessments they may have used. Our conversation will focus on the moments and on-going changes – the a-ha moments – that a good self-assessment creates. We will also discuss how individual self-assessment can transform into organizational assessment. Creativity: Your Professional Spark - July 25th “Don’t wait for inspiration. It comes while working.” – Henri Matisse. Oh, snap! Does it?! Whether it does or doesn’t, let’s talk about creativity, how we stoke it, how we grow it, and most importantly, how we do or don’t, can or cannot, bring our creative selves to our daily work lives. And is your daily work life different from your profession? We will also brainstorm ways to get creativity flowing at work, and discuss guidelines for keeping it on track. Leadership: Exploring 2 Types: Servant & Transformational - August 22nd Greenleaf is credited with beginning servant leadership with an essay in 1970, and our field, practiced mostly in a non-profit setting, tends to attract servant leaders. In the 1980s, Bass expanded on Burns’ 1970’s Transformational Leadership theory and added ways to measure its success. There are excellent reasons to practice these styles, and there are challenges as well. We will discuss how we practice these styles (whether we knew we did or not!), other styles of leadership that we use, challenges we experience in leading with these styles, and how we can continue to grow in our leadership journey. These conversations will be held virtually from Noon to 1:00pm (CST) on 4th Thursday's of the month. Join us for Community of Practice conversations with hosts Cindy Pharis and Steve Miller.

Date: June 20, 2024 Format: Webinar Time: 1:00 PM—2:30 PM EST; each day Cost: FREE ABOUT THE LEARNING SESSION   The connection between substance misuse and suicide is apparent. Both suicide and substance-related deaths are on the rise in the US, and we know that substance use increases suicide risk. More than 1 in 5 suicides (22%) in the United States involve alcohol (Substance Abuse and Mental Health ​Services Administration, 2016). An individual with a substance use disorder is more than three times as likely to have suicidal thoughts than a person without a substance use disorder (NSDUH Data Review, 2016​).   Despite these challenging statistics, there are opportunities in this area of intersection. After this presentation, participants will be able to describe the relationship between substance misuse and suicide, detail the critical overlaps and opportunities for collaboration of substance misuse and suicide prevention, and see what this looks like in the field.   Presenter: Jana Boocock, MSW, CAC, CPS, is a senior prevention specialist with EDC’s Suicide Prevention Resource Center. She is an experienced trainer with expertise in behavioral health and wellness, suicide prevention, and substance misuse prevention. In addition to her experience managing state- and community-led prevention initiatives, she has directly supported youth and adults experiencing behavioral health issues within the community. She will be joined in this webinar by Kelsea Tucker, MS, Comprehensive Suicide Prevention Grant Director in the Rhode Island Department of Health, who will share about work in Rhode Island at the intersection of suicide and substance misuse prevention. About the webinar: This webinar is hosted by the New England PTTC, a program funded through SAMHSA. This webinar is pre-approved by the Maine Prevention Certification Board, an IC&RC member board, for up to 1.5 contact hours for prevention specialists.

Communicating about prevention – what it is and what we do as prevention practitioners – is challenging to say the least. It can also be frustrating to consider that, if we were better able to communicate about our work, it could potentially lead to more partner engagement, more resources, and more community support for it. But, since effective communication is essential to all aspects of prevention practice, it is equally important that we learn one another’s successes in doing it well. Join us for this opportunity to engage with experienced prevention practitioners to discuss how you communicate about your prevention efforts. Designed specifically for professionals who have been in the prevention field for five years or longer, participants will have the chance to exchange tips and techniques for developing prevention messages that resonate with a variety of audiences, crafting messages that reflect your community’s values, culture and readiness to engage in prevention efforts, and turning communication challenges into opportunities. Please come ready to share your experiences, ask questions and actively engage in the conversation! Certificates: Registrants who fully attend this event or training will receive a certificate of attendance via email within two weeks after the event or training.

  Cost: FREE Contact Hours: 1.25 (Certificate of Attendance) Target Audience: Professionals or organizations; Community members (members of a community or consumers); Students or educators (including faculty, administrators, supervisors, etc.) Developed for: SAMHSA Region 3 COURSE DESCRIPTION Identifying triggers is essential at the beginning of the recovery process, but more is to be revealed. Comprehensive support systems, including counseling, employment assistance, and accessible housing, can alleviate some of the stress and contribute to a successful recovery. Sustainable support is a counterbalance to stress and the stigmatization of being in recovery. As we unpack the benefits of support systems, we will also discuss the tools for prevention and how to move forward in recovery. LEARNING OBJECTIVES By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to: Recognize the role of comprehensive support systems in alleviating stress during recovery  Investigate various types of support systems and how they can act as preventive measures in dealing with stress and the association of stigma. Examine tools and techniques and address stress and triggers in a recovery context. Develop strategies to build and maintain long-term recovery and apply the knowledge gained to support others. PRESENTER 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. *CONTACT HOUR ELIGIBILITY In order to be eligible for the contact hours and/or certificate of attendance, you must join the live webinar in the Zoom platform.

  Cost: FREE Contact Hours: 1.25 (Certificate of Attendance) Target Audience: Professionals or organizations; Community members (members of a community or consumers); Students or educators (including faculty, administrators, supervisors, etc.) Developed for: SAMHSA Region 3 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 By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:  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.
