A major focus in behavioral health care is the reduction of stigma to help bridge the gap in access to quality care for marginalized communities. Supportive and motivating language is essential for engaging persons already burdened with dealing with the challenges that come from substance use disorders, mental illness, physical disabilities and more. People-first language highlights and respects the individuality, equality, and dignity of people with disabilities. This interactive training will provide a review and practice skills on the use of person-first language which aligns with person-centered care, as an effective means of enhancing the provider-client communication and reducing bias perspectives with racial and ethnic populations, persons with disabilities and other underserved communities. Trainer: Diana Padilla, MCPC, CARC, CASAC-T

Presenters: Scott Boyles and Mat Roosa, LCSW-R The collective struggle of healthcare systems to engage in timely and sustained implementation of the ASAM criteria and other EBPs has been well documented. Implementation science helps us to understand the key ingredients of effective implementation and sustainment and shows that didactic education is necessary but clearly not sufficient to ensure implementation success. This webinar offered a brief overview of the ASAM Criteria Implementation Guide, which is based on the NIATx model for improvement which has emerged during the last twenty years as a highly effective toolbox for implementation and improvement of EBPs. The Guide moves us toward a focused sequence of tested process tools for ASAM implementation (walk-through, flow chart, nominal group technique, data-driven PDSA cycles, etc.).
