Behavioral Health and ESAS Webinar Series
We host two monthly webinars featuring topics of interest to American Indian and Alaska Native behavioral healthcare professionals:
Essential Substance Abuse Skills: A Guide for Professionals is a series which gives an overview of the curriculum founded on SAMHSA's TAP 21: Addiction Counseling Competencies, and bridges the NIDA Principles of Effective Drug Treatment. This series has been culturally adapted to inform those working the Native clients, and is typically offered on the second Wednesday of each month at 1 pm Eastern, 12 pm Central, 11 am Mountain, 10 am Pacific, and 9 am Alaska time. Please see registration information below for each session. An archive of previous sessions is available on our YouTube channel.
