How Being Trauma Informed Improves Criminal Justice Responses

Wednesday, June 7, 2023
10:00am - 2:00pm EDT

Research data indicate higher rates of trauma among justice-involved persons than the general population. The effects of traumatic experiences can challenge a person’s capacity for recovery and pose significant barriers to accessing services, often resulting in an increased risk of coming into contact with the criminal justice system.

This interactive training instructs on what trauma is and how to avoid re-traumatizing individuals, increase safety for them and practitioners, potential to decrease recidivism, and promote and support recovery of justice-involved persons.

Although this training is designed with community corrections, court personnel, and law enforcement in mind, behavioral health providers working with justice involved persons may also find it useful in understanding core issues of trauma and trauma-informed approaches.

This training was approved for four renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and four initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). As an IC & RC member board, OASAS accredited courses were granted reciprocal approval by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Alcohol and Drug Counselor Committee.

Self-Care and Wellness for ALL

Tuesday, June 6, 2023
1:00pm - 3:00pm EDT

Behavioral health and health care settings offer a spectrum of programs including substance use, mental health, and medical and recovery services. Professionals providing these supports use an array of competencies to empathize and assist persons with substance use and other psychosocial problems.

Cultural Humility and Responsiveness in Behavioral Health Care

Tuesday, June 6, 2023
10:00am - 12:00pm EDT

The National Alliance on Mental Illness recognizes that current environmental factors are traumatizing people of color, which as a risk factor can also initiate or increase substance use and potentially developing trauma and stress complications. Provider bias in stigmatic language or other microaggressions affect a client’s capacity to respond to clinical interventions and are often identified in research, as components of poor behavioral health outcomes.

Practitioners who integrate cultural humility in practice are able to support highest levels of patient centered culturally informed care. This interactive virtual training will review practical tools and strategies for providers to identify and diffuse personal bias, dynamics of culture in substance use treatment and how to facilitate and align cultural humility with other culturally responsive strategies to increase patient wellness for racial and ethnic populations.

This training was approved for two renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and two initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). As an IC & RC member board, OASAS accredited courses were granted reciprocal approval by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Alcohol and Drug Counselor Committee.

Change Talk Is Motivational GOLD*

Thursday, May 25, 2023
2:00pm - 5:00pm EDT

Most trainings on Motivational Interviewing (MI) convey the "concept" of "Change Talk" as essential to the practice and stop there. This interactive Learning Community Conversation will review the "types" of Change Talk and provide opportunities to practice identifying this truly essential part of the language of ambivalence; along with it's often vilified counterpart, Sustain Talk. A prior working knowledge of MI is helpful if you choose to join this conversation.

Trauma Informed Care: Concepts & Applications

Monday, May 22, 2023
10:00am - 1:00pm EDT

Data sources estimate that between 25 to 75% of people who survive different forms of abuse and/or a violent trauma develop issues related to substance use. Despite the prevalence of trauma, it often goes undetected particularly in people already dealing with life challenges and at high risk of substance use, misuse, and mental health problems.

This interactive training will review variations of trauma and potential impacts on the mind, and how self-regulation techniques can help address traumatic reactions. The content will further discuss practice specific opportunities for integration of trauma informed care principles and during various points of client interactions. Providers will learn how trauma informed care provides a preventive approach to engagement and supports person centered care.

Medication Supported Recovery (MSR) Moving Past Stigma and Inspiring Hope

Thursday, May 18, 2023
9:30am - 1:30pm EDT

According to the CDC, opioid overdose deaths surpassed 100,000 during the 12-month period ending in December 2021, and is continuing to rise. On any given year, up to 90% of people needing addiction services do not access treatment.

This four hour, interactive training will review different types of MSR (medication supported recovery, previously referred to as MAT) approaches for opioid use disorders (OUD). It has long been noted that many types of treatment services are often stigmatized and prevent many people from seeking much needed help. The Content will examine how personal bias and stereotypical factors can negatively influence opportunities to speak about the benefits of MSR as an option for clients. Also included is the importance of using recovery oriented language and language practice activities to help enhance the peer professional’s communication skills and provide person centered support to clients on their recovery journey.

NOTE: Please note that this course is specifically designed for Peer Support Specialists and their roles. However, Peer Supervisors and other behavioral health professionals would also benefit.

Implicit Bias, Understanding the Impact of What We Don't See

 Monday, April 10, 2023
10:00am - 12:00pm EDT

Research suggests that race and ethnicity are predictors of how services are delivered, and implicit bias is one component that has been identified as influencing the provision of poor care. The elusiveness of unconscious bias underscores provider perception, unwitting use of stigmatic language, and influences assumptions and microaggressions affecting a person's capacity to respond to care.

 

This interactive two-hour training will discuss how cognitive bias develops, is sustained by intrinsic and environmental factors, and contributes to inequitable outcomes for persons of color. The content will also inform on bias reducing techniques and person-first language approaches that can enhance provider-client interactions and outcomes for marginalized communities.

Latino Culture & Communication, More Than Just Translation

Thursday, April 6, 2023
10:00am - 1:00pm EDT

When working with Hispanic and Latino populations, clear language should never be a linear process, particularly for a collectivist society that defines and interprets experiences within a cultural context. Latino values such as ‘machismo and personalismo’ can be very insightful, but when defined and understood through an American perspective, we wonder why we feel a ‘disconnect’ with the Hispanic client/patient we need to provide prevention services to.

 

This interactive presentation informed on Latino cultural nuances that can reframe communication for Hispanic individuals with substance use and/or mental health problems and discussed prevention strategies to support “recuperación” (recovery).

Implicit Bias, Understanding the Impact of What We Don't See

Tuesday, February 28, 2023
9:00am - 12:00pm EDT

Research suggests that race and ethnicity are predictors of how services are delivered, and implicit bias is one component that has been identified as influencing the provision of poor care. The elusiveness of unconscious bias underscores provider perception, unwitting use of stigmatic language, and influences assumptions and microaggressions affecting a person's capacity to respond to care.
This interactive three-hour training discussed how cognitive bias develops, is sustained by intrinsic and environmental factors, and contributes to inequitable outcomes for persons of color. The content will also inform on bias reducing techniques and person-first language approaches that can enhance provider-client interactions and outcomes for marginalized communities.

This training met the requirements for 2 renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and 2 initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). As an IC & RC member board, OASAS accredited courses were granted reciprocal approval by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Alcohol and Drug Counselor Committee. Many other states offered reciprocity.

This interactive webinar will define opioid use disorder (OUD), review adverse effects of opioid use on family dynamics, and review behavioral and developmental concerns for children, including neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). The content will also discuss medications recommended to treat OUD and inform on approaches to support healthy recovery for children and family wellness.

Title: Overdose Grief, Loss, and Healing Supports

Wednesday, November 9, 2022
10:00am - 12:00pm EDT

Opioid overdoses have increased by 28% between April 2020-2021. Statistics are indicating over 100,000 overdoses are occurring annually.

Trauma Strategies for Peer Support Using Self Care

Friday, September 30, 2022
10:00am - 12:00pm EDT

Peer professionals provide an array of recovery-oriented supports 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 mental and emotional well-being.

This two-hour interactive workshop will review how trauma situations may present, signs to recognize and cues alerting as to when to step away from a trauma inducing situation. Content will also offer practical strategies for self-care including ways to build resiliency.

Our trainings met the requirements for renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS).

Substance Use and Mental Illness among BIPOC: Bridging Gaps in Equity

Wednesday, September 28, 2022
3:00pm - 4:30pm EDT

Racialized minority populations are disproportionately impacted by structural barriers to treatment for substance use disorder (SUD) and severe mental illness (SMI). Despite the rate of co-occurring SMI and SUD, treatment for each often remains isolated from the other.

Speakers will offer perspectives from clinical practice, research, and advocacy, while presenting innovative models of thinking and care delivery that aim to bridge the gap between need and access to treatment.

Educational Objectives:  
a. Describe key policies and processes that underly the relationship between SUD and SMI among racialized minorities
b. Identify strategies to deliver culturally competent treatment for co-occurring disorders to racialized minorities
c. Describe specific examples of challenges faced in accessing SUD and SMI treatment for BIPOC communities
d. Provide existing and developing tools to improve the treatment of co-occurring SMI and SUD

The Influence of Immigration Status on Substance Use Disorders & Treatment

 Thursday, September 22, 2022
3:00pm - 4:30pm EDT

Immigration status in the U.S. can significantly limit access to employment, healthcare, and social services. Among undocumented populations, stigma, discrimination, and restrictive legal processes increase risk for substance use disorders while keeping vital resources out of reach. Given the risk of family separation and penalizing nature of regulatory bodies, the needs of this population are not always understood or discussed. This webinar will discuss the nuances of the undocumented experience, from those working with these populations directly in areas of behavioral health, advocacy, research, and policymaking.

Educational Objectives:
a. Describe trends in SUD among undocumented BIPOC communities
b. Identify unique needs and risk factors of undocumented BIPOC communities in the field of substance use
c. Describe barriers to care specific to undocumented populations
d. Provide strategies and examples of preventing and addressing SUD among undocumented populations

SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment)

Thursday, September 15th & Friday, September 16th, 2022
10:00am - 1:00pm EDT

SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment) is an evidence-based practice that uses a preventive public health approach to identify and intervene with persons whose pattern of use put them at risk for or are experiencing substance-related health and psychosocial problems. SBIRT can also be useful in identifying those with a high likelihood for a substance use disorder. As an effective intervention, SBIRT helps to reduce harmful levels of substance use in health and behavioral health settings.

This interactive (role plays, videos, large group activities) 6 hour, two-part webinar (three hour virtual sessions) training will provide an extensive review of validated substance use screening tools and will include skills practice focused on the brief intervention and a review of essential components of successful referrals to treatment.

NOTE: This training will also identify points of contact and other opportunities to use a cultural lens in facilitating SBIRT model without compromising the fidelity of the evidence based practice.

Objectives:    
a. Describe key policies and processes that underly the relationship
between SUD, race and incarceration
b. Identify unique needs of incarcerated BIPOC experiencing SUD
c. Describe specific examples of challenges faced in accessing SUD treatment for BIPOC who are or have been incarcerated
d. Provide strategies for improving access to treatment while incarcerated and disproportionate rates of drug-related sentencing among BIPOC communities

Wiped Out and Still Going! Preventing Compassion Fatigue

Tuesday, August 9, 2022
10:00am - 12:00pm EDT

Despite the demands that come with a profession in the health and behavioral health care disciplines, providers are dedicated to their craft and enjoy a deep satisfaction from helping others. The other side of the job brings pressures and stress that can increase susceptibility to exhaustion leading to compassion fatigue and other occupational hazards. The consequences of compassion fatigue can decrease the provider’s emotional and physical well-being, influence the quality of care they provide for their clients, and negatively impact the interactions with coworkers and so creating an unhealthy work environment for themselves and others. The current health crisis has had a profound effect on people's ability to cope for both communities and professionals, and the need for healthy providers is critical.

This interactive webinar will identify and define often elusive work related conditions, self-assessment tools and practical strategies for self-care and building resiliency.

This training met the requirements for 2 renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and 2 initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS).

CLAS (Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services Standards)

Friday, June 24, 2022
10:00am - 1:00pm EDT

For decades, research data has documented poor behavioral health treatment outcomes for racial and ethnic communities. Behavioral health professionals and organizations are actively seeking to advance equity and meet the needs of diverse populations and provide quality care.

Trauma Strategies for Peer Support Using Self Care

Tuesday, June 7, 2022
10:00am - 12:00pm EDT

Peer professionals provide an array of recovery-oriented supports and person-centered care which include empathetic engagement with survivors of trauma circumstances.

Disparities in prevention, treatment, and recovery from substance use disorders are evident among special populations. While there has been an increase in attention placed in addressing these disparities, there is still much unknown about communities impacted by intersectionality, such as Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and LGBTQ+ communities. This webinar seeks to examine the stigma, setbacks, and successes that members of the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ community encounter in their individual experiences with substance use disorders. This webinar will also review how providers and others in the substance use field can support their own patients and clients with these identities in accessing equitable care.
Learning Objectives:
A. Describe key terms for working with the population, such as intersectionality, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, sexual diversity, and others
B. Identify unique needs of BIPOC LGBTQ+ community in the field of substance use
C. Describe specific examples of challenges faced in BIPOC LGBTQ+ substance use.
D. Provide strategies for supporting BIPOC patients/clients who identify as LGBTQ+

When working with Hispanic and Latino populations, clear language should never be a linear process, particularly for a collectivist society that defines and interprets experiences within a cultural context. Latino values such as ‘machismo and personalismo’ can be very insightful, but when defined and understood through an American perspective, we wonder why we feel a ‘disconnect’ with the Hispanic client/patient we need to provide prevention services to. This interactive presentation informed on Latino cultural nuances that can reframe communication for Hispanic individuals with substance use and/or mental health problems and discussed prevention strategies to support “recuperación” (recovery).

The National Alliance on Mental Illness recognizes that current environmental factors are traumatizing people of color, which as a risk factor can also initiate or increase stress and substance use. Provider bias in stigmatic language or other microaggressions can also affect a client’s capacity to respond to clinical services and are often identified in research, as components of poor behavioral health outcomes. 

Culturally responsive organizations integrate cultural humility in all levels of practice and service delivery, providing highest levels of patient centered care and building equity with persons of color and other marginalized communities. This interactive virtual training reviewed how to integrate cultural humility within care, review culturally and linguistically appropriate services for organizational capacity building opportunities, and demonstrated how culturally informed care increases patient wellness for racial and ethnic populations.

This training met the requirements for 2 renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and 2 initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS) and is also approved for 2 Peer CPRA/CARC certification hours.  As an IC & RC member board, OASAS accredited courses were granted reciprocal approval by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Alcohol and Drug Counselor Committee.

Research suggests that race and ethnicity are predictors of how services are delivered, and implicit bias is one component that has been identified as influencing the provision of poor care. The elusiveness of unconscious bias underscores provider perception, unwitting use of stigmatic language, and influences assumptions and microaggressions affecting a person's capacity to respond to care.

This interactive two-hour training discussed how cognitive bias develops, is sustained by intrinsic and environmental factors, and contributes to inequitable outcomes for persons of color. The content also informed on bias reducing techniques and person-first language approaches that can enhance provider-client interactions and outcomes for marginalized communities.

Overview:  This webinar defines the evidence-based practice of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and draws attention to the distinction between practicing MI and Client-Centered Counseling. Many providers, because they've attended an MI training, are under the impression they are practicing MI. When in reality, based on review of audio recordings, they are not. This interactive opportunity will address this misconception and help providers to intentionally practice MI when appropriate.
