The New England ATTC, in partnership with Gateway Healthcare is providing intensive technical assistance in "Basic Motivational Interviewing" on 7/17/24 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm with subject matter expert Robert Jope. Motivational Interviewing is a client-centered, evidence-based, goal-oriented method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence with the individual. This active, skill-building workshop provides participants with a review of the spirit and micro skills of MI, and focuses on using the strategies of the model to elicit change talk in conversation. Participants will integrate the spirit, skills, and strategies in practice conversations, and are encouraged to attend the Advanced MI workshop to develop proficiency in this method.  [This is a private, targeted technical assistance (TA) event.  If you are interested in similar TA please contact [email protected]]

Webinar/Virtual Training
Presented by: 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 will offer 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.). Objectives Review and identify key concepts of the ASAM Criteria Implementation Guide Discuss how the ASAM Criteria's Guiding Principles Checklist and the ASAM Criteria Checklist can help identify and guide improvement strategies. Understand the NIATx model and the functions of the NIATx Charter Develop awareness around two or three ways the NIATx tools could be used to enhance services in alignment with the ASAM Principles Checklist.

According to the American Psychological Association, one way to define cultural competence is the ability to understand, appreciate and effectively interact with people from cultures or belief systems different from one's own. Cultural humility is foundational to this goal and is a lifelong process that can help increase provider self-awareness and promote person-centered approaches to effect equity in client/patient outcomes. This interactive training invites learners to reflect on their cultural identities, history, and experiences that influence and often cultivate both providers and client/patient perspectives. Further, the content will bring the concepts of cultural humility and cultural competence together as essential components for culturally responsive care in meeting the needs of racial, ethnic, and other marginalized communities.

Stigma of substance use can impede appropriate and preventive care that is critical for older adults and their wellness. Biased perceptions of substance use can often dismiss health related impacts of substance use and impede prevention efforts with the aging community. The webinar will explore how stigma of substance use with older adults underscores the lack of screening and tailored prevention. Content will further inform and educate on age-related challenges that increase substance misuse, medication adherence, and person-centered brief intervention approaches. 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. Many other states offered reciprocity
