Presenter: Ann Marie Roepke, PhD December 2020 These are strange and frightening times. The global outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted daily life in profound ways. An economic recession, political strife, and the toxic impacts of racism weigh heavily on many. And those of us who work in the “helping professions” have the honor and the burden of caring for others in the midst of all these challenges. More than ever, we need the skills and the relationships that help us to be resilient: to make it through hard times with the least suffering and the greatest well-being possible. In this webinar, we will explore strategies for building up our resilience as we manage the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and associated challenges. Topics we will cover include reconnecting with values, meaning, and purpose; finding self-compassion during tough times; and maintaining motivation to take care of ourselves in the ways that work for us. Please note: This webinar is offered for educational and informational purposes only, and it not intended as a healthcare service, medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or establishment of a doctor/patient relationship.

Click "download" above to access: Transcript & Slide Deck   The Great Lakes ATTC offers this training for behavioral health professionals in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, and WI.   The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a seismic shift in how practitioners provide services. With the sudden shift to virtual services, practitioners have been required to learn new ways of doing their essential work, but with little guidance about how to make those sessions work. Prevention Research Institute began providing virtual training services in the addictions treatment field in 2012 and since then has extended this work to prevention and assisting people in the delivery of virtual services. This session will focus on the pragmatic questions of how to do these services with practical suggestions about what helps and what interferes with client engagement, how to prevent problems, and how to manage when challenges arise. The instructors will use a dynamic blend of didactic, discussion and activities to explore these issues and keep learners engaged.   LEARNING OBJECTIVES At the conclusion of the session, participants will: Articulate three steps to take before the virtual session to enhance the likelihood of success Describe three methods to enhance participant engagement Identify three important equipment considerations for virtual sessions Delineate two approaches for managing challenges in a virtual setting   PRESENTER David B. Rosengren, Ph.D, President and CEO, Prevention Research Institute; MINT Member; IPPA Member

The New England ATTC hosted this webinar which focused on how the ADA applies to addiction services in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.  Today, 30 years after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), thousands of people in recovery from addiction are unaware of their civil rights under the law. The ADA insures that people with addiction to alcohol, and in recovery from opioids and other drugs have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. Find out how the New England ADA addresses alcohol and substance use disorders differently. This session also introduces how the ADA applies to addiction in three phases of employment: pre offer, post offer, and employment. These differences are illustrated with scenarios about alcohol, opioids, cocaine and marijuana. Objectives of this webinar are: #1: Understand the ADA’s definition of disability and how it applies to addiction and recovery. #2: Distinguish how the ADA applies to people with addiction to alcohol, and those in recovery from opioids and other drugs. #3: Learn which protections the ADA provides in access to: employment, state and local government services and places of public accommodations. #4: Learn about does and don’t during the three stages of employment (interview and application, post offer and pre-employment, and during employment).

The ATTC Network understands that words have power. A few ATTC products developed prior to 2017 may contain language that does not reflect the ATTCs’ current commitment to using affirming, person-first language. We appreciate your patience as we work to gradually update older materials.
