  New England ATTC team members Raymond Sanchez and Mika Salas have developed a new training, "Transitioning to Effective Online Training: Parts 1 – 3" in response to the COVID-19 pandemic requiring the workforce to transition to training virtually. This 3-part training is designed to help trainers use Zoom effectively to engage participants in virtual learning. It may be especially useful to ensure that trainings and technical assistance activities are accessible for individuals living in rural and underserved communities.  Part 1, “Getting to Know Zoom” is a pre-recorded session focused on basic to intermediate Zoom functions in order to build the foundational skills necessary to host, facilitate, and provide technical assistance for any virtual training, meeting, and/or conference. Part 2, “Advanced Zoom Functions and Best Practices” builds the specialized skills necessary to host and facilitate an engaging and secure virtual training. This training describes strategies, techniques, and resources to manage and engage participants in their ‘virtual classroom’ internal to Zoom. Part 3, “Engagement Strategies and Application” explores techniques and best practices to manage and engage participants in their virtual training sessions using both internal and external resources. Participants also have the opportunity to practice integrating these changes into their current curriculum. Due to the evolving nature of the Zoom platform, please note that these presentation slides are current as of May 26, 2021.  After this date, there may be updates to Zoom that are not reflected in these materials.

Presenters: Ali Jalali, PhD, Kathryn E. McCollister, PhD, Sean M. Murphy, PhD ABSTRACT:  This CHERISH (Center for Health Economics of Treatment Interventions for Substance Use Disorder, HCV, and HIV) sponsored seminar will provide an in-depth review of methods for conducting an economic evaluation alongside a clinical trial. Statistical methods frequently employed in applied health econometric studies (two-part, and generalized linear models, recycled predictions, mixed effects, longitudinal analysis, etc.), and best practices for data collection and analysis will be discussed, with examples using Stata statistical software; however, experience with Stata is not a prerequisite. This seminar is designed for investigators who have some familiarity with economic evaluations, but would benefit from a more detailed outline of the methods involved and examples of their application.

Presenters: Rosalie Liccardo Pacula, PhD, and Rosanna Smart, PhD ABSTRACT: Numerous private and public agencies are collecting and reporting out information on state opioid policies to facilitate greater analysis and dissemination of state approaches for tackling the opioid epidemic. Most agencies focus on laws/statutes, which means that this is where the bulk of the research is happening. Definitions of many policies differ across some of the most commonly relied upon sources, which contributes to uncertainty regarding their impact. In this workshop, we will discuss some of the most common definitions being used for various policies, discuss how differences in assumptions regarding the meaning of “effective date” can have important implications regarding the likelihood of finding an impact through analysis, and discuss the importance of considering multiple policy domains.

Presenters: Megan Schuler, PhD, and Beth Ann Griffin, PhD ABSTRACT: Motivated by the context of opioid policy research, this workshop will provide an overview of key methodological challenges faced when evaluating the effectiveness of state-level policy using annual state- level data, as well as potential solutions and practice guidelines. We will begin discussing the commonly used linear difference-in-difference (DID) model and then subsequently discuss DID extensions and alternative approaches (i.e., autoregressive models, non-linear models, doubly robust methods, synthetic controls). Methods will be demonstrated in STATA using an opioid policy case study.

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

At the beginning of the Public Health Emergency (PHE) Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment and recovery support providers had to shift service delivery from a mostly in-person structure to virtual. This swift uptake in the use of telebehavioral-health may be transformative not only for the healthcare system but for the behavioral health field as well. Support derived from clinical and peer group services is essential especially during a PHE when access to services may be limited. SUD treatment and recovery providers have made great strides in virtualizing service delivery especially individual-based services. However, group counseling services, a mainstay in many SUD treatment and recovery support programs, has been more difficult to implement. This two-part webinar series will: review recent research regarding patient satisfaction,  group cohesion, and effectiveness of online group services identify challenges typically associated with online group facilitation and how to address them provide specific recommendations for online group facilitation and how it differs from in-person groups (e.g., tips and techniques, group agreements, etc.) discuss safety protocols, and issues related to ethics and privacy/security and confidentiality in the context of online group case scenarios This webinar series will highlight online group counseling services and will demonstrate its viability as an alternative to traditional in-person groups requiring new facilitative, alliance building, and administrative skills for both counselors and peers.   Telebehavioral Health Group Service Delivery Part 1   Telebehavioral Health Group Service Delivery Part 2

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. For more information about the importance of non-stigmatizing language, see “Destroying Addiction Stigma Once and For All: It’s Time” from the ATTC Network and “Changing Language to Change Care: Stigma and Substance Use Disorders” from the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS).
