Each person who enters recovery is as unique as their story. And this month, in honor of recovery month, we are bringing you recovery stories from people in diverse populations. Hear what people in these communities want providers to know.   Episode 1: Laura celebrates her recovery and the person she has become as a result. When her daughter was battling her own addiction, this veteran, divorced, gay mom had to advocate to get her daughter's other mom to be recognized in the healthcare setting.  Laura and her ex-partner were the first parents in MO to have a same-sex partner adoption, but even that legal distinction did not stop the discrimination this queer family faced when seeking medical care for their daughter.

A pressing challenge facing the contemporary behavioral health treatment system is the implementation of evidence-based practices (EBPs). Although many EBPs exist for uptake and delivery to improve treatment outcomes, only 1-3% of provider organizations achieve successful implementation (Bruns et al., 2016). The reasons why provider organizations struggle to implement EBPs are numerous and complex, but a primary reason is that essential foundations of the implementation process get skipped or missed. This presentation from Scott Caldwell, Wisconsin Department of Health Services, will highlight exploration matters with focus on the early steps that organizations can take to create the foundations for later success. Participants will be provided practical guidance and tools for how to engage research-based exploration steps with examples from the field. Read more about this session and the speaker here.

Presenters: Paul Hunziker, MA and Lynsey Parrish-Dearth (Northern Cheyenne, Crow, Turtle Mountain Chippewa), MSW, LICSW March 2023 Culture is a part of every interaction a clinical supervisor has with their supervisees, clients and other staff at their agencies. The leadership role that a clinical supervisor plays demands that they feel confident in their skills navigating cultural discussions. This includes working with staff to develop their skills in cultural humility and awareness. Clinical supervisors in training regularly report that having more representative video examples of supervisor skills would be useful. In response to this feedback the Northwest ATTC has created a video series which demonstrates examples of a supervisor working with a supervisee on culturally related issues in their professional development. For this webinar two of the creators of these video demonstrations, Paul Hunziker and Lynsey Parrish-Dearth, will discuss how they incorporated cultural skills-building into the demonstration. Paul and Lynsey also co-teach a tribe focused clinical supervision skills training. During the webinar they will also discuss implications for training supervisors working in tribe-based settings.  Download slides | Watch recording Keywords: Specific populations, workforce development, training, clinical supervision, cultural humility

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).
