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

    DESCRIPTION:  In this webinar, Dr. Ryan Westergaard will review the epidemiology of HIV and Hepatitis C infection among people who use drugs. He will discuss current and future approaches for addressing infectious disease risks as the epidemics of opioid and stimulant use continue to evolve, sharing research findings from the National Institutes of Health Rural Opioid Initiative.  With examples from community-based research conducted in Wisconsin and elsewhere in the Midwest, Dr. Westergaard will illustrate how changes in injection drug use, policies around harm reduction services, and the COVID-19 pandemic influence communities’ vulnerability to HIV outbreaks and pose challenges to the national goal of viral hepatitis elimination.     LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Understand how changes in the epidemiology of opioid and methamphetamine use disorder have posed obstacles to the goals of ending the HIV epidemic. Recognize the potential impact of incorporating screening, linkage to care, and low-threshold treatment for hepatitis C infection in addiction treatment settings. Discuss a research agenda for a comprehensive, patient-centered approach to health and safety of people who inject drugs.       TRAINER: Dr. Ryan Westergaard, MD, PhD, MPH, is a physician and epidemiologist, specializing in treatment and prevention for HIV and viral Hepatitis, with a special dedication to harm reduction among people who inject drugs. He is currently serving as Wisconsin’s Chief Medical Officer for the Bureau of Communicable Diseases (DPH, DHS). This is in addition to his research and physician-faculty position at the University of Wisconsin Madison School of Medicine and Public Health where he’s an Associate Professor of Medicine and an Infectious Disease Physician for UW Health. Holding these positions has paved the way for building bridges between the institutions and leverage the many resources of all to benefit the health and well-being of residents across Wisconsin.         The Great Lakes A/MH/PTTC is offering this training for individuals working in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, WI. This training is being provided in response to a need identified by Region 5 stakeholders.

The use of electronic vaporizing devices (“vaping”) has skyrocketed in popularity since their widespread introduction across the United States. Through these devices, consumers inhale an aerosolized liquid compound, most commonly liquid nicotine or cannabis-derived chemicals (both CBD and THC). Risks stemming from vaping present an important public health challenge, particularly for youth, but also among adults. While significant research gaps remain, a growing number of evidence-based practices are available to behavioral health practitioners.

Online Course
The intent of this course is to serve as a bridge to intensive technical assistance for healthcare organizations seeking to implement contingency management (CM) programming in their setting. The course offers coordinated instruction and resources specific to administrative assistants (those in nonclinical roles who support client care through administrative tasks such as answering phones, scheduling appointments, and managing a waiting room). This course includes an introduction to CM describing its core elements, scientifically-supported systems, and how it can be used in healthcare settings to have a positive impact on clients. It also offers unique content on how personnel in the Administrative role can contribute to the successful integration of CM into the clinical services their organization offers. For organizations utilizing this course, a strongly recommended initial step is for those in leadership roles to complete the decision-maker course module, including its activity for drafting CM programming customized to the settings needs and resources. Once leaders have formulated and discussed these initial ideas about CM programming, the content of course modules for Clinical Supervisors and Direct Care Staff are likely to be more useful to those staffing groups. Given the complexities of implementing a systems-level practice like CM, organizations are urged to additionally seek out consultation and coaching as intensive technical assistance via a Technology Transfer Center in their region. Also available: Decision Maker, Clinical Supervisor, and Direct Support Staff courses. 1 hour Continued Education Available, NAADAC

Toolkit
A toolkit for behavioral health prevention and treatment providers, recovery community organizations, and individuals in recovery with practical information and tools to enhance their capacity to engage in effective stigma reduction efforts. This guide provides practical information about a variety of approaches to prevent and mitigate behavioral health-related stigma. Some approaches are straightforward and can be initiated by individuals on their own. These approaches include tips on using stigma-free, positive person-first language and writing letters to the editor. Some approaches are comprehensive, such as developing a community action group and implementing a community-based messaging and media campaign. The revision of this toolkit was made in collaboration with the Central East MHTTC and the Central East PTTC.

Presenter: Lisa A. Marsch, PhD (Dartmouth Center for Technology and Behavioral Health) Digital therapeutics–software used to prevent, treat, or manage a medical disorder or disease–are redefining the future of healthcare. Digital therapeutics package an entire model of care that can be delivered with fidelity and in accordance with state-of-the-science best practices into a unified, seamless digital delivery system. Digital therapeutics have been particularly transformative in the field of substance use, mental health, and other behavioral health conditions and can markedly improve access to care, quality of care, and treatment outcomes, while reducing costs, for a wide array of audiences in diverse settings. In this presentation, Dr. Lisa A. Marsch (Dartmouth Center for Technology and Behavioral Health) will review the state of the science of digital therapeutics for behavioral health and timely opportunities to scale up access to these digital health tools via multiple paths to deployment around the world.

  Non-fatal and fatal overdoses are traumatic events that have been increasing over the past 20 years and disproportionately impacting rural communities in the United States (Winstanley, 2020). The human suffering caused by the opioid epidemic and ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic contribute to increased symptoms of compassion fatigue (burnout and secondary traumatic stress) among treatment and peer recovery support providers (Berry, 2021). These symptoms can impact the physical and mental well-being of providers and diminish the quality of care they deliver. This 2-part webinar series will take a deeper dive into compassion fatigue to focus on grief/loss, collective trauma, peer and professional worker loss; and self care.  Webinar Series Objectives Participants will: Learn the nature, scope of overdose death Distinguish the unique sequela of overdose grief and risks for complicated grief Learn basic self-care recovery maintenance in the presence of suffering Learn team support to address suffering   PRESENTER: Kathie Supiano, PhD, LCSW,FT, FGSA, APHSW-C Associate Professor, University of Utah College of Nursing, and Director, Caring Connections: A Hope and Comfort in Grief Program, University of Utah College of Nursing.

Presenters: Ashton Marra and Jonathan Stoltman, Co-Directors of ReportingOnAddiction.org January 2023 Mainstream media perpetuates many problematic narratives about drug use and addiction that increase stigma, discrimination, and bad policy. One way to address these shortcomings is to increase the coverage of evidence-based approaches to addiction treatment and recovery. To do this, we need bridges between subject matter experts and the media. However, many experts are not trained to interact with journalists in today’s media environment. Thus, this workshop is designed to offer customized training to support interactions between the addiction workforce and the media. Topics covered include preparing for interviews and how to pitch ideas/op-eds to the media. Download slides | Watch recording

On-Demand Course: Dismantling Stigma: Addiction, Treatment, and Policy   Course Description This on-demand course will review briefly the new knowledge gained during the past 50 years and describe how this has led to shifts in cultural understanding of addiction that has given rise to new research and approaches that can help reduce stigma and discrimination. During the past 50 years, a great deal has been learned about the etiology, epidemiology, typology, and phenomenology of addiction that has uncovered its complex causes, natural history, and highly variable presentation and clinical course. These novel findings have given rise to a number of clinical paradigm shifts and increased awareness of the many pathways through and out of addiction and into remission and long-term recovery. These findings have helped reduce stigmatization of addiction but challenges still remain.   At the conclusion of the on-demand course, participants will be able to: Identify at least two (2) dimensions that underlie stigma related to addiction. Recall at least two (2) factors that inhibit successful recovery from addiction. Distinguish three (3) strategies that are helpful to address addiction stigma.

The Clinical Supervision Skills Video Demonstration series intends to provide examples of how to utilize specific methods taught in the Northwest ATTC clinical supervision training series. The series follows two mock supervisees and their supervisors demonstrating clinical supervision vignettes on providing feedback, building a professional development plan, and working through a corrective action. The supervisees in these videos are all relatively new to the field, making a more directive approach to supervision helpful for their stage of professional development. The videos below can be viewed as stand-alone or in sequence. Our Telehealth Video Demonstrations Series also includes Clinical EBP Demonstration Videos and Telehealth MOUD Video Demonstrations. Find the complete series here! Produced by the Northwest ATTC. We thank Paul Hunziker for his development of these videos and the clinicians involved for their conceptual contributions to the development of these characters and the supervisory scenarios.

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.
