  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.

It is not designed for the mental health professional, and this series does not train the viewer to diagnose, only to recognize and respond. Behavioral health and substance use are common occurrences. Everyone in the workplace can make an impact by learning more about these conditions, working to reduce stigma, and learning how to talk to a coworker who might be struggling and help them to access supportive resources. This presentation was prepared for the Mid-America Addiction Technology Center (Mid-America ATTC), Mid-America Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (Mid-America MHTTC), and the Mid-America Prevention Technology Transfer Center (Mid-America PTTC) under a cooperative agreement from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
