Virtual TA Session
Virtual service delivery in the substance use and mental health treatment fields is here to stay, according to Meurer-Lynn (2023) and other notable researchers (Aafies- van Doom, et al., 2023; Shore, 2021; etc.). As such, how to blend in-person and virtual service (hybrid) delivery becomes an important question. Hybrid service delivery is a mixture of in-person sessions with videoconferencing sessions and may include phone check-ins. Hybrid service delivery models are known for providing flexibility, especially to clients with access issues, such as clients living in rural areas or those with transportation issues. Join the online consultation session every third Friday of the month to ask questions and discuss/share hybrid service delivery tips for practitioners. Examples of topics that can be discussed are: how to determine the right combination/ratio of virtual and in-person sessions; leveraging in-person and virtual (video and phone) sessions; negotiating a schedule with clients that will increase engagement, attendance, and adherence to treatment; what clinicians and administrators need to consider when initiating hybrid delivery services (e.g., reimbursement, privacy/security issues, staffing, telephone policies).

Presented by: Scott Boyles and Mat Roosa, LCSW-R The collective struggle of healthcare systems to engage in timely and sustained implementation of the ASAM criteria and other EBPs has been well documented. Implementation science helps us to understand the key ingredients of effective implementation and sustainment and shows that didactic education is necessary but clearly not sufficient to ensure implementation success. This webinar will offer a brief overview of the ASAM Criteria Implementation Guide which is based on The NIATx model for improvement which has emerged during the last twenty years as a highly effective toolbox for implementation and improvement of EBPs. The Guide moves us toward a focused sequence of tested process tools for ASAM implementation (walk-through, flow chart, nominal group technique, data-driven PDSA cycles, etc.). Objectives Review and identify key concepts of the ASAM Criteria Implementation Guide Discuss how the ASAM Criteria's Guiding Principles Checklist and the ASAM Criteria Checklist can help identify and guide improvement strategies. Understand the NIATx model and the functions of the NIATx Charter Develop awareness around two or three ways the NIATx tools could be used to enhance services in alignment with the ASAM Principles Checklist.

Peer professionals provide an array of recovery-oriented and person-centered care which include empathetic engagement with survivors of trauma circumstances. This work at times can increase the peer’s vulnerability to vicarious trauma or secondary stress. Potentially it can result in the loss of ability to objectively help others find their recovery pathways and can affect the peer’s and other staff mental and emotional wellbeing. This workshop reviews how trauma situations may present when supporting clients to recognize and cues alerting as to when to step away from a trauma-inducing situation. Content will also offer practical strategies for peers and other staff self-care and self-supportive resources to build and maintain resiliency.
