Younger generations of staff expect organizations to care and support their wellbeing, while many older workers were oriented to a culture of work that kept distance between work, self, and “home”- what does this mean for supervisors of diverse workforces? In addition, we know that self-care and self-management can safeguard workers’ psyches and practice against vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue, so where does supervision fall in this reality? This conversation will support supervisors and managers in identifying what self-management is and how it does and does not relate to their roles in guiding and managing staff performance. Learning Objectives: List at least 3 reasons why supervising self-management is a critical component of behavioral health. Recite at least 5 areas in which self-management care plans could be established. Name at least 5 strategies for supervising self-management as it pertains to the work.

Stigma is a factor that can prevent those with substance use disorders from receiving evidence-based practices that allow them to seek and stay in recovery. This training is led by someone with lived experience of drug use, overdose, and navigating the care continuum to eventually becoming a Peer Recovery Support Specialist. We will look at this story and the role stigma played in delaying and distressing the recovery process. Participants will have the opportunity to observe how stigma affects their own experiences and discuss ways to shift attitudes and improve actions which lead to better outcomes and more people in recovery. This is a closed training held at the Missouri Association of Treatment Court Professionals conference.

The words morals, values, and ethics are often used interchangeably in our culture, but these words are not synonymous.  In fact, they are at times in conflict with one another.  This session will distinguish between the three and take an honest look at some of the challenges we face as we seek to be ethical in our practice as clinical professionals.  These differences and tensions will also be explored through applying them to case studies among participants. Objectives: Participants in this session will be able to: Identify the difference between ethics, morals and values List two topics where morals, values, and ethics are often at odds Demonstrate an ethical decision-making model for navigating ethical dilemmas as evidenced by evaluating scenarios for ethical concerns within the context of the group.

Description: The effects of trauma and toxic stress can be noted in the family system when a member is actively using substances.

This presentation will review co-occurring toxic stress and trauma in the context of family wellness and how providers can create a safe space to approach sensitive topics. The content will further inform on family engagement techniques that highlight person-centered, trauma-informed strategies using recovery-oriented language to build trust and rapport.

While men’s addiction and mental health treatment has been quite successful, there is great room for improvement. This new framework, developed by Mr. Griffin and colleagues, integrates the latest thinking on addiction and recovery, relational cultural theory, male psychological development, and trauma. Current treatment models and theories fail to adequately consider the relational needs of men; often omit a clear understanding of the impact of the socialization process on men; fall short of adequately addressing the impact of abuse and trauma that is so strongly linked with addiction and the life of the male addict; and often ignore any social context and/or the consequences of political, social, and economic power.     LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Understand the core theories of this new framework of treatment for men. Have an understanding of how the four core areas of: Self, Relationships, Sexuality, and Spirituality impact a man’s recovery and key issues within each core area. Understand trauma as a defining and organizing experience that forms a recovering person’s sense of self and others.     CERTIFICATES: Registrants who fully attend this event or training will receive a certificate of attendance via email within two weeks after the event or training.     TRAINER:   Dan Griffin, MA, is an internationally recognized author, thought leader, and expert on men’s relationships and masculinity. Dan has dedicated his life and work to exploring and redefining what it means to be a man in the 21st century. He is committed to helping men be better men by understanding the impact of the Man Rules on their lives.
