Building a “Virtual Presence” for Telehealth Substance Use Treatment

Tuesday, February 15, 10:00-11:30 am Pacific: As more health care services are offered in a virtual setting, providers are looking for ways to create an environment conducive to health care for adolescents. Typically for in-person substance use services, clinicians must possess skills to create an environment that is private, distraction-free, and encourages young people to discuss/disclose information that is important to positively impacting treatment outcomes and/or recovery goals. Providing these services to young people virtually requires some careful modification of the clinicians’ skills to ensure engagement occurs and positive relationships are developed. Join us to learn how to develop a virtual presence that leads to building empathy, trust, and mutual respect. Register now.

Presenters: Nancy A. Roget, MS, MFT, LADC, Executive Director, Center for the Application of Substance Abuse Technologies; Maryellen Evers, LCSW, CAADAC, CMFSW

Understanding Racial Trauma & Promoting Resiliency

Wednesday, March 16, 10:00-11:30 am Pacific: While racism is not a new construct, what is new is conceptualizing the impact of racism as a form of trauma. It is important that providers understand not only what racial trauma means but also learn the ways in which its symptomatology may show up both within themselves and those they serve. Depending on the skin that one lives in, the ways in which one is impacted by racism is vastly different. This training will provide perspective of how different racial groups are impacted. Special focus will be given to how one may be able to guide their own healing and promote resiliency both within themselves and those they serve. Participants will also get an opportunity to hear directly from youth leaders about their experience navigating this form of trauma in their respective communities. Following this webinar, there will be limited space available for those interested in going deeper in their learning to participate in racial affinity-based exploration. Dates for affinity groups are TBD. Register now.

Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to identify and describe racial trauma.
  2. Participants will be able to explain three different symptoms associated with racial trauma at the individual and community level.
  3. Participants will experience embodiment exercises that they can use to foster healing and promote resiliency within themselves and those they serve.

Presenters: Taquelia Washington, LCSW, Co-Founder; Jo Brownson, Co-Director; Amelia Ortega, LCSW, Radicle Root Collective; Andrea Gutierrez, Youth Board Member; Nydia Hernandez, Youth Board Member, California School-Based Health Alliance
