Domestic Violence Awareness Month: Responding to Intimate Pa...

Webinar

23

October

It has long been recognized that abuse by an intimate partner can have traumatic mental health and substance use effects. Research has found high rates of both past and current intimate partner violence (IPV) among people in substance use disorder and mental health treatment settings. A growing body of evidence has found that abuse is often targeted at a partner’s substance use and mental health in deliberate attempts to undermine and control survivors and keep them from achieving their recovery goals. These forms of abuse, known as substance use coercion and mental health coercion, not only jeopardize the well-being of survivors and their children, but also compromise the effectiveness of mental health and substance use disorder treatment. All of this is further complicated by escalating rates and severity of IPV during the COVID-19 pandemic. This session will provide treatment and recovery specialists with a conceptual framework for understanding survivors’ patterns of substance use within the context of IPV, will prepare practitioners to recognize and respond to substance use coercion and mental health coercion within treatment and recovery services, and will equip practitioners with strategies and resources tobetter serve survivors and their children.

Statutory Rape Prevention Project: Increasing Awareness, Mand...

Webinar

27

October

The goal of our Statutory Rape Prevention Project is to increase awareness, mandatory reporting, and prevention of Statutory Sexual Seduction (AKA Statutory Rape) and other age-gap relationships. During this presentation, you will learn about teen dating violence, consent, Nevada laws pertaining to age-gap relationships, the harmful impact of these relationships on the victims, and best-practice in reporting. Statutory Rape has harmful consequences on the victim. Research indicates some of the harmful consequences are increased teen pregnancy rates, increase in STIs, increase in high school dropout rates, and earlier drug and alcohol use in victims of these crimes. As mandatory reporters, you are obligated to report violations of these crimes. This presentation assists you in identifying best-practice in reporting. Due to COVID-19 many of the teens you work with do not have as much access to this information from their health classes. This presentation will provide you with the knowledge to better assist the teens you serve.

Risk, Needs, Responsivity Model for Treatment Courts

Webinar

20

November

Risk-need-responsivity theory is based primarily on theories of behavioral psychology and is intended to support efforts at crime prevention through providing services targeted towards individual criminogenic risk factors. The Risk Principle involves matching the level of service to the individuals risk to reoffend. There is a growing support in the research for reserving treatment resources for high risk offenders. The Need principle involves assessing each person for known criminogenic needs and target treatment based on their most salient needs. The Responsivity principle involves maximizing the potential success of rehabilitative intervention by providing cognitive behavioral treatment and tailoring the intervention to the learning styles, secondary needs, motivation, and strength of the offender.

Improving MAT Access and Quality Through Collaborative Care: ...

Online Video

Medication assisted treatments (MAT) enhance opioid use disorder treatment efficacy, yet remain underutilized. Opioid treatment programs (OTPs) can now dispense buprenorphine or naltrexone as well as methadone. Collaboration between OTPs and office-based buprenorphine (OBB) prescribers constitutes a cohesive model providing access to comprehensive services, and encouraging MAT prescribing. During this webinar Dr. Stoller will focus on a model of care he coined “Collaborative Opioid Prescribing (CoOP),” linking OTP expertise with OBB prescribers. The OTP provides assessment, buprenorphine induction, and counseling, while OBB physicians provide ongoing buprenorphine prescribing and somatic or psychiatric care. An adaptive stepped care model adjusts counseling intensity and medication parameters (OBB prescription vs. OTP dispensing; duration of prescriptions). Supporting OBB providers in this manner may encourage MAT provision and access, while concurrently improving treatment outcome. Providing a broad spectrum of medical, social, and recovery services through coordinated care can enhance health outcomes and address unmet patient needs.
