December

Whole-person wellness is becoming an integral part of behavior health. Research indicates that a strong mind-body connection helps clients to understand the impacts of their lifestyle choices. This is relevant when helping people to achieve optimal physical and mental health. Within this workshop, we will examine the impact of lifestyle choices on mental health. Lifestyle habits (e.g. nutrition, physical activity, sleep) will be discussed, as well as, supportive ways to help your clients achieving their best health. The workshop will include experiential practices, communication techniques, and discussion-based learning exercises. Upon completion of the workshop participants should be able to: Explain three lifestyle factors that have an impact on mental health; Describe three simple everyday habits that can be incorporated into your practice with clients; Describe two factors that impact motivation of an individual; Demonstrate at least one approach to help clients consider behavior change; and Evaluate your own health and wellbeing and discover the impact it has on the people you work with. Note: This workshop has been approved by the State of Nevada Board of Psychological Examiners for 6 hours of continuing Education, NV18--1113CE.

One approach to bridging this gap has emerged as a result of advances in technology and increased availability of and access to the Internet. Using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services, including substance use disorders treatment and recovery support, is impacting how behavioral health professionals deliver treatment services and what constitutes typical standards of care. However, these growing trends towards using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services raises specific practice concerns that agency administrators and staff need to take into consideration.

One approach to bridging this gap has emerged as a result of advances in technology and increased availability of and access to the Internet. Using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services, including treatment, recovery support, and clinical supervision, is impacting how behavioral health professionals deliver these services. Clinical supervision has been shown to decrease staff turnover, improve morale, and lead to better patient outcomes by improving delivery of evidence-based care. Technology Based Clinical Supervision may be a way to overcome barriers to conducting supervision and enhance the clinical skills of the behavioral health treatment workforce. However, these growing trends towards using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services raises specific practice concerns that agency administrators and staff need to take into consideration. This training will focus on developing the tools and training necessary to provide quality Technology Based Clinical Supervision as well as identify legal and ethical concerns in providing services in this way.

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.

Leveraging Technology to Engage Students in Recovery (CC)

Online Video

The digital landscape has changed dramatically in the past 20 years. From the advent of email to the proliferation of social media and anonymous rant sites, identifying which platforms will be advantageous for increasing student engagement can be overwhelming. For example, the much-maligned app Yik-Yak has been criticized as a source of anonymous hate, but has the potential to reach vulnerable students, raise awareness about campus resources, and be a channel for anonymous positivity. The University of Texas at Austin has had success with an internal email listserv, a private Facebook group, a public-facing Facebook page, and text messaging, but has not successfully engaged students via GroupMe or Twitter. The University of North Texas, in contrast, has had great success with student engagement via GroupMe, Twitter, and CyberDust as well as more traditional digital platforms. There are also dozens of recovery-oriented mobile apps currently available or in development. As the social media, mobile app and school-specific digital landscape continues to evolve, collegiate recovery professionals must adapt to meet students in recovery wherever they gather and engage online.
