Nevada Zero Suicide® Session #9: Transition

Webinar

27

July

During this session of Zero Suicide® we will explore Caring Contacts. Marlyn Scholl from the VAs Suicide Prevention Taskforce will be focusing on Caring Contacts and how a caring contract model might look within individual health care organizations. Caring Contacts are brief communications with patients during care transitions such as discharge from treatment or when patients miss appointments or drop out of treatment. These contacts, through which care providers continue to show support for a patient, can promote a patient’s feeling of connection to treatment and increase his or her participation in collaborative treatment. Caring contacts may be especially helpful for patients who have barriers to outpatient care or are unwilling to access this care.

Bipolar Disorder: Integrative Treatment Strategies for Lastin...

Webinar

15

September

For too long “take your medication” has been the preferred treatment for clients struggling with Bipolar Disorder. This approach is not sufficient. Clients with Bipolar Disorder continue to rank highest in suicide rates and overall premature deaths. This statistic is partly to blame by the paucity of information available to practitioners on how to manage clients struggling with Bipolar Disorder. If you are frustrated by the recurrence of mood swings, hospitalizations, lack of treatment compliance or feeling stuck in treating your clients with Bipolar Disorder, this presentation is for you. There is finally an integrative approach that combines the most promising researched based theories into a cohesive treatment guideline that allows therapy to be catered to an individual’s specific strengths and needs. Proceeding from a wholistic approach, this treatment goes beyond mood management by evaluating and managing changes in social skills, cognitive functioning and overall health. Although these considerations are frequently overlooked, they are nonetheless integral to allowing clients to manage their symptoms, increase their level of functioning, and improve their outlook on life. You will be provided with tangible interventions that are both preventative and sensitive to your client’s current mood state. In addition, you will be provided with information about differential diagnosis, prognostic indicators, and how to manage co-occurring disorders. This seminar will allow you to go beyond “supportive therapy” and help you assist your clients in regaining control of their mood and life direction.

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.
