THE NH TRAINING INSTITUTE ON ADDICTIVE DISORDERS


Presents:

Substance Abuse & The Developing Adolescent Brain 

with Michael Nerney

A 6 hour training event on Friday, March 6, 2015
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)
at Grappone Conference Center, 70 Constitutional Ave., Concord, NH

 
EXHIBIT TABLES AVAILABLE AT THIS EVENT! Click HERE for more information (pdf format)


PRESENTATION:  A 2014 survey conducted by the American Psychological Association indicates that adolescents report out the highest perceived stress level of all age groups in America. New imaging systems signify specific conditions that exist in the brain only during adolescence.  New insights into the adolescent brain indicate higher levels of emotionality and lower levels of emotional competencies.   This new research, combined with the availability of street, over the counter, and prescription drugs makes adolescence a vulnerable, high risk time of life.  Exploring these complexities has generated better understanding of the way in which adolescents perceive themselves, their behaviors, and the world around them.  Participants in this workshop will explore the connections between kids and drugs, the motivation for these connections in light of new research, and discuss possible prevention, intervention and treatment strategies for adolescents.  Objectives:  to review recent research on the adolescent brain; understand the impact of testosterone and estrogen on the brain and on emotional intensity; identify specific pathways related to risk taking and reward in the adolescent brain; explore new research identifying structural and chemical changes in the brain caused by drugs; and discuss the application of these findings to prevention, intervention and treatment efforts.

TRAUMA-SENSITIVE MINDFULNESS-BASED RECOVERY MAINTENANCE WEBINAR

with Angela Jones, MLADC, LCMHC

PRESENTATION: The field of western psychology and addiction treatment is moving towards a more holistic approach to illness, intervention, and recovery. The merging of this process with eastern culture influenced therapies is changing the way the field views clinician, client, evidenced-based practice, current and future research direction.  Though it has its roots in Buddhist meditation, a non-religious practice of mindfulness entered the American mainstream in recent years.   Thousands of studies have documented the physical and mental health benefits of mindfulness in general and is inspiring  programs to adapt Mindfulness based models for schools, prisons, hospitals, veterans centers, and beyond.  The  relevance as a recovery maintenance skill for addictions   is particularly significant because  it  is  a skill  of self-awareness--  the first step into recovery.     Mindfulness  skills  can assist  in  unraveling the complexity that often comes with addiction in the form of co-occurring symptoms.  This workshop will briefly review the research, relevance to effective trauma-sensitive practices, and provide three mindful practices with a script to try for yourself and with your clients or students.

Presents:


ENGAGING EVERYONE IN ADDICTION RECOVERY SUPPORT

with Mark Ames  & Robert Stack, LMHC, LADC, CCS
A 6 HOUR TRAINING EVENT ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1, 2015
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)
at NHADACA, 130 Pembroke Road, Suite 100, Concord, NH


PRESENTATION:
 The chronic nature of addictive disease requires that we reconsider how we provide ongoing support for people trying to establish, maintain, sustain, and in some cases regain recovery status.  Recovery support has traditionally been viewed solely from the perspective of 12-step recovery models, but with the motion toward the incorporation of resiliency and recovery oriented systems of care, recovery concepts have gone through significant re-examination and growth. Various models of recovery support have been created or defined across the country.  This training will examine several of these various models of recovery support.  Distinctions will be made in addressing peer recovery support, non-peer recovery support and recovery coaching.  Participants will be able to identify benefits and practices involved with both individual and group recovery support models.  They will be able describe additional points to consider when providing group recovery support for individuals with co-occurring disorders.  


PRESENTERS:   Mark Ames is the Network Coordinator of Vermont Recovery Center Network.  Through this endeavor he has developed recovery services, trainings, board development approaches, a peer review process and set program standards for providing recovery services.  Previously he has conducted program development for the Vermont Department of Health Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs in the areas of prevention intervention, treatment and recovery supports.  Mark has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Perceptual Psychology.  Thirty-one years in recovery, he is also one of the first Certified Addiction Recovery Coaches (CARC) through the Connecticut Certification Board.
Robert Stack, LMHC, LADC is a Vermont licensed alcohol and drug counselor, a VT licensed mental health counselor as well as a certified clinical supervisor.  He currently works as an outpatient therapist at Otter Creek Associates in Brattleboro, VT.  He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Counseling from UMass Amherst as well as a Master of Science degree in Community Mental Health from Trinity College.

Participants will:

  • Recognize that addiction severity varies
  • Understand the need for “treatment matching”

 Many Pathways to Recovery

with Stephen Gumbley

A 6 hour training event on Friday, April 24, 2015
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)
at NHADACA, 130 Pembroke Road, Suite 100, Concord, NH

 PRESENTATION:  When most people think about recovery from substance use disorders, they immediately assume that what is needed is treatment and a 12 Step program.  One of the fundamental principles of recovery-focused care is that there are many pathways to recovery that are unique based on specific needs, strengths, goals, health attitudes, behaviors and expectations for recovery.  Pathways to recovery are highly personal, and generally involve a redefinition of identity in the face of crisis or a process of progressive change.  The pathway to recovery may include one or more episodes of psychosocial and/or pharmacological treatment.  For some, recovery involves neither treatment nor involvement with mutual aid groups.  Grounded in the work of William White, this course will explore the varieties of the recovery experience, including scope of recovery, depth of recovery, types of recovery, context of recovery initiation, frameworks of recovery initiation and temporal styles of recovery initiation.
 
ABOUT THE PRESENTERSTEPHEN J. GUMBLEY, MA, ACDP II began working in human services in 1968, and has been specializing in advocacy, education, prevention, treatment and recovery of substance use disorders since 1988.  Prior to that, he had worked in the state child welfare system, correctional system, and other state-based service delivery systems.

Participants will learn: 
            *Prevalence rates of suicide attempts by people who misuse substances. 
            *
Prevalence rates of suicide for specific drugs.
            *Contributing bio-psycho-social factors that lead to substance misuse and suicide, including the role 
                of cultural, racial, gender, and spiritual diversity. 
            *
Cutting-edge prevention and intervention approaches to be used by mental health and substance
                abuse professionals

Brief Intervention with Alcohol & Drug Abusing Adolescents: Clinical Applications of Teen Intervene

 

with Ken Winters, Ph. D.

A 6 hour training event on Tuesday, May 19, 2015
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)
at Holiday Inn, 172 North Main Street, Concord, NH




PRESENTATION: Brief interventions make developmental sense given that many drug-abusing youth are not “career” drug abusers and thus not very amenable to disease-oriented treatment approaches. Developmentally, young people are likely to be receptive to self-guided, motivational-interviewing-based behavior change strategies, which are cornerstones of a brief intervention. Workshop objectives: Increase understanding of developmental issues that affect the motivation for youth to change. Gain skills in motivational interviewing. Increase skills in applying a 3-session brief intervention to teenagers suspected of abusing drugs.

The NH Training Institute on Addictive disorders

Presents:

  Sexual Health Programming In Substance Abuse
Treatment and Recovery


with Raven James, PhD.

A 6 hour training event on Friday, July 17, 2015
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)
at NHADACA, 130 Pembroke Road, Suite 100, Concord, NH

PRESENTATION:  The demographics of substance use has changed dramatically over the past 20 years, and many health issues directly linked to substance abuse disparities include a sexual component, (e.g. STIs, HIV, sexual behaviors, reproductive health, sexual dysfunction, sexual orientation, domestic violence, rape, incest, sexual assault), yet few comprehensive approaches currently exist to address sexual health in substance abuse treatment. The Institutes of Medicine recommends that NIH implement research agendas designed to advance scientific knowledge and understanding of health, including inequities in health care; one recommended area includes intervention research to develop and test the effectiveness of interventions that address health inequities and negative health outcomes experienced by women, minorities and sexual minorities. Addressing sexuality in treatment programs can provide a baseline for new understanding, and assist counselors in setting up vital treatment plans and relapse prevention that include awareness and understanding of sexuality issues which may need further therapy, support and intervention. This workshop is designed to provide this understanding so that counselors may make connections between sexuality and addiction in substance abuse treatment and begin to approach sexual health in substance abuse treatment settings.
