    A 3 hour training event with Angela Thomas-Jones & Diane Fontneau

    1:00 pm - 4:15 pm, August 6, 2020

    This training is remote only.

    PRESENTATIONCompassion Fatigue and Burnout are getting a lot of attention locally and nationally. In 2019, the World Health Organization updating its definition of burnout in its 2022 revised handbook of diseases; International Classification of Diseases and specifically ties burnout to "chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed." In 1999, the Institute of Medicine published a report called To Err is Human that revealed many hospital deaths were due to medical error. This study identified the causal link between clinician well-being, patient care and safety. 

    Recognizing the stress and strain on clinicians, in 2018, the NHADACA Board of Directors voted to increase focus on the ethical mandate for provider well-being and self-care. In 2019 NHADACA also joined the National Academy of Medicine's National Call to Action to address work culture issues that feed this cycle of clinician burnout by publishing an Organizational Commitment Statement. This interactive workshop will briefly review this research and outline steps for becoming a Network Organization. Small group activity will be used as time for discussion and action plan development specific to your agency, group, or practice. Participants will leave with their own action plan specific to their group, agency, or organization needs.  As a result of attending this training, participants will:

    1. Understand the the link between workplace culture and provider well-being
    2. Describe the Quadruple Aim as a model for a sustainable workforce
    3. Be able to identify the steps for becoming a Network Organization
    4. Create a plan for developing an Organizational Commitment Statement

    PRESENTER: Angela Thomas Jones, LCMHC, MLADC, LCS, RYT, CCFP; Motivated by lived experience, in 2018, Angela co-founded a grassroots effort to implement effective practices for clinician self-care as a means to also improve quality patient care.

During her tenure on the NHADACA Board of Directors, she spearheaded re-defining the function and role of the Ethics Committee based on research from the American Psychological Association identifying the Stress-Distress Continuum (2006) and the National Academy of Medicine’s Call to Action for Clinician Well-being. NHADACA is now the first NH Network Organization to join the National Movement for Clinician Well-being. She is Certified as a Compassion Fatigue Professional and specializes in Trauma-sensitive Mind/Body practices and licensed in NH as a Mental Health Counselor and Addiction Professional as well as a Clinical Supervisor with 30 years of experience.

    PRESENTATION:  Tens of thousands of people are trained as peer recovery coaches; many now work in a rapidly growing and changing Peer Recovery Support Services field across a wide variety of service settings. Several of the key tenets in peer recovery coaching are: ‘Meet people where they are at’; ‘You are in recovery when you say you are’; and ‘There are many pathways to recovery’. Still, harm reduction as pathway to and of recovery from addiction remains widely misunderstood. Abstinence-based pathways have for decades dominated the helping services of addiction recovery. Recovery coaches may struggle with coaching a harm reduction pathway for many reasons, including: Lack of understanding about harm reduction; personal, institutional, and cultural bias; and/or lack of exposure to people achieving recovery outcomes through harm-reduction-based means.  Recovery Coaching a Harm Reduction Pathway answers a need as a new phase in recovery coaching development joins a swelling harm reduction movement across North America.  A handful of leaders in both the peer recovery supports and harm reduction movements collaborated to bring this curriculum to its current form.  This program utilizes adult learning theory concepts and modalities to address knowledge, attitudes, practices, access to resources, and coaching skills. As this training explores sensitive topics, its design and delivery are highly trauma-informed. Each class becomes a safe place for self-examination and practice from the outset.

    Participants will be able to:

    1. Define harm reduction as a practice and as a social movement 
    2. Examine one’s beliefs and values around a harm reduction pathway of recovery
    3. Discuss advocacy and practices around social justice issues as part of harm reduction
    4. Practice newly acquired knowledge and skills supporting a harm reduction pathway of recovery.

      ABOUT THE PRESENTERS:  Jim Wuelfing is owner and principle associate of the New England Center, dedicated to exceptional training, facilitation and consulting services for nearly 40 years. In the recovery supports arena he has been a major contributor in the design and delivery of several curricula including the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy and CCAR Ethical Considerations for Recovery Coaches, as well as Ethical Considerations for Peer Assisted Recovery, Developing Excellence in Recovery Coaching and Recovery Coaching a Harm Reduction Pathway.  He has aided in the formation of several statewide recovery community organizations and has served on the board of the Massachusetts Organization of Addiction Recovery. Jim also has a decades long experience working on social justice issues focusing on racial inequities and understanding the dynamics of power and privilege. He co-wrote with Arthur Woodard, Jr. the nationally well-received training Racism of the Well-Intended.  Dean LeMire:  In his various roles across the substance use disorders continuum of care Dean LeMire has facilitated expansion of improved, person-centered, and community-based service delivery. Dean is known as a valuable resource for grassroots organizations which provide peer recovery support services and traditional harm-reduction-oriented services. In New Hampshire, Dean was instrumental in forming a statewide network of Recovery Community Organizations, as well as a statewide network of syringe services programs as a founding board member of the New Hampshire Harm Reduction Coalition and as co-founder of Hand Up Health Services, a multi-county syringe services program. In Texas, Dean cofounded the Texas Harm Reduction Alliance and served as President of RecoveryATX, a Recovery Community Organization serving East Austin residents. Dean now writes and trains curricula for peer recovery support providers and serves as Senior Recovery Services Manager for WEconnect Health Management.

      PRESENTATION:  The presence of female offenders in the correctional population within the nations criminal justice system has been expanding at a rate that far outweighs their male counterparts. Historically, correctional institutions are designed to serve the predominately male offender populations and agencies in the community have not addressed the multifaceted problems that form the context for women’s criminal behavior. Women are released from correctional supervision without the tools to help them live responsibly in the community. Like their male counterparts, most female offenders are poor, under-educated, unemployed and unskilled. However, women enter the criminal justice system with unique needs that distinguishes them from male offenders.  Addiction, poverty, unemployment, physical and mental illness, sexual abuse and violence often traps women in a cycle of hopelessness and crime. Additionally, the separation caused by incarceration has a damaging effect on children of female prisoners, who often become the innocent victims of the criminal justice system. In this workshop participants will identify key strategies and emerging issues of female offenders and the family that is useful in developing effective programming to address the unique and challenging needs of women offenders. Special emphasis will be placed on the evaluation of management and risk reduction strategies that consider the different characteristics of female offenders.  Participants will:

      1. Identify, evaluate and complete a highly structured case-management plan for women with focus on the family unit and issues affecting a woman's situation including alcoholism/addiction, domestic violence, sexual abuse, and relationships.
      2. Examine risk assessments that are evidenced based and provide an overview of the unique needs of women offenders.
      3. Identify programs or approaches for supervision of female offenders in the community.
      4. Discuss women as victims of domestic violence convicted of assault on abusers, sexual abuse survivors, pregnant women and women with children.

      PRESENTATION:  When David Hawkins and Richard Catalano first proposed their Risk and Protective Factor Theory for substance misuse/abuse in the 1980’s, it was thought that there were a separate and distinct set of risk and protective factors for each behavioral health disorders.  What we have learned since then is that that while there are some unique risk factors for various disorders, there are also risk and protective factors that are shared. Knowledge of these can not only enhance the effectiveness and scope of our work in prevention and treatment, they can provide a basis for community collaboration. This webinar will explore the concept of shared factors, list reasons for and examples of their usefulness in strategic planning, and suggest opportunities for collaboration across disciplines.  At the close of this presentation, participants will be able to:

      • define and provide examples of shared risk and protective factors;
      • list 3 reasons for addressing shared risk and protective factors; and
      • list at least 3 strategies for overcoming common barriers to collaboration around shared factors.

        A 6 hour training event with Robin Pinard, LCMHC

        September 15 & 16, 2020

        9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. daily

        This training will be held virtually.


        PRESENTATION:  Frequently, the primary focus for individuals experiencing a crisis or highly stressful life events is on the negative impact of the situation. The possibility of positive aspects resulting as an outcome is commonly overlooked or not considered. This training will present the framework of Post-traumatic Growth developed by Calhoun and Tedeschi. We will explore the model’s identified 5 domains of positive growth that can occur as a result of trauma in an individual’s life. This concept will then be applied to individuals and families experiencing chronic co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders and how their lives can improve as a result of their difficulties. The material will be experienced through a combination of presentation, an interactive exercise and group discussion.  As a result of attending this training, participants will:

        • Define and explore the concepts of trauma and Post-traumatic Growth in relation to co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders.
        • Describe the five domains associated with Post-traumatic Growth
        • Review the Post-traumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI)
        • Explore the relationship between Resilience and Post-traumatic Growth


        ABOUT THE PRESENTER:  Robin Pinard, LCMHC, has over 12 years of experience collaborating with individuals and families in both mental health and substance use settings. She obtained her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology in 2007 and Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2010, both from the University of New Hampshire. She worked as a Residential Counselor at the Manchester Mental Health Center in NH and as a Mental Health Counselor at the Center for Expressive Arts, Therapy and Education. In 2012, she joined the WestBridge admissions team, became the Admissions and Family Service Team Leader in 2015 and then transitioned to her current position as Director of Family Services in 2016. In her most recent position as Director of Family Services at WestBridge, she has led the development of educational and supportive resources specifically for family members of individuals experiencing chronic mental health and substance use disorders. These resources include monthly family webinars, an online family portal, family support groups and a peer to peer family mentoring program. Robin demonstrates a deep passion for understanding and raising awareness of the trauma and impact that it has on the family as a unit and the importance of including family members in the recovery process.
