    September 19, 2019

    8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)


    PRESENTATION: Changes in confidentiality regulations and a changing healthcare landscape demanding increase integration of behavioral and physical healthcare make it critical for substance use disorder and mental health practitioners to have a firm grasp of the rules and laws that govern their practice in order to ensure the confidentiality and privacy of the clients they serve.  Managed care, duty to warn issues, mandated reporting, the growing number of mandated clients, the increase in integrated healthcare delivery networks and the litigious nature of our society add additional stress to this requirement.  This workshop will examine the recent changes in the Federal Confidentiality Regulations governing Substance Use Disorder Patient Records (42 C.F.R. Part 2) and the areas of conflict between these regulations and HIPAA.  The practical application of these regulations will be examined with respect to integrated care networks, electronic health records, Health Information Organizations, managed care, client safety issues, duty to warn, subpoenas and court orders.

    As a result of this training, participants will:  learn to recognize the elements that define an individual or entity as a Part 2 Program;develop an understanding of the practical application of the federal confidentiality guidelines (HIPPA and 42 CFR Part 2) to their practice; develop and understanding of the final rules changes in 42 CFR Part 2 and their implications for client confidentiality and counselor responsibility; develop an understanding of the issues involved in balancing the imperative of client confidentiality with the demands of integrated client care; learn to identify and respond to conflicts between competing laws and statutes governing the confidentiality of client communications; learn to respond to subpoenas, court orders and warrants;  learn to identify and resolve ethical conflicts which may arise when working with clients involved in the criminal justice system; develop an understanding the counselor’s duty to warn and the issues that raises with respect to client confidentiality, counselor liability and ethical practice.

    A 3 hour training event with Adelaide Murray, BS

    9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:30 a.m.)


    PRESENTATION:   The generation referred to ambiguously as millennials, Gen Y, Gen Z, and post-millennials is continuing to grow and now sits on the cusp of surpassing Baby Boomers as the nation’s largest living adult generation. As this generation ages into adulthood, behavioral health professionals across New Hampshire are engaging with this generation by working alongside them, providing services to them, and attempting to engage them as partners in their work. However, a gap currently exists related to knowledge of the culture and value systems of this generation, which brings with it communication and working styles that can seem foreign (and potentially frustrating) to those of earlier generations. In all aspects of behavioral health, there is a need to refine initiatives, approaches, and traditional schools of thought in the context of this emerging generation. This training aims to reframe perceptions of millennials and Gen Z, understand the cultural context in which they came of age, and utilize this understanding to discuss interacting with an emerging generation. Through both discussion-based and lecture modalities presented by a millennial, this training provides professionals with a better understanding of this expanding, often misunderstood age group, in order to develop strong and effective communication for productive relationships in the behavioral health workforce and system of care.

    Workshop Objectives:

    •  Evaluate the traditionally negative nature of perceptions towards the millennial age group;
    •  Differentiate the cultural context in which millennials and Gen Z came of age compared to previous generations;
    •  Describe the common practices of millennials and Gen Z in a workforce, educational, and social context;
    •  Identify culturally competent engagement strategies to increase opportunities for partnerships between behavioral health professionals and millennials and Gen Z.

    PRESENTERS:   Adelaide Murray, BS is a Project Associate with JSI Research and Training Institute, Inc. located in Bow, New Hampshire. Ms. Murray works on a variety of projects including the New Hampshire Center for Excellence, a training and technical assistance program working to promote evidence-based best practices related to prevention, treatment, and recovery of alcohol and other drug misuse. Adelaide has been able to couple her personal experiences with cultural evidence to provide a perspective on the culture and value systems of millennials. Adelaide received her Bachelors in Science from the University of New Hampshire in Health Management and Policy: Public Health and is an MPH candidate at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health where she is also a Fellow of the Bloomberg American Health Initiative focusing on issues of addiction and overdose.

    A 3 hour training event with Angela Thomas Jones, LCMHC, MLADC, LCS, CCFP, RYT  

    9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:30 a.m.)


    PRESENTATION:  The nation is in crisis; 96% of respondents to a recent NH provider needs survey meet ‘at risk’ criteria for compassion fatigue and 70.59% of those respondents are concerned that patient safety is sometimes compromised due to workforce shortage.   Despite a behavioral health workforce shortage, there is an increased demand for clinical services. While at the same time, clinicians and counseling programs are expected to “do more with less” but in a faster timeframe (i.e. less time, less staff and less financial resources). Pressure to meet treatment demands, overwhelms, and implies clinician self-sacrifice. This attitude leads to compassion fatigue and burnout; it is time for a change! Clinician self-care is an ethical responsibility.

    Training Outcomes:

    • Learn evidence-informed practices that are effective at reducing compassion fatigue risks
    • Learn how to incorporate evidence-informed techniques into clinical supervision sessions that address compassion fatigue and burnout
    • Gain knowledge about effective clinician self-care as well as clinical practice that assures patient safety

    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.  She is Certified as a Compassion Fatigue Professional and specializes in Trauma-sensitive Mind/Body practices.  She is licensed in NH as a Mental Health Counselor and Addiction Professional as well as a Clinical Supervisor with 30 years of experience.  She is a member of the LADC Board Peer Review Committee and is Chairperson for the NH Association for Addiction Professionals Ethics Committee where 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 regarding Clinician Well-being.  Since 1991, she has contributed to the New England Institute of Addiction Studies, is an Adjunct Professor for Plymouth State University Counseling Program and travels nationally teaching on the topic of Clinician Well-being.  In 2009, she published a literature review; Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Practice after completing Post-Graduate Certification in Traumatic Studies at The Trauma Center of the Justice Resource Institute formerly directed by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, MD.

    A 6 hour training event with James Figueiredo, M.Ed 


    There is strong evidence that culturally responsive care improves client/patient satisfaction that leads to greater engagement in care, improved adherence to treatment and better health outcomes. Through interactive self-reflection and discussion we will focus on improving our ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures to help ensure the needs of all community members are addressed. We will look beyond just race and ethnicity to include gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, socio-economic status, and geographic location. The course includes several activities to engage participants and encourages participants to reflect on how their own knowledge and beliefs may affect interactions with individuals who share different perspectives. The session will feature a segment dedicated to creating greater awareness and forming knowledge and familiarity with the special issues and needs of people from diverse populations who struggle with substance use disorder. Participants will work individually and together to identify concrete actions for creating a workplace environment that is more equitable, diverse, and inclusive. As a result of attending this training, participants will:

    • Obtain a basic understanding of cultural competence.
    • Increase understanding of the framework and rationale for culturally responsive care.
    • Examine individual and organizational barriers to cultural competence.

    A 3 hour training event on October 9, 2019

    1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 12:30 p.m.)


    PRESENTATION:   This course will focus on the transition issues that high school seniors will face if they go onto higher education. Colleges and universities assume that the high schools are adequately preparing their students for this immense transition while high schools hope that the colleges and universities have orientation sessions that will best prepare incoming students. This is not always happening. One of the major risk factors is in the amount of free time incoming college students have to manage-and for some they fill it with high risk choices that can impact their academics, mental health, and overall student success. This course will cover evidence‐based strategies for preventing and intervening with alcohol and other drug use among 18‐25 year olds. Patterns of use, individual risk and protective factors, and campus‐community environmental factors which influence substance use among this population will be explored. Emphasis will be placed on implementing a comprehensive web of strategies to create change in individual and community behaviors, attitudes, and norms around 18 to 25-year‐olds’ substance use. This course will also share screening and brief intervention tools and strategies which have been found to be effective at reducing high‐risk alcohol and marijuana use. The need to enhance the continuum of care for college students’ substance use will also be discussed briefly, specifically, examples of ways to integrate referral to treatment and recovery support services into campus‐community systems. Particular emphasis will be placed upon college settings, although the considerations for 18 ‐ 25‐year‐olds in non‐college settings will also be addressed. Through activities and discussions, participants will: Name three important developmental considerations for 18 –25‐year‐olds around substance use disorder prevention; Describe three effective prevention strategies for the 18 – 25‐year‐old population; and describe two or more models/tools for substance use disorder screening, brief intervention, referral to treatment, and/or recovery support which specifically meet the need of 18‐25 year olds.

    A 6 hour training event with Brenda Westberry

    October 16, 2019

    8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)

    PRESENTATION:   The number of adults in the criminal justice system has soared due largely to prosecutions of drug related crimes and drug addicted offenders. Criminal offenders have rates of substance abuse and dependence that are more than four times that of the general non-criminal population. The shift in criminal justice practices, policies, and laws has resulted in vast racial disparities in the average length of sentences for comparable offenses such as crack cocaine versus powder cocaine. *Thirty-eight percent of prison and jail inmates are African American while Latinos constitute 19% of the prison and jail population. There are major institutions that affect crime and carry out the application of justice for victims and punish offenders. The disparities in punishment and other criminal justice and correctional problems have resulted in the over-representation of minorities in our criminal justice system.  During this workshop we will examine the interconnectedness surrounding race crime and criminal justice including the differences in sentencing, crime and violence. Attention will be given to racial and ethnic disparities in the criminal justice system as it relates to substance abuse as well as the exploration of current research and practices.  As a result of attending this training participants will:

    1.       Identify who is incarcerated and the impact and prevalence of incarceration and reentry on racial and ethnic minorities.

    2.       Analyze racial and ethnic disparities in the criminal justice system.

    3.       Identify the connection between substance use, poverty and crime.

    PRESENTER:  Brenda Westberry is President and founder of Westberry Consulting where she facilitates workshops, conferences and trainings on a national level for businesses, government and community agencies. Brenda is a retired Chief Probation Officer from the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch. She has over 30 years of experience in working with criminal justice offenders, treatment agencies, the addicted client population and recovery organizations. Brenda has extensive training in working with multiple validated risk assessments using evidence-based practices and was trained by members of J-SAT and the National Institute of Corrections in the instruction of Motivational Interviewing, coding, coaching and feedback.

    A 3 hour training event with Brenda Westberry 

    October 17, 2019

    9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:30 a.m.)


    PRESENTATION:  Nationwide, 4.5 million people are on probation or parole which is twice the incarcerated population including those who are in state and federal prisons and local jails. The criminal justice system is too overloaded and effective treatment and supervision strategies often send large numbers of probationers and parolees back to prison for technical violations or for failure to follow the rules. The challenges of reentering society after a period of confinement can be difficult for an offender who does not have the necessary reentry supports to overcome the harsh realities of reintegration back into society.  The churning of offenders in and out of the system leads to an increase in recidivism rates and risk to public safety. Researchers have identified a core set of strategies that can reduce recidivism. These include the use of a validated risk assessment tools, case management services that match appropriate supervision levels and offender needs, cognitive behavioral therapy and appropriate sanctions and rewards for violations and compliance. During this hands-on workshop, participants will evaluate evidence-based practices that have been successful in working with offenders reentering society and will learn how successful reentry breaks the cycle of recidivism. Objectives: Participants will identify the Risk Need and Responsivity principles that are effective in the supervision of offenders; Participants will identify cognitive behavioral strategies that address dynamic risk factors and lead to shaping offender behaviors; Participants will explore targeted supervision strategies that deal with the critical needs of high-risk offenders; and Participants will analyze successful programs that have resulted in the positive reintegration of offenders back into the community

    A 6 hour training event with Eileen Fingerman, MD

    8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)

    PRESENTATION: Substance abuse in Elders is a growing, complex and often silent epidemic. It is under estimated, under recognized, under diagnosed and under treated. Multiple chronic illnesses, polypharmacy and physiological effects of aging can all lead to misuse. Substance misuse and abuse among older adults is often overlooked, mistaking the symptoms for those of dementia, depression or other problems common to older adults. Dr. Fingerman will discuss and dispel common myths and misconceptions about addiction in older adults. As a result of attending this training, participants will be able to:

    • Understand how age related physiological changes can lead to misuse and abuse

    • Identify the challenges/barriers to treating elders with addiction

    • Discuss the difference between “early onset” and “late onset” addiction

    • Understand how Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is complicated in elders because many of the signs and symptoms of SUD are often seen in elders without SUD.

    PRESENTER: Dr. Fingerman is a family physician, geriatrician and medical director of Ibis Health Services which provides intensive self-management for elders with multiple chronic medical conditions to foster successful aging in place. She is also on the faculty at Maine Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency program in Augusta where she teaches medical students, residents, and fellows about the care of elders. She is a clinical assistant professor of community and family medicine at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and at the University of New England. Eileen has a particular interest in addiction medicine and has taken care of patients with addiction problems for many years, and has been the director of Suboxone clinics in central Maine. She is board certified in integrative and holistic medicine and has a particular interest in herbal medicine, and the role of diet in health and disease. Eileen has been teaching and seeing patients for more than 25 years, imparting her passion for helping elders to age most successfully. She is also board certified in integrative and holistic medicine and has a particular interest in herbal medicine and the role of diet in health and disease. Eileen lives in Sidney on a 40-acre organic farm with her husband Tom and daughter Kira, where they grow the majority of their own food and do their best to live simply in a stone house her husband built.

    November 1, 2019

    8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)


    PRESENTATION: This workshop is geared toward people new to the field and will focus on the 12 Core Functions (screening, intake, orientation, assessment, treatment planning, counseling, case management, crisis intervention, client education, referral, reports and record keeping and consultation) and the related global criteria of substance use counseling. Participants will be shown the value of each function, how they are interrelated, and form an understanding of how they apply to clinical practice. This will provide a framework for verbalizing and analyzing the skills necessary for good clinical practice related to work with substance use clients. This course is geared towards non-clinicians working toward licensure. Participants will define the role of the twelve core functions within counseling practice; understand the interrelated aspects of the core functions and global criteria and develop a better understanding of the core functions in the chemical dependency counseling process.

    NOTE:  Although this course meets categories of competence for substance use and other mental health counselors, this training is intended for individuals new to the field of substance use disorders.  This course is core in nature and offers basic information.

    8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)


    PRESENTATION: Treatment programs are changing constantly with new diagnostic and patient placement standards. The bar of credential requirements is always being raised. Clinical supervision provides the most important resource available for training, management decision-making and quality assurance. Supervision is also a critical element of the counseling process, enhancing client outcome and employee satisfaction. The Blended Model of Supervision was developed by Dr. David Powell to address the changes in the substance abuse field. This course will address these changes: bridging the gap between mental health and addictions; new ethical and legal standards and requirements; working in a managed care world; and a specific focus on the use of Motivational Interviewing in supervision. Additional approaches such as Reflective Supervision will be compared and contrasted. This course will examine the credentialing requirements for clinical supervisory certification and will include training in ethics. It addresses the four performance domains of ICRC: assessment/evaluation; counselor development; management/administration, and professional responsibilities. Participants will be aided in forming their own model of supervision as well as being oriented to a range of supervision models and techniques.  As a result of attending this training participants will be able to:

    • Describe their model of supervision;
    • Articulate the latest ethical principles for working in a managed care environment;
    • Define the basic skills and techniques of motivational interviewing based supervision;
    • Define at least ten characteristics of three levels of counselor development and supervision approaches with each level;
    • Identify five problems in supervision and procedures to overcome these obstacles;
    • Demonstrate knowledge and skills in the use of technology in clinical supervision.
    • Articulate an understanding of the contemplative model of supervision and develop an implementation plan for integration into their own model.

    Note :  Participants should be managers, supervisors or administrators in treatment programs, or interested in becoming clinical supervisors.  This course has been approved by many states for CCS crediting by the I.C.R.C. for the clinical supervisor credential.
