    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.

    PRESENTATION:  Work provides benefits to all of us, beyond the obvious benefits of a paycheck. It gives structure to our says, can boost self-esteem and provide income that affords us more choices. It also offers opportunities to be a part of, and give back to, our community. Employment is a vital part of supporting individuals to gain greater independence, experience more social inclusion, resiliency and recovery, live more self-determined lives and build social capital. How can community support and residential providers best assist the individuals they work with on their path to employment?

    Learn how to incorporate employment into the work you do with the individuals you serve. This training will draw from tools such as Motivational Interviewing and Stages of Change and evidence-base supported employment and give you tools to develop or enhance a culture of employment in the services you provide to people.  As a result of attending this training participants will be able to:

    • Identify the components and best practices of a culture of work
    • Describe current organizational and staff facilitators for developing a culture of work
    • Describe organizational and staff barriers to developing a culture of work
    • Identify next steps to developing or enhancing a culture of work.

    PRESENTER: Steve Shober, BS, LSW, WIP, is a consultant and trainer at the Center for Evidence-Based Practices at Case Western Reserve University and its Supported Employment Center of Excellence initiative. He provides technical assistance (program consultation, clinical consultation, training, and fidelity evaluation) to service systems and organizations that are implementing evidence-based practices, emerging best practices, and other strategies that improve quality of life and other outcomes for people diagnosed with severe mental illness and substance use disorders. Mr. Shober brings many years of direct-practice and supervision experience to his role at the Center. Before joining the Center, he worked at Eastway Behavioral Healthcare in Dayton, Ohio, as a vocational rehabilitation specialist and job coach then as a team leader and manager who guided the implementation of evidence-based Supported Employment services.

As a result of this training participants will be able to: Explain the difference between acute and chronic hepatitis C infection; Discuss at least two reasons why it is important to promote hepatitis C screening and testing; Describe at least three prevention messages that can be used when promoting hepatitis C screening and testing; and Provide examples of at least three strategies to link persons infected with HCV to health care.

    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 Jake Berry and Jess Wojenski 

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


    PRESENTATION:  This training will equip attendees with the knowledge and resources to advocate for equitable health insurance coverage for mental health and substance use disorder treatment as mandated by federal parity law. Passed in 2008, the federal Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act requires most health insurance plans to cover mental health and substance use disorder services in about the same way that they cover physical health care services. Still, more than a decade after passage of the Parity Act, access to mental health and substance use disorder services remains a challenge for many in need. This training will provide an overview of federal and state mental health and substance use disorder parity laws and enforcement efforts, and will offer action steps and resources to help overcome coverage obstacles.


    Objectives:

    • Identify how federal and state parity laws and enforcement efforts impact access to mental health and substance use disorder treatment in New Hampshire; 
    • Recognize and report suspected parity violations; 
    • Navigate the appeals process for claims denials;
    • Utilize resources available to individuals and providers that answer questions and address parity concerns.
