Advanced IPS Training

October 1st – 3rd, 2018

Burlington, VT / Bishop Booth Conference Center

Deepen IPS Practice. Learn the Art of Co-Reflection. Explore Crisis as an Opportunity.

Intentional Peer Support requires an ongoing commitment to learning and growth. Once participants complete a Core Training and begin practicing IPS in their relationships, lots of questions emerge—most commonly, “How do I make this stuff work in my particular environment?”

We developed our 3-day Advanced Training to take IPS practice a step further, play out the principles and tasks using relevant scenarios, heighten self-reflection, enhance ways of building mutual connections, and sustain the practice. Our Advanced Trainings are for anyone who has completed a Core Training.

Registrations taken on first-come, first-serve basis. Please register early to guarantee a seat!

Registration Cost:  $750 (includes lunch).

Create Trauma Informed Schools – One Caring Adult – free online course

Please consider distributing this free online training on school based trauma informed responses to children who have experienced child sexual abuse.  I think it is actually relevant for all kids who have experienced trauma and is really accessible for school staff to take.

This is from our colleagues at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center/Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape.  They have a lot of really great free online courses in addition!

One in six boys and one in four girls will be sexually assaulted before they turn eighteen so it’s clear that most teachers interact with students who have experienced sexual abuse. 

Trauma impacts how students learn and how they interact with adults and peers. However, when educators understand how to care for these students, they can help minimize the impact of trauma and foster resiliency.

Our new e-learning course, One Caring Adult, trains educators on how to do just that.

This three-part course consists of seven videos featuring experts such as a trauma specialist, teacher, psychologist, and sexual assault advocate. The goal of the course is to help teachers learn how to make their classrooms a safe and comforting space for all students.
We know that youth who experience sexual violence are more likely to be revictimized in adulthood, which is why it's critical advocates share this course with educators they work with. The course is free and just requires you create an account our online campus. Learn more about the course and find additional resources on children and trauma.

Event Information: New Jersey Recovery Coaches training/webinar

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (SAMHSA/CSAT), in partnership with the Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship, invites you to a webinar to learn about an exciting apprenticeship program for individuals aspiring to be certified alcohol and drug counselors. The apprenticeship initiative is born out of a pilot program that the New Jersey Talent Development Center (TDC) launched in partnership with Homeless Solutions and Mental Health Associations of Essex and Morris Counties in 2016.

Program Background

 

TDC and the Homelessness Solution and Mental Health Association started the apprenticeship to provide their 10 case managers training to become certified alcohol and drug counselors.

 

Former Governor Chris Christie learned about the importance of the training during a site visit and decided to expand it statewide. So, the state awarded the New Jersey Healthcare TDC a $1.3 million grant to expand the apprenticeship program as part of New Jersey's efforts to combat the opioid epidemic. The grant allows TDC to provide New Jersey residents access to 270 hours of free classroom instruction and 3,100 hours of paid on-the-job training. New Jersey’s Healthcare TDC is based in Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations.

 

Webinar Information

 

The 90-minute webinar will focus on how the program started, how the training made a difference to the employees, and how the expansion is helping New Jersey offer this program to additional employers.

 

Time and Date: Wednesday, April 18, 2018, 3:00–4:30 p.m. (EST).

NEAR Talk – How Childhood Trauma Affects Lifelong Health

Trauma… it’s the really horrific things that we go through as people… things that deeply impact us. For some, trauma is a single point in time while others experience ongoing trauma and instability.

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary includes these concepts when defining the word trauma:

Injury caused by an extrinsic (outside ourselves) agent

Results in severe mental or emotional stress or physical injury

In many cases when we experience trauma as adults we have gained the tools and relationships to carry us through. When we experience trauma as children we do not necessarily have those resources or the brain development that gives us the resilience needed. The more trauma or adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) that a child experiences, the greater the likelihood these experiences will have negative health impacts throughout their lifespan that can include obesity, heart disease, and substance use disorders.
