Girls' abuse of substances has been increasing, with dangerous consequences to their health and well-being. Among youth ages 12-17, girls' nonmedical use of prescription painkillers, alcohol, methamphetamine, and most other illicit drugs matches or exceeds that of boys. Adolescent girls have different intervention, treatment, and recovery support needs from those of adolescent boys or adult women. This webinar will discuss current trends in adolescent girl substance use as well as effective strategies for intervention, treatment, and support for girls. After completing this webinar, participants will have a working understanding of how the terms gender-responsive, trauma-informed, culturally relevant, recovery-oriented, family-centered, and age-appropriate apply to effective services for girls.Participants will be able to summarize:  

  • Girls' substance use trends and concerns
  • Girl-centered responses and interventions
  • Resources for girls: recovery schools, family interventions, and the Voices Program

Description: 

Some survivors of sexual assault struggle with substance abuse. It’s hard to know how we advocates can help them, especially in rural communities that might not have a lot of resources for survivors or for folks with chemical dependency. Eric Stiles, Rural Projects Specialist at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, will guide us through the addiction issues to consider in our advocacy. In this 90-minute webinar, we will learn about a model for a peer-led support group for survivors who struggle with addiction.

The experts on this panel will discuss some of the evidence-based practices and policies that law enforcement agencies can put into operation to reduce officer deaths and improve wellness and performance. Ample time will be allotted to take questions from the audience.Moderator: Brett Chapman, PhD, NIJ Social Science Analyst.Panelists:

  • Bryan Vila, Professor, Washington State University, will discuss his work on officer fatigue.

Some of the most familiar adolescent health programs engage youth in lively group activities, such as interactive games and role plays, where the energy in the room is high and could be mistaken for pandemonium. Now imagine a quiet space, where the trained facilitator guides the participants through a journey that could lead them to change their behavior, avoid risk, and choose a healthy, safe future. Motivational interviewing (MI) is gaining a robust evidence base, and practitioners are enthusiastically integrating it in program implementation. Join Healthy Teen Network to learn more about MI and how it can enhance the delivery of your program. Presenters: Deborah Chilcoat, MEd & Mousumi Banikya-Leaseburg, MD, MPH, CPH.
