Workforce Resilience: Promoting Clinician Well-Being - August 6, 2020

Compassion 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

Recovery Coaching a Harm Reduction Pathway - August 10, 2020

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.

Shared Risk & Protective Factors: The What, The Why and The How - August 19, 2020

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.
