Human Development Theories in Substance Abuse Prevention

This training is FULL, to be added to the Waiting List click the "Waiting" button below. If you are non OSAP and are taken to payments, select the PAY LATER option.Thank you.

As humans develop there are physical, mental and emotional milestones they work to achieve and are nurtured by family, school, community and society in general. Development plays an important role in substance use and misuse. The most effective substance abuse prevention strategies incorporate an understanding that substance use behaviors can fulfill a variety of developmental needs (Griffin, K. and Botvin, G., 2011). Understanding human development can help preventionists identify what strategies should be employed to increase protective factors and reduce risk factors at various stages of life. This training will explore the journey of human development including several psychological theories (Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Erikson’s Psychosocial Development Stages, Piaget’s Cognitive Development Stages, and Cognitive-Behavioral). Foundational explanations as to how development can affect regulation and decision-making will also be examined. Participants will review examples of prevention strategies based on these theories in order to gain a concrete understanding of how human development shapes effective prevention.

You will be provided with a manual that will serve as an excellent reference for years to come. This training has been updated with a lot of new information, and will be useful to both the novice and experienced preventionist.

Polysubstance Misuse and Abuse: What Preventionists Need to Know

According to New Mexico Substance Use Epidemiology Profile, 2020 (New Mexico Department of Health) the most common drugs causing unintentional overdose death were prescription opioids (i.e., methadone, oxycodone, morphine; 46%), heroin (34%), methamphetamine (30%), benzodiazepines (23%), and cocaine (13%). More often than not, there were multiple drugs involved in an overdose. Further, the Profile notes drug use is also associated with societal problems including crime, violence, homelessness, loss of productivity, and spread of blood-borne diseases such as HIV and hepatitis. This training will explore how opioids, methamphetamine, benzodiazepines, cocaine, and alcohol impact the body when used together. Data examining these drugs will also be reviewed. Though evidence-based prevention interventions for these specific drugs is extremely limited, they will also be discussed. Note: This is an advanced training. Participants are required to have taken training on depressants (alcohol,opioids) and stimulants (Tobacco/e-cigs, cocaine, meth etc.) Prerequisite training will be verified for each participant.

Managing Your OSAP Contract

The Office of Substance Abuse Prevention (OSAP) receives money to fund communities from both federal and state governments. Both of these funding sources have requirements that OSAP must adhere to in order to stay in compliance and maintain funding for the entire state of New Mexico. These requirements trickle down to each OSAP provider into contracts and Scopes of Work (SOW). With decreases in funding availability, it is crucial to manage your OSAP contract and ensure your SOW is fully being met. This training will assist in successfully managing an OSAP contract using proven Project Management tools and techniques. Participants will review tips and practices for: the management plan; budgeting; how to work with OSAP when a strategy isn’t working and suggesting a change in SOW; and developing an archiving process for the repository of project’s institutional documents. Note: This training is open only to OSAP providers.

Exploring Prevention Ethics in Your Organization’s Services

Incorporating a code of ethics into the way an organization operates requires commitment and intentional work. As preventionists, we have a specific code of ethics that outlines our responsibilities to the public, to service recipients, and to colleagues within and outside of the prevention field. Further, if we are Certified Prevention Specialists, or are pursuing certification, we are required to behave in alignment with this code of ethics. This training will provide participants the opportunity to explore how the prevention code of ethics is, or is not, supported within their organization. Then, practical ways to strengthen and/or support the prevention code of ethics will be identified. This training is ideal for leaders, managers, coordinators, and experienced preventionists who actively work to improve the effectiveness of prevention services within their organization. This training is self-paced and you work through the materials online at your own pace. Be sure to set aside the 6 hours needed to complete the work.  Note: This is an advanced training. Participants are required to have taken Ethics for Prevention Professional (or similar introductory prevention ethics training). Prerequisite training will be verified for each participant.

Responsible Beverage Service: A Vital Tool to Improve Alcohol-Related Outcomes

Establishments that sell alcohol play a complex role in prevention. Many times, they are seen as a crucial part of the local economy, yet they can also contribute to problems related to excessive drinking and underage drinking in many communities. How can the prevention community effectively work with alcohol establishments to improve alcohol-related outcomes?  This workshop will help you support local businesses who hold liquor licenses to comply with the law and to partner with prevention to improve community well-being. Participants will learn about best practices in preventing sales and service to intoxicated persons and minors in both on and off premise establishments. Several Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) approaches will be introduced, and we will analyze how they might best fit individual community needs. Participants will develop a draft plan for their communities, including needs assessment, education and training strategies. Resource materials will be provided that can be adapted to support program implementation.
