  • WEBINAR: This is Your Brain on Drugs. This is Your Brain on Trauma.

    October 18, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

    Many of us remember the PSA: This is Your Brain on Drugs. Although the “war on drugs” has had many unintended negative consequences, we remember the egg in the skillet—a powerful image connecting brain function to drug use. Since the 80’s we’ve learned much about the effects of both trauma and opioids on brain structure and chemistry. In this webinar, we will provide participants the tools to confidently discuss the basic science of the surprisingly similar effects of trauma and opioids on the brain, as well as medication and therapeutic interventions, with clients, colleagues, and policy makers.

  • WEBINAR: Substance Use, Trauma and Domestic Violence: Critical Issues, Promising Approaches

    October 23, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

    Substance use is a challenging issue facing domestic violence survivors and the programs that serve them. The national opioid epidemic has intensified the problem.
    But progress is being made. We are identifying promising approaches and building community capacity to address the complex needs of survivors. Recognition of the impact of trauma on survivors’ use of substances as well as the role of substance use-related coercion by perpetrators has led to more integrated approaches.
    This webinar will highlight strategies for addressing the multiple factors that contribute to substance use in the context of domestic violence; promising approaches to the opioid epidemic by rural domestic violence programs; and an evidence-based intervention to increase safety for people dealing with substance use and trauma.

    Laurie Thompsen, MSW, Health and Behavioral Health Coordinator. West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Beth Collins, M.S.W., Domestic Violence Program (DVP) Specialist, Colorado Department of Human Services.

    This webinar is being co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration on Children and Families, Families and Youth Services Bureau, Division of Family Violence Prevention and Services in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
