Event Date
- Add to Calendar 2021-09-28 14:00:00 2021-09-28 15:30:00 Mentoring Youth Impacted by the Opioid Crisis   While we are still learning about the wide and deep impacts of the pandemic, increased isolation, and major changes in how we all operate in school, at home, and in community; we know that the opioid crisis continues to affect youth and their families across the country. In addition, substance use, misuse, and addiction of any kind are specific experiences that affect many of the young people we work with. In this webinar, we'll look at the ways in which substance use is often a trauma response for young people; as well as trauma producing when it's a challenge for youths' families and loved ones. The webinar will start with a presentation by Elizabeth Joy, MBA, MSW, LISW-S, LCDCIII, BCC; and a moderated panel discussion with two organizations integrating understanding of this issue into their mentoring models: Brian Maus from Eluna and Gene Bowen from Road Recovery.
