Sexual Violence on Campus: Strategies for Prevention
Tue, 12/06/2016 - 12:00 am EST
Online
Since the charge in 2014 from the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, CDC has continued it efforts to address this important issue. As a result, CDC has released a new technical assistance document titled, Sexual Violence on Campus: Strategies for Prevention. This document is meant to assist sexual violence prevention practitioners in the planning and implementation of sexual violence prevention strategies on college and university campuses. The document provides actionable steps to strengthen campus sexual violence prevention efforts. The resource also introduces a framework for campus sexual violence prevention efforts that includes five components: comprehensive prevention, audience, infrastructure, partnerships and sustainability, and evaluation. In addition, CDC in collaboration with the American Public Health Association (APHA) funds Campus Sexual Violence Action Planning Teams to engage in an action planning process that utilizes the campus sexual violence prevention framework in their campus-based prevention implementation. In this web conference, we will overview the framework components of the CDC’s sexual violence prevention document and the process of the Action Planning Teams as important segments of CDC’s campus-based sexual violence prevention efforts. These efforts have technical assistance implications for prevention practitioners in an action planning process to implement campus-based sexual violence prevention, and ultimately move beyond compliance to change campus culture and climate. Objectives: Describe the five components highlighted in the technical assistance document Identify evidence-informed strategies to prevent sexual violence on college and university campuses Describe CDC’s Action Planning Team process Identify next steps for engaging in an action planning process Visit the website to learn more: http://www.preventconnect.org/2016/11/sexual-violence-on-campus-strategies-for-prevention/

Resilience Can Be Taught! 10 Tools to Motivate Any Student
Thu, 12/15/2016 - 12:00 am EST
Online
In December we welcome Christian Moore, a renowned author, speaker, and licensed clinical social worker, to our free webinar series, Campus Public Safety Online. Christian consults with thousands of school districts on lowering dropout rates, improving school climate, preventing bullying, and closing the achievement gap by teaching social and emotional education. He grew up on the streets near Washington D.C. and struggled with learning disabilities. Despite being told college was not an option, Christian obtained a masters degree and became a social worker in education, youth corrections, and a homeless program, and created the WhyTry organization to address the need for a new approach. Resilience is something we’re all born with. Most people just haven’t learned how to access what’s already inside of them. The WhyTry Program is a resilience education curriculum that provides simple, hands-on solutions for dropout prevention, violence prevention, truancy reduction, and increased academic success. The idea is straightforward: Teach social and emotional principles to youth in a way they can understand and remember. WhyTry is based on sound empirical principles, including solution-focused brief therapy, social and emotional intelligence, and multisensory learning. In this presentation, participants will learn about the vital skills of resilience and creating a resilient climate. This engaging presentation will empower you to deliver these skills to students of any background and learning style, enabling them to thrive not only in school, but in life. Webinar attendance is free, but registration is required. We encourage registrants to sign up groups if more than one person would like to attend, as these webinars are ideal for multiple participants from one institution or organization. Click below to register. The registration deadline is Tuesday, December 13. We record and caption our webinars and make them, along with the speaker’s slides, available on our website.

Thu, 01/12/2017 - 12:00 pm EST
A memorandum of understanding (MOU) is a critical document for establishing coordinated efforts in a school-justice partnership.

When developing a comprehensive MOU, stakeholders must specifically define the roles and responsibilities of each involved party, as well as clearly identify the areas of shared responsibility. All MOUs should be developed with the understanding that it is a living document and will be subjected to regular revisions as changes in goals and dynamics will require adaptability to sustain an effective collaborative. Join the NCJFCJ and Judge Steven Teske, to discuss the steps to develop an MOU. This is a unique opportunity that will provide the tools and resources necessary to create an MOU for local jurisdictions.

Connecting Students to Success: A Comprehensive Approach to Retention and Persistence
Wed, 02/15/2017 - 12:00 am EST
Online
Student interactions with their academic environment including faculty, peers, and student support professionals has repeatedly been linked to a variety of educational outcomes including retention and persistence (Astin, 1977; Tinto, 1987, 2006, 2012; Pascarella & Terenzini, 2005). The Student Success Center at the University of South Carolina has developed and piloted a comprehensive retention initiative designed to personally connect students at a large research institution with resources as they navigate the rigor of the University. Success Connect is a multi-tiered program consisting of 1) outreach to engage faculty and the assignment of a Success Consultant to all first-year students, 2) an early alert component that includes students referred by faculty and those in target populations, 3) behavior and skill-based interventions via one-on-one consultations with a Success Consultant and referrals to center and campus resources, and 4) follow-up with students and faculty. Throughout this process, Success Consultants utilize a combination of the “action-oriented” model of intrusive advising (Earl, n.d.) with the theory-to-practice framework of Appreciative Advising (Bloom, Hutson, & He, 2008) to aid students in designing a plan for academic success. This paper describes an approach that can be adapted and implemented by student support professionals at any institution. Visit the website to learn more: https://portal.csrde.ou.edu/webinars/

Making the Right Investments in College
Thu, 04/06/2017 - 12:00 am EDT
Washington, D.C.
Each year, more than 20 million students invest in a college education. Annual expenditures on college—tuition paid by students plus private, local, state, and federal funding—exceed $500 billion. Given these large investments, it is important to evaluate whether this spending is as productive as it could be. Are students making investments that will improve their economic futures? Are they choosing programs and awards with high returns? Does the economy appropriately reward the skills they gain in college? Is public funding of college efficient? Does the financial aid system help students prosper in college and the labor market? Are colleges organized so that these investments yield the highest returns? Which college systems and policies provide the most help to students? Is higher education regulated in a way that promotes economic growth? The 2017 CAPSEE conference will address these questions as it sums up five years of research from the Center for Analysis of Postsecondary Education and Employment, a consortium of scholars from seven universities housed and led by the Community College Research Center (CCRC) at Teachers College, Columbia University. The research draws on recent large-scale, system-wide datasets provided by five partner states linking college transcripts to individual student earnings. Presenters will include academic researchers, professionals working within education systems, policy analysts, and media representatives.

Addressing IPV in Health Settings
Thu, 05/25/2017 - 12:00 am EDT
Online
With the screening and brief counseling recommendations in the US Preventive Service Task Force, many are looking for the best evidence-based screening tool for domestic violence to use in health settings. However, research suggests that disclosure-based responses to domestic violence are limiting because they constrain our opportunities for prevention and limits education to only those who are ready to disclose and who have been screened appropriately. Additionally, in the quest for the right screening question, the intervention is often overlooked. This webinar offers an approach that incorporates patient-centered brief interventions that are evidence-based and easy-to-implement as well as domestic violence advocacy partnership-building strategies. This webinar will feature new online tools for health providers and advocates, www.IPVhealth.org and www.IPVhealthpartners.org. CMEs available for MDs, DOs and CA registered nurses.

Bystander Intervention: Building the Evidence Base for Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention
Mon, 06/26/2017 - 12:00 am EDT
Online
Bystander intervention is a common approach toward preventing sexual and domestic violence. This has helped shift efforts that focus exclusively on perpetrators and survivors to efforts that elevate the role that every member of a community plays in prevention. A new study, released in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, shows that Green Dot, a bystander intervention program, was effective in reducing sexual violence perpetration rates in high schools. This is an important addition to the growing evidence base for bystander intervention. Join PreventConnect, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, researchers, and implementers of Green Dot to learn more about this new research and to engage in a discussion around the implications this study has for all prevention practitioners utilizing bystander interventions.

Preventing Intimate Partner Violence Across the Lifespan: A Technical Package of Programs, Policies, and Practices
Tue, 06/27/2017 - 12:00 am EDT
Online
In May 2017, CDC released Preventing Intimate Partner Violence Across the Lifespan: A Technical Package of Programs, Policies, and Practices to help states and communities sharpen their focus on prevention activities with the greatest potential to prevent intimate partner violence (IPV) and its consequences across the lifespan. These strategies include teaching safe and healthy relationship skills; engaging influential adults and peers; disrupting the developmental pathways toward IPV; creating protective environments; strengthening economic supports for families; and supporting survivors to increase safety and lessen harms. The strategies represented in this package include those with a focus on preventing IPV, including teen dating violence (TDV), from happening in the first place or to prevent it from continuing, as well as approaches to lessen the immediate and long-term harms of partner violence. In this web conference, we will explore how the technical package can support prevention program decision-making, identify resources to support prevention practice, and examine potential sectors to involve in prevention efforts.

Stuart, FL
Join peers and colleagues March 21 - 23, 2018 in Stuart, Florida to re-think how students are prepared for success in the workforce.  Strengthening workforce preparation would require most colleges to align career pathways and guided pathways. It also would require colleges to shift along two dimensions: moving from siloed non-credit and for-credit programs to integrated career pathways that prepare students for in-demand careers and continuing education; and deepening and expanding partnerships with business and industry to ensure pathways are responsive to local labor market needs.

Tue, 05/15/2018 - 12:00 am EDT
Boston, MA
The current threats to centers of higher education associated with ideologically motivated violence and volatile mass protest, while not new, are unprecedented. Strategies and planning for prevention and litigation must reflect the current threats, tactics, and institutional realities faced on the modern campus. Methods for engaging, communicating, and safeguarding campus communities have changed significantly in a very short period of time. Campus law enforcement, public safety, and emergency management agencies share these challenges across the country. Many have found innovative approaches to tackle these challenges, and others have had their plans and strategies tested by massive, violent protests and terrorist attacks specifically targeting their campus communities.

Human Trafficking: A Rural Perspective
Thu, 05/24/2018 - 3:00 pm EDT
Rural communities have particular challenges regarding human trafficking.

This isolation further challenges opportunities for prevention and intervention services. The lack of economic opportunities in many rural areas also make individuals more vulnerable to trafficking. This webinar will provide information and resources to assist school districts in developing policies, procedures, evidence-based prevention programs and practices as well as focused services for those who are victims or at risk of being trafficked. Participants in this webinar will learn about: Data on the prevalence of the human trafficking of children in rural communities and schools; The risk factors and indicators of the human trafficking of children, particularly in the context of schools; and, Evidenced-based and promising prevention and intervention programs and practices that use a public health approach and can be implemented in school and communities   Register for this webinar, here.

Learning from Higher Education Liaisons: Best Practices in Supporting Homeless College Students, Part 1
Thu, 09/06/2018 - 12:00 am EDT
Online
One of the best practices in supporting homeless college students is having a specific individual to support these students. Many institutions across the country have incorporated this practice of a homeless higher education liaison or single point of contact (SPOC), similar to the K-12 McKinney-Vento Liaisons. California in particular has state legislature (AB 801) that requires the California Community College and California State University systems to designate a Homeless Higher Education liaison on their campus. This webinar features three homeless higher education liaisons representing all three California systems, their roles and responsibilities under AB 801, best practices in supporting homeless college students, and considerations of implementing this role on a college campus. We look forward to continuing this conversation with other homeless higher education liaisons across the country in Learning from Higher Education Liaisons: Best Practices in Supporting Homeless College Students Part 2.

Recovery LIVE! Recovery Supports that Empower People in Treatment and Recovery in their Parenting Roles
Thu, 02/28/2019 - 2:00 pm EST
SAMHSA’s Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) invites you to join national experts in a conversation about the connections between parenting, treatment, and recovery. This virtual event will explore the ways peer-run and community organizations assist individuals in achieving their goals for parenting and recovery. Many adults seeking recovery are parents and identify caring for their children and strengthening relationships with them as primary recovery goals (Reupert, Price-Robertson, & Maybery, 2017). Parents in recovery may need additional support in meeting their family’s needs, navigating systems, building a network of support, and balancing competing demands on their time.   Presenters will share strategies for providing treatment and recovery supports to help parents balance their own treatment and recovery needs with the needs of their children. Presenters will also highlight promising models for connecting parents with trained peers who can offer recovery-oriented parenting supports. This event aligns with critical SAMHSA strategic priorities as described in SAMHSA’s FY2019–2023 Strategic Plan to advance and expand treatment and recovery support services to individuals, families, and communities. For example, these priorities include ensuring that substance-exposed infants and their mothers are identified, treated, and receive long-term follow-up to monitor/prevent long-term consequences.

Vaping Their Brains: E-Cigarettes and the College Community
Wed, 07/08/2020 - 12:00 am EDT
Virtual
The long-term consequence of this epidemic is as yet unknown. What we do know is that early, regular exposure to high-dose, inhaled nicotine results in long-term disruption of the brain’s limbic system and its control of emotions, behaviors and impulse. Adolescents who vape are also four times more likely to try regular combustible cigarettes. Youth friendly flavors play a major role in initiation to vaping as does the addition of benzoic acid to the nicotine molecule making it more palatable to young throats and enabling higher nicotine dosing. Both JUUL and Puff Bar have utilized these technologies in seductive product development, accompanied by predatory marketing practices. There are no effective evidence-based treatments for adolescent nicotine addiction, but there are several on-line support and advice systems that are in trial. The most effective preventive and motivational efforts have been hard-hitting and innovative counter-marketing campaigns and legislative actions to restrict flavors and sales to young people.
