  • The Girl in the Mirror: Behavioral Health Challenges of Adolescent Girls MD

    03/13/2014 3:00PM - 4:30PM
    Adolescence is a time of transition with unique challenges and pressures for both girls and boys. This webinar series turns our attention on how these challenges and pressures affect adolescent girls. One in four adolescent girls is experiencing a behavioral health problem, but research shows a gap in services, support, and important behavioral health care for adolescent girls—the very tools that help girls successfully transition into adulthood. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is launching Girls Matter! a webinar series addressing adolescent girls’ behavioral health to bridge this gap by providing professionals with information about the critical needs of girls today. This six-part series features professionals from multiple fields and specialties who share a passion for helping teen girls thrive. Continuing Education Hours NAADAC and NBCC CEHs are available through the ATTC Network Coordinating Office.

  • Grief and Loss in Addiction and Recovery MI

    03/25/2014 7:30PM - 9:00PM
    Grief and Loss in Addiction and Recovery” will be presented by Janice Firn, LMSW; Clinical Social Worker on the Adult Palliative Care Consult Team, University of Michigan Medical Center; and Barb Smith, author of Brent’s World. The culture of addiction is rife with experiences of grief and loss for the person with addiction and for family and friends. The nature of these experiences combined with the stigma, shame and general lack of understanding of addiction can make grief and loss associated with addiction exceptionally lonely and difficult to heal from. This program will describe theories of grief and grief recovery, losses that the chemically dependent individual and his/her family experience throughout the addiction and recovery processes, and how recovery program tools can help individuals cope with grief and loss. It will include a personal account of addiction-related grief, loss and recovery from a mother who lost her son to addiction-related causes. This program is part of the FREE Dawn Farm Education Series.
