Since 2006, the State Epidemiologic Outcomes Workgroup (SEOW) has been providing epidemiologic services to the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) of the Hawaiʻi Department of Health. The SEOW has evolved to focus on underage drinking and substance use due to the focus of the federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA): Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS). Based at the University of Hawaii Myron B. Thompson School of Social, the SEOW welcomes all stakeholders interested in using epidemiologic data to inform public health planning. The SEOW hosts a quarterly meeting where individuals/organizations have the opportunity to share information about their substance use data.
1. Explain how local conditions have changed with COVID-19.
2. Discuss how prevention providers are responding with key messages relevant to communities, families, and schools.
3. Share what other coalitions and prevention programs are implementing in response to COVID-19.
Join us for a talk by Dr. Luskin that focuses on optimism. True and lasting optimism is a hard earned approach that leads to a resilient life. It depends on our ability to be grateful for what we have, understand that our difficulties are part of the human experience, and forgive ourselves and others for disappointing and hurting us.
This free, three-day virtual training will cover the topic of ethics in the substance abuse prevention field. The training will cover key terminology, the six principles in the Prevention Code of Ethics, and a decision-making process to use when faced with an ethical dilemma.
