Some of the most familiar adolescent health programs engage youth in lively group activities, such as interactive games and role plays, where the energy in the room is high and could be mistaken for pandemonium. Now imagine a quiet space, where the trained facilitator guides the participants through a journey that could lead them to change their behavior, avoid risk, and choose a healthy, safe future. Motivational interviewing (MI) is gaining a robust evidence base, and practitioners are enthusiastically integrating it in program implementation. Join Healthy Teen Network to learn more about MI and how it can enhance the delivery of your program.

Using trauma-informed approaches in our work with youth means listening with a different ear--one that hears the child within and recognizes earlier traumatic experiences that may be shaping current behavior. During this 60 minute webinar, we will define trauma and explore the types most often experienced by children. We will make the connections between earlier exposure to trauma and current sexual, reproductive, and parenting behaviors among youth. Finally, we will present examples of how youth-supportive services may differ if conducted through a trauma-informed lens. Presenters: Pat Paluzzi, CNM, DrPH & Deborah Chilcoat, MEdTo register click here.
This webinar will address interpersonal violence victimization, including intimate partner violence and sexual assault in the context of military employment and how and why this is different for women in the military than for women in the civilian community. Did you know that some women enter and/or leave military service because they are coerced to do so by an abusive intimate partner? Were you aware that interpersonal violence victimization may affect military promotion or the ability to remain in the military? What is the role of the service member’s commander in responding to interpersonal violence victimization? This webinar provides an opportunity to hear about current research and from a former commander about his observations and experiences with responding to interpersonal violence in the context of military service.
