Description: 

Evidence based policy and practice involve a partnership between researchers, advocacy organizations, policy makers and practitioners. Many researchers hope to change policy or practice with their research, but most are unclear about how to successfully achieve this goal.During this insightful Webinar, your expert presenter will use examples from her own experience including: translating research into policy and practice to help researchers identify an appropriate policy or practice audience; clarify what aspects of their research could be used in programs and policy; and successfully work with policy makers and practitioners to move their findings into concrete practice.For more information or registation, click here.

Description: 

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. Presenters: Deborah Chilcoat, MEd &Mousumi Banikya-Leaseburg, MD, MPH, CPHFor more information or to register, click here.

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.

I felt like they guided me personally off the tracks of destruction! The deep dark hole of depression and self loathing have very little power over me now! Get to the next WoR, you'll leave the past where it belongs!"--Hope Springs alumnus, October, 2013 Registration Costs Fees start at $695 for early registration.
