About This Event

The “REJECT” documentary looks at the science of social rejection, with a solution-oriented focus on the roots of bullying behavior and violent behavior against the self or others. It raises public awareness about the serious potential lethal consequences of interpersonal rejection—peer bullying, parental neglect (or abuse), race discrimination, and other forms of social rejection across all ages. A few minutes experiencing rejection can cause reduced sense of self-esteem, self-control, belonging and meaningful existence. Rejection can create surges of anger and aggression; correlations exist between peer rejection and higher rates of delinquency, arrest,violent behavior and substance abuse.

About This Event

The top reasons why teens use e-cigarettes are the use of the product by a friend or family member (39%), availability of flavors (31%), and the belief that vaping is less harmful than other forms of tobacco (17.1%). 

Nearly 30 percent of 12th-graders in Indiana reported using electronic vapor products in the last month. 3,700 Hoosier children under 18 become new daily smokers each year. Nearly 9 out of 10 start before age 18 and e-cigarettes are the most commonly used tobacco product among teens. 

Join us for this event and learn: 

  • the different types of e-cigarettes;
  • what makes vaping appealing to kids; and
  • the various health risks of youth vaping.

About This Event

“Trauma-informed” has become so much of a buzzword that we are even seeing it in memes and popular online publications. But does the ubiquity of the phrase mean that we are losing some of its specific meaning? 

Join us for this presentation to explore the true meaning of “trauma-informed” and how it impacts our clients, our colleagues and ourselves. Participants will gain an actionable approach to creating a trauma-informed workplace and career, using the definition laid forth by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). 

Attendees will work to identify personal renewal goals that align with SAMHSA’s trauma-informed definition and be able to: 

  • realize the work in which they engage can produce vicarious trauma, and why;
  • recognize signs of vicarious trauma in self, clients and colleagues;
  • respond to signs and enact a care plan; and
  • understand the importance of an ongoing care plan to reduce and prevent re-traumatization.
