About This Event

According to the 2018 Indiana Youth Survey, nearly 30 percent of 12th-graders in Indiana report using electronic vapor products in the last month, an increase of 45 percent over 2017 numbers. And, as the brain continues developing until age 25, adolescent use of e-cigarettes containing nicotine can harm the part of the brain responsible for mood, learning and impulse control.

Join us for this experience as we learn and: 

  • Understand e-cigarettes, including JUUL
  • Understand how they are impacting Indiana’s youth
  • Understand the health risks of youth usage
  • Resources to assist with education, prevention and helping those who are addicted

About This Event

As youth face more and more challenges, the youth care field needs to be ready to meet the increased needs of our clients. One way we can do that is to move from trauma-informed to trauma responsive. This session will provide practical tips and strategies for using trauma-informed information to change our interactions, programs, and staff behavior in ways meant to elicit meaningful and positive changes for the youth with whom we work.

Join us for this experience as we:

  • Understand the difference between trauma-informed and trauma-responsive.
  • Learn how to use trauma-informed knowledge to understand youth and guide programming and staff-youth interactions.
  • Learn specific strategies for building a trauma-responsive program.

About This Event

Hoosier youth are significantly more likely to consider or attempt suicide than their peers nationally and Indiana faces significant disparities in youth suicide among vulnerable groups. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 15-24 and the 4th leading cause of death for youth ages 5-14.

Join us as we look at what schools and communities are doing to address this difficult issue and gain understanding on prevention and intervention as a continuum of practice. Along with some practitioners, we will be joined by Jeff Wittman from the Indiana Department of Education who serves as the School Social Work & Foster Youth Specialist and Laurie Gerdt from Community Health Network serving as Program Manager for the Zero Suicides for Indiana Youth.

Participants will hear about reframing for prevention as a means to address youth risk behaviors and also identify exemplars of implementation in school-based and community-based settings.
