Trusted Adulting: What’s Your Go-To Mode?
Thursday, January 27, 2022
11:30am-1:00pm via ZOOM
Presented by: Coley Hapeman and Kim Siwiec, One Trusted Adult Trainers
Event open to all youth-serving professionals, parents, grandparents, family members, neighbors, caregivers, educators, and mentors!
Are you a Challenger? Cheerleader? Comforter? or Coach?
Find out how to leverage your strengths and team up with other adults to support every young person in every situation.
We know from the research that trusted adults can make a profound difference in the lives of young people, but not all trusted adults play the same role for youth; in fact, trusted adults show up in many forms, and for different durations. Our own interviews and research have told us that, no matter the form or the length of time trusted adults are active in a young person’s life, young people need four different modes from the adults who surround them at any given time.
Participants will learn:
- To identify your “go-to” mode as a trusted adult. Do you lean towards being a cheerleader, challenger, comforter or coach in your interactions with young people?
- How to leverage your strengths and team up with other adults to support young people
- To build common language that allows us to communicate about what a young person might need in any given moment
The Science of Addiction and the Path to Emotional Sobriety
Thursday, February 10, 2022
12pm-1pm via ZOOM
presented by: Dr. Andrew Seefeld, M.D., FACEP, FAAEM
For much of the past century, the study of addiction has lived in the shadows of powerful myths and misconceptions. As a result of scientific research, we now know that addiction is a medical disorder that affects the brain and changes behavior. Preventing relapse isn’t the only way to achieve effective recovery. Addressing the negative emotions which may have led to the development of addiction- or occurred as a result of addiction- are equally important. In this presentation, participants will learn more about the science of addiction and the path to emotional sobriety.
Dr. Seefeld is a board-certified Emergency Medicine physician, practicing in Plymouth, NH. Dr. Seefeld is the Medical Director of the Emergency Department, and Director of Emergency Medical Services and Trauma Services at Speare Memorial Hospital.
