We're heading to sunnyMiami this March 9 - 11, 2016, and we've got three groups we're taking through our conference. If you are seeking to become an evidence-based organization, practitioner or want to get a handle on vicarious trauma & traumatic stress, we've got a track for you.
Plan now to join us along with other practitioners and experts for these certificate programs developed to prepare practitioners and organizations to become evidence-based and achieve certification in the process. They emphasize practical approaches for immediate application, skills development and career growth.
Have You Decided To Become Evidence-Based?
If you answered YES, then come along with your colleagues, fan out and train on how you can become an evidence-based as an organization or as a practitioner.
Track 1 - Want To Become An Evidence-Based Organization (EBO)?
For a focus on the evidence based organization, this is the track for you. Well-meaning organizations adopt model programs and practices with which to serve clients. Frequently this occurs in the absence of an evidence-based organizational framework. Such initiatives become unsustainable and then fade away when funding is exhausted. On the other hand, programs installed at evidence-based organizations (EBO's) thrive, are sustainable over time and consistently produce desired client outcomes.
Track 2 - Become An Evidence-Based Practitioner (EBP)?
If you are an evidence-based individual and looking to develop, this is the track for you. Participants in this training will be in a position to learn evidence-based "common elements" they must practice to successfuly help their clients achieve durable outcomes - vs punishing, warning or "rehabilitating". Practitioners must remain courageous and choose proven pathways in practice.
Track 3 - Are You Looking To Tackle Vicarious Trauma & Traumatic Stress?
A tremendous amount of effort is rightfully expended to insure professionals receive training and are equipped to address the needs of clients. On another hand the training needs of staff to care for themselves in light of the fatigue associated with the compassionate requirements of working with these same clients receives far less attention than is deserved. Recognizing and addressing its impacts and will have immeasurabe benefits to your organizations bottom line.
Joyfields Institute is excited to present season one of our upcoming evidence-based webinar and webcast series. Each episode takes place from 1PM-3PM EST (10AM-12PM PST) on the dates listed below throughout November.
Your investment towards each episode is $125 for individuals or $375 for the whole team.
Here is our full schedule of webinars and webcasts:
This webinar training is designed for new supervisors and managers or those who have little or no formal employee management training. It is relevant for those who wish to acquire fundamental skills for achieving desired results with and through others. Participants will be in a position to gain an understanding of key management concepts and fundamentals they can put to work immediately to enhance theirs and their team's performance.
Predominantly a knowledge transfer, this webcast aims to familiarize participants with the concepts and key elements of this evidence-based practice to enhance staff efficacy in helping their clients successfully achieve desired outcomes, prevent recidivism and minimize the propensity for relapse.
Episode 3 - Nov. 10 - Case Management
During this webcast participants will be in a position to learn to differentiate traditional ineffective deficit-centered practices from evidence-based and strength-centered approaches that the field has moved to. They will learn to help their clients achieve desirable outcomes by promoting interventions which link individuals seamlessly to appropriate resources.
This webcast provides instruction to staff who work with substance abusing clients. It examines the pharmacology of typical substances and the evidence-based methods practitioners must apply to achieve desired outcomes. The program also examines co-occurring disorders and how they serve to further complicate work with clients.
Success and sustainability of any agency is driven by how the management team navigates the employee performance review process. What goes on before, during and after this important event yields benefits which go straight to the bottom line. Yet the process is one many well-meaning managers and supervisors avoid, or at best do not look forward to. Ultimately the appraisal "thrown together" is one the manager themselves would not want to receive. This webinar will help participants learn methods to perform this important function as a seamless part of their day to day activities and drive agency performance to levels never before thought possible.
Episode 6 - Nov. 20 - Motivational Interviewing
Although best taught and assimilated through experiential exercises, this webcast aims to teach foundational concepts involved in the method of MI. The program will help staff learn how to influence clients into considering making durable behavioral changes through intrinsic motivation. In addition they will be in a position to recognize that clients address change issues at different levels of readiness which they as practitioners must learn to appreciate and handle with confidence in a way that is both assistive and collaborative.

Episode 8 - Nov. 24 - Trauma Informed Care
This training is intended to help the practitioner develop skills for assessing the impact of trauma on functioning and ability to benefit from treatment. Implementing a trauma-informed care program expresses a human service program's intention to assess and potentially modify its organization, management, and service delivery system to include a basic understanding of how trauma affects the life of an individual seeking services.
Joyfields Institute To Hold San Diego Evidence Based Conference For Substance Abuse
Joyfields Institute Plans San Diego Conference for substance use and abuse prevention, treatment and management. Joyfields will hold this evidence based conference May 19-22 for evidence based professionals seeking to grow while getting accredited learning hours. The event, which will be held at the Hilton Hotel San Diego Mission Valley, will help attendees learn how to best respond to those struggling with substance abuse in their life.
With our Las Vegas events happening in the next week, San Diego is the next conference on the horizon. We have several packages available during this San Diego Conference for evidence-based professionals. For those interested in Substance Use & Abuse Prevention, Treatment & Management we have a 4 day package and a 2 day package. For those new to the subject matter, the use of Evidence-based approaches in the prevention and treatment of substance use and abuse is supported by the Federal Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration as well as the National Institute of Drug Abuse. A great deal of research now provides clear evidence to support the efficacy of using evidence-based practices over traditional more intuitive approaches.
In addition, we also have another package, our Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Approaches package. Cognitive behavioral approaches have been found to be valuable for the recovery of substance abusing individuals. Significant research exists supporting the idea that many different approaches can be effective tools for changing behaviors related to substance abuse.
Lastly, we have our Motivational Interviewing package. Teams perform like the pros when they are using Motivational Interviewing skills. MI is proven to be fully compatible with various approaches as a method that helps people resolve ambivalence toward change through discovery of intrapersonal fuel by placing complete responsibility for change on the individual.
While we understand not everyone can make the trip to San Diego, we currently have multiple elearning classes on these topics. Consider checking out our membership options and discover a good fit for you and your organization.
