presented by April D. Duncan, MSW, LCSW, RPT
All About Play & St. Louis Play Therapy Institute
Play therapy is a modality that can be used with clients of all ages, but engaging those tweens and teens in play can be tricky! Often times, adolescents and teens are so connected to their electronic devices that they miss the fun and value of play. In this training, you will learn how to engage both tweens and teens in play therapy techniques to address issues around depression, anxiety, social relationships and more! Time will also be spent exploring the issue of art techniques, mindfulness skills, sand tray techniques and supporting the use of technology in the playroom.

Training of Trainers: Delivering Overdose Education and Naloxone Distribution to at Risk Individuals
presented by Colton Baker NCADA, St. Louis, MO
This training prepares individuals to train those who will discuss overdose education and naloxone use with individuals at risk of experiencing or witnessing an opioid overdose. After completion of this course, participants will be given resources to present all materials to others. This course is most appropriate for individuals who will offer trainings to other community organizations and agencies that may work with at-risk individuals in a school setting. Participants will learn about opioid overdose causes and trends, existing efforts to combat the opioid crisis and legislative protections for naloxone use and dispensing, how to correctly identify and respond to an overdose event, including how to administer naloxone, and how to prevent future overdoses. MO-HOPE Evaluation: Learn how to participate in MO-HOPE evaluation protocols, including teaching clients/patients how to complete “Overdose Field Reports” when naloxone is used to reverse an overdose.
