‘The Role of Indoor Environmental Hazards on the Health of Children’ – free webinar Wed, June 8, 10am (sponsored by NNLM Region 3)

 

The Network of the National Library of Medicine Region 3, housed at the Gibson D. Lewis Library, would like to invite you to join us for the next session of our monthly webinar series, Health Bytes with Region 3.

This monthly 1 hour series focuses on topics of interest to clinicians, researchers, faculty, and information professionals.

There is a direct relationship between our environments and our health. Our knowledge about the role of indoor exposures and human health has grown exponentially in the past 50 years. Children, because of their developmental status, are uniquely susceptible to certain chemical exposures, many of which are anthropogenic. This report will provide a case example of a multidisciplinary approach designed to explore, identify, and address some of these exposures, particularly the ones known to have adverse health effects in order to improve child health in the Kansas City Metro Area.

‘The Impact of Substance Abuse on the Family’ – join today at 11 am

 

Overview/Description
Substance abuse doesn’t only affect the abusing individual, but also their family members, friends, loved ones, co-workers and society as a whole. The abuser’s preoccupation with the substance, plus its effects on mood and performance, can lead to problems in their marriage, work performance and other
relationships. The abuse can disrupt family life and create destructive patterns of codependency. This behavior often confuses and angers loved ones as they struggle to understand why the abuser has chosen the substance over them. While not a substitute for counseling, this workshop helps to normalize the
feelings and emotions people experience as we explore the impact of substance abuse on the family.

Workshop Objectives
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
Identify the extent of substance abuse in society
• Define substance abuse and related terms
• Describe the possible causes and risk factors for substance abuse
Identify the dynamics of the substance abuser and the family
• Describe how denial operates in the user and in family members
• Describe the process of enabling the user by the family
• Identify the effects of untreated substance abuse upon the family in current and future generations
Describe the change process
• Describe the role of emotional management in relating to the user
• Describe the course of illness and the extent to which consequences matter
• Identify resources and how to select a treatment program
