During the pandemic confinement, those working in substance use have had to look for the best way to deal with this period of uncertainty, rethinking, in many cases, new ways of continuing to support the people they work with.

In this context, the Chilean Chapter of ISSUP has set itself the challenge of collecting the work experiences of its members, through the methodology of conversations,whose final purpose is to generate content relevant to the experience of work and intervention in the context of the COVID 19 phenomenon.

This is an exclusive partner activity and we look forward to meeting to reflect on the challenges of this stage and the new responses generated. We have organized thematic conversations that will be held through the ZOOM platform between July 6 and 14.

During the pandemic's confinement, each person has had to look for the best way to deal with this period of uncertainty. In relation to substance use, for some this stage of social isolation has become a protective factor of consumption, while for others it has been a source of stressors that affect mental health and increase the risk of substance use. In this context, prevention becomes urgently needed.

This seminar, aimed at technicians and professionals working in the field of substance use prevention, seeks to strengthen work with a view of the context and challenges of the current pandemic.

This activity has been organized by the prevention team of the Addiction Unit of the University Psychiatric Clinic, belonging to the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Chile and the Clinical Hospital of the University of Chile.

It is part of the FONIS Project No. SA19I0152 of ANID (Chilean National Research and Development Agency) and is sponsored by the Chilean Chapter of ISSUP (International Society of Professionals for the Prevention and Treatment of Drug Addiction

Durante el confinamiento que genera la pandemia, cada persona ha debido buscar la mejor manera de enfrentar este período de incertidumbre. En relación al uso de sustancias, para algunos esta etapa de aislamiento social se ha transformado en un factor protector del consumo, mientras que para otros ha sido fuente de estresores que afectan la salud mental y aumentan el riesgo de consumir sustancias. En este contexto, la prevención se vuelve necesaria de manera urgente.

Este seminario, dirigido a técnicos y profesionales que se desempeñan en el ámbito de la prevención del uso de sustancias, busca fortalecer el trabajo con una mirada del contexto y de los desafíos que conlleva la pandemia actual.

Esta actividad ha sido organizada por el equipo de prevención de la Unidad de Adicciones de la Clínica Psiquiátrica Universitaria, perteneciente a la Facultad de Medicina de la Universidad de Chile y al Hospital Clínico de la Universidad de Chile.

WEBINAR: Cary Hopkins Eyles on Authentic Self-Care for Addiction Professionals

This webinar focuses on the issue of self-care for addiction professionals and was delivered by ICUDDR Deputy Director Cary Hopkins Eyles.

Many of us are drawn to work in the field of substance use disorders due to our history, family, and personal traits, such as compassion and empathy. While these can be great assets, they can also be detrimental to us personally.

In this webinar, Cary explains how to identify healthy and unhealthy traits, how we can care for ourselves, and what authentic self-care looks like.

Cary has worked in the field of substance use disorders for 18 years. She is passionate about helping professionals in this field to take care of themselves so they can thrive and help those in need. Cary has worked in direct care in non-profit in the U.S., has run Residential, Outpatient, and Criminal Justice treatment programs, and has trained and mentored other substance use professionals. She is now the Deputy Director for the International Consortium of Universities for Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR) and supports the development of addiction studies programs around the world. She is a global trainer in the Universal Treatment Curriculum (UTC).

Recorded on 13 March 2020
