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

Event Date

Bangkok
Country
Thailand

The International Consortium of Universities for Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR) will be holding its annual conference at the Sukosol Hotel in Bangkok Thailand, July 13-15, 2020.

ICUDDR supports the rapid improvement in competencies and skills among current and future generations of addiction professionals, to meet the increasing demand for prevention, treatment and public health services. Toward this end, the ICUDDR facilitates networking among universities to promote high quality education and training in the field of addiction prevention, treatment and public health interventions. It also pursues related applied addictions research, outreach and advocacy.

Call for proposals

We are accepting abstracts for 1.5 hour panel presentations and 3 hour courses. There are two categories for which you can submit a proposal:

Panel proposals: three or four linked 15-20 minute plenary presentations on work force development; excellence in higher education; combining research, education and practice; university community engagement; or other topics related to the ICUDDR mission. You may submit a full panel with three or more presenters, or a single presentation 15 – 20 minutes in length, that if accepted, will be joined with presentations on a similar topic.

Master Class or Workshop proposals: 3 hour long break-out session. These sessions will have smaller groups (fewer than 50) and are designed to be interactive, fun and skill-based learning sessions for academics who conduct research and teach in the area of drug demand reduction.

Please keep in mind our mission and goals when submitting your proposal. Please send proposals clearly marked as plenary panel or master class/workshop and in the format of an outline and abstract no longer than a page each. Please attach CVs or resumes of all presenters and send your proposal to eylesc [at] icuddr [dot] org.

Some partial scholarships available for airfare and hotel are available on a limited basis.

** Please note: Like many of you, we are concerned about COVID-19 and are following its spread closely. The safety of all of our members and participants is incredibly important. We will be delaying online registration for our conference until April 15 as we watch what happens. We will also extend the time for submitting applications for presentations and travel support until April 1. Please continue to submit your presentation proposals, because if travel to Bangkok looks problematic for July, we will hold a virtual conference instead with all presentations held online and recorded so that people in all time zones can participate.

We appreciate your patience and will continue planning for our live conference in Bangkok with the expectation that the epidemic will have run its course by July. We will have more information in April and will make a decision at that point in time and open registration for either a live conference or a virtual conference.

If you have questions, please contact Cary Hopkins Eyles at eylesc [at] icuddr [dot] org.
