yesterday was horrible. But the rioting all year has been horrible.
Joan Scanlon
25:27
yes it has been
Ava Ashley
25:35
In general resources should center around allowing youth to process verbally and acknowledging what feelings they have related to the events

How do we address all the rioting that has been going on not just what happened yesterday
Kelly Frizen, DDAP
27:04
I wonder what's out there on addressing vicarious trauma from current events
Beth Neveux
27:10
We may want to partner with school teachers and counselors to see what they may already be doing as well.
Tiffany Manners

Yes, Mary, well said

To go off of what Kelly said: trauma in general needs addressed. Trauma for what they see on TV happening in the world and around them and trauma of losing people to the virus, trauma of families losing jobs, becoming homeless, trauma from homeschooling and drastic changes.

Roxanne Green from CORA Services I havent vetted this website but it has resources for yesterday's "event. https://beyondthestoplight.com/2021/01/06/resources-for-teachers-on-the-days-after-the-attack-on-the-u-s-capitol/?fbclid=IwAR0EC7sWjR3haarhysbzjYJuflW59oqF-p2bv-OedCiHfbPjPSUfoUAZ24U

I think it is important to seek the truth and not trust without questioning what we see on the media. I was at the rally and it was a peaceful rally until 4:00 pm. People from all walks of life were there - people of faith wanting to protest which is within their constitutional rights. There were instigators wo stormed into the Capitol building fomenting mistrust and the media unfortunately largely is reporting only the rioting by a very few who wants to create chaos.
mail@goalproject.org
30:29
Our goal here should be addiction prevention and reaching out to folks who are struggling and not make this a political forum.
lyasenosky@fcdaa.org
33:30
I agree, addiction and not making anything a political forum. Or even a pandemic. I have never been asked about Covid but any teachers, administrators, etc. about mistrust. Doctors should be answering the questions. Not us. I know very little about the vaccine.
Katie Becker-- Prevention
34:08
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bob Willis
34:27
Well said, Ava,.
Javerta Sims
34:28
I think in addressing addition issues we need to be aware and have resource to handle everything that affect our children and community. The things that are risk factors are the Covid issues, the aweful things which happened in the media to people of color and what happened yesterday. This the perfect forum for this discussion and it should not be considered political.
Tiffany Manners
35:23
Thank you so much Ava
Mary K. Doherty
35:28
You are so correct, Javerta.

Strengthening Families 10-14 is happening in Fayette County as well. It is amazing and helpful. It helps create conversation between parents and youth and helps them connect. It is an amazing program. Karen, you have a lot of work ahead of you but it is well worth it!
Sarah Dunford
37:23
Strengthening Families 10-14 is a great resource for effective ways for talking to kids about tough issues and its evidence based if you have not been certified to facilitate
Sheri Larson
37:32
We do SFP 10-14 as well. It is an amazing program!!
Karen Johnston

On the topic of response to current events...Shared by Dr. Dana Milakovic, PsyD, NCSP of PDE, forwarded from Dr. Nikole Hollins-Sims, our equity consultant: Classroom dialogue (virtual, in-person, or hybrid) will be needed and as I like to say “creates a proble-tunity” [out of a problem, comes an opportunity] for significant teachable moments. These same recommendations apply to ourselves as colleagues and fellow educators. I am encouraging you to give space today for checking in with your colleagues and also checking in with yourself (see Self-Awareness PDE equity pillar of practice).• Responding to the Insurrection at the US Capitol | Facing History and Ourselveso Immediate recommendations based on January 6th, 2021.• When Bad Things Are Happening (Teaching Tolerance) When news breaks of disaster or violence, your students may want to discuss a crisis as it unfolds.

Does anyone know/have experience: Is TGFD formatted for use virtually--not pre-recorded lessons, but synchronous lessons?
Jackie Steed
42:24
Geneen Burris is our contact at EPISCenter for SFP 10-14

TGFD has the workbook in virtual form but only for the facilitator to share on their screen not to be shared with students.

What programs are best for youth and families living in the inner city? Not all programs fit all.
Sarah Messina

Geneen at EPIS: grs119@psu.edu
danielle
43:48
I would suggest Positive Action for after school
Sarah Lehman
43:53
With our role in providing behavioral education in so many programs such Too Good for Drugs I think it would be beneficial for DDAP to provide some parental behavior guidelines that are beneficial to children that can be applied at home and accessed on the DDAP website. The parental guidelines could outline specific healthy behaviors and language that can help children process and debrief at home from observing traumatic experiences on the news or in person. This idea could also serve as an overarching prevention effort as trauma is linked to increase substance use.

SFP 10-14 was also readapted to be able to be given in Spanish as well as another adaptation called Strong African American families 10-14 which was adapted to cater to the needs of families of color. so please look into that for your communities
Tiffany Manners
46:17
We have been able to provide TGFD lessons virtually, not ideal, as mentioned, but with the help of the teachers, can still be very interactive.
Lisa Miller
46:58
Thank you, all, for the TGFD info !
Megan Taylor
47:16
In a pinch, we've been able to record TGFD lessons with a live classroom and have been given permission to share this with other classes as appropriate. Having kids watch the recorded session with the feedback has helped keep the program interactive.
Mel Brownfield (she/her/her's)
47:58
Botvin LifeSkills Training (LST) is also happening in our county. It is a classroom based lifeskills class and has an e-LST option through the developers. It is for youth in middle school. It teaches a lot of skills like coping with anger, handling stress, as well as information on drugs and alcohol.
danielle
49:06
I researched this program a little bit but still need to revisit. Might be a resource for you Chantae. https://onecirclefoundation.org/material-gc.aspx
Katie Kucz
49:38
Montgomery County SCA has partnered with Devereux Center for Effective Schools to put all the TGFDs content into ppt presentations including modified versions of the games. They have also adapted the workbooks as a fillable pdfs. Our contracted prevention providers utilize the ppts and workbooks primarily synchronously with our school districts.
Jackie Steed
50:20
For those doing session based virtual live or recorded. Two questions. What tools are you using to collect data. Demographics and attendance. Also what evaluation tools are being used?
Deborah Sapin-Feldstein
50:51
yes - a school district email is best.
Laura Wiechecki (she/her)
50:56
We're using SurveyMonkey for pre- and post-surveys
Tiffany Manners
51:04
Thanks Katie, the modifications from Devereaux have been extremely helpful!
Mel Brownfield (she/her/her's)
51:14

https://bit.ly/EducatorCrisisResources. A resource for community education on recent violence/protests. Very varied responses so review carefully for use with your agencies and clients.
Nancy Ritchie
53:06
We get demographics from the school districts or principals for the students per class prior to the program. Then the teacher tells us who has not logged in for the virtual class.
Monica Morris
53:32
We're using Google Forms for the pre-post surveys.
Maria Markakis
53:47
Thanks for sharing Mary, great resource!
Megan Taylor
54:12
We have the kids use a blank sheet of paper for activities if they haven't been given the workbooks ahead of time. They can take a picture and submit it from there or turn it in when they are in person.
Jeff Thomas
56:13
Lackawanna and Keystone College are conducting virtual alternative activities. In addition, Lackawanna is connecting a social norms campaign along with it.
Erin Reese
57:11
Yes, our schools are struggling with SADD, as well. I believe that out of five districts in our county, only two or three are still holding meetings, etc
Lisa Schneller
57:48
We had a virtual 5K that went very well
Lisa Verbos
58:38
I know that some non-profits have moved to virtual 5Ks during the pandemic if this is something one would want to pursue as an alternative activity.
Katie Taylor
59:09
Lisa can you please email me more information? katietaylorprevention@gmail.com! Thank you!!
Megan Taylor
59:10
We have thrown around a virtual family game night...

Have seen some local, guided family events -- Scavenger / Historic Sites plotted on a map that is emailed to participants and goody/related box mailed to home address for the adventure.
Lisa Schneller
01:02:25
Sure, we delivered/sent boxes to participants that included capes, masks, prevention activities, prevention information/resources, ways to participate, information on how to interact with social media. We nominated heroes in the community and within our agency.
Lisa Schneller
