The digital culture is ever-changing, fast-paced, and difficult to stay on top of due to all the nuances. Learning how to educate children, parents and communities is the primary focus of this workshop. 

This workshop will discuss the evolution of social media and how digital platforms utilize our data and human psychology to formulate our next digital move. Attendees will see how emotional intelligence, sleep habits, digital addiction and self-worth is being shaped by technology. Digital influence on emotional and social contagion theory will also be covered material.

We will finish off emotional contagion theory as the discussion will transition to the current digital trends like cyberbullying, sexting, sextortion, and human trafficking. This session will conclude with best practices to teach law enforcement, victim advocates and others how to best educate on sensitive digital topics. By coming to this session, a person will develop the skill set to combat the rising digital issues like social change and digital subcultures (examples: cancel, challenge and predatory cultures). 

The non-profit Digital Futures Initiative (DFi) was created to deliver digital life skills to students and parents in an innovative, consistent way. Lessons are designed by curating the best, most current content available in the world then compiling the material into FREE curriculum for any school, county or group. The program includes all the self-paced online training, PowerPoints, videos, presenter notes and in-class activities needed to start teaching digital citizenship courses in any community.

In 2019 there were over 4.3 million individuals in the United States on community supervision. Of this population, approximately 400,000 men and women have been convicted multiple times for driving while intoxicated (DWI). Given high caseloads, competing interests and priorities in community corrections, it’s challenging to determine how to best supervise the DWI offender, capture their unique criminogenic risk factors, determine their likelihood to reoffend, and understand their treatment needs. This presentation will provide the latest information on national DWI research and statistics as well as validated DWI assessment tools including the Impaired Driver Assessment (IDA) and the Computerized Assessment Referral System (CARS).  Using research on characteristics of high risk impaired drivers as a backdrop, participants will understand the vital role these tools can play to both the Courts and Community Supervision in determining risk to recidivate while assisting criminal justice professionals in developing supervision plans that reflect criminogenic factors.

Objectives:

Participants will identify how DWI assessments impact sentencing and supervision strategies.
Participants will identify how to capture DWI assessment information at the pre and post- sentence level.
Participants will identify the characteristics and profiles of DWI offenders and the criminogenic risk factors that increase their likelihood of recidivating.   
Participants will also learn about some of the countermeasures and promising practices jurisdictions are employing to address recidivism.

Home delivery of alcohol is on the rise nationwide, posing regulatory and enforcement challenges. The alcohol marketplace is changing quickly, from direct shipment and third-party delivery services to curbside pickup and cocktails to-go, requiring enforcement, prevention and public health stakeholders to react with creative solutions and strategies to regulate and enforce this new alcohol marketplace.

In 2016, 43% of fatally injured drivers in impaired driving crashes with a known test result, tested positive for drugs, more frequently than alcohol was present. The growing number of states that have legalized recreational marijuana and the increased abuse of prescription drugs have created an increased threat to our roadways.   Given that over two thirds of our criminal justice population is drug and/or alcohol involved, probation officers and treatment providers need to understand the challenge we face with drug impaired drivers.  This interactive presentation will provide the audience up to date information on the scope of our drug impaired driving problem, the use of assessment tools to determine risk and practical evidence based sentencing, supervision and monitoring strategies to address these behaviors.

 

Learning Objectives

Participants will identify drug impaired driving trends and their challenges
Participants will identify how  assessment tools can help determine risk for drug impaired drivers
Participants will identify three supervision countermeasures and research based practices that jurisdictions should be using to reduce the possibility of re-offense by drug impaired drivers

It feels like any time we go to a conference saying it recognizes "Rural Idaho" that they never quite understand what "rural" means.  For Law Enforcement, they still have 5+ officers available at any time, and for EMS they still run paramedic units WITH an engine.  We want to talk with you about being truly rural, so rural we are actually "frontier" by definition.  Less that 5,000 in our "big towns"
This session will cover how our small town law enforcement deals with enforcement and prevention by utilizing community policing and prevention education.  Smaller areas often have access to less resources which often times means you have to get creative with what you do have access to.  We will also show you how we built and utilize our 20'x8' Mobile Mock Bedroom trailer through our Drug & Alcohol Trends Education (DATE) program.

One challenging aspect of coalition building and connecting with teammates is the increasing blending of multiple age groups in this arena. Rarely have we seen such a myriad of generations side by side in the field, at the office, teaching in school, or working with youth. To help law enforcement, providers, instructors, and others meet this challenge and succeed, “Why Don’t You Act My Age? Generational Team Building” was prepared for this conference. Updated to reflect the challenges of 2018, this interactive session is focused on providing attendees with both communication and generational team building skills. “Why Don’t You Act My Age?” is designed to identify the key traits of each generation in our society, including their communication and collaboration preferences. It addresses areas such as technology, perceptions of other generations, and cross-generational commonalities. Most importantly, it incorporates the unique challenges we face regarding inter-generational teamwork in alcohol and substance abuse education.

Primary course delivery methods include facilitative lecture, small and large group discussion, and group activities.  In addition, the class incorporates a cross-generational small group exercise to reinforce new skills. Built from over 20 years of experience in generational team building, "Why Don't You Act My Age?" gives students hands-on practical skill sets for cross-generational collaboration. Regardless of your own generation, this class provides skills that YOU can use!
