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 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.

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 both sessions, 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.

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!
