I am happy to share this opportunity to publish your work in a Special Issue in the Prevention Science Journal. This great effort aims to document “International Responses to Prevention Intervention Research during Human Ecosystem Disruptions.”

Deadline: June 1, 2021.

Washington State University’s Prevention Science PhD Program is hosting an informational webinar on Wednesday, November 18th from 12-1pm PST for prospective applicants to describe the goals, structure, and various opportunities in the program. WSU Prevention Science faculty, students, and alumni will also answer questions about the program and the application process. Please share with anyone you think might be interested!
Hello, during these times it's my belief we must think of the most vulnerable in our society, my mind goes to those who are experiencing homelessness. Could local and state officials bring stakeholders from the hospitality industry and homeless advocates together so that all could benefit? Could funds for hotels about to shut down be provided to house homeless in social distance safe environment? Homeless shelter services staff could provide services, from a safe distance, to address hotel owners fears that their property will be ruined. A small number of health care personnel could monitor all hotel residents for symptoms of the virus and transfer as needed for health care. This will prevent contagion from and deaths among this vulnerable population. And could partnerships not be created with restaurants to deliver meals to these individuals? I am aware some cities here in the US and even in the EU are enacting such polices, why not on a national level here?
On May 30th from 10:15-11:45pm in Room Capitol A, the Leaders of three prominent National Foundations will speak in an Invited Symposium at the SPR meeting on their work to reduce inequalities and disparities in our most vulnerable children, youth and families. Presentations will be based on the growing recognition that the prevention scientific community has a responsibility to work with disadvantaged communities, bringing research methods and findings to bear in developing integrated systems of evidence-based practices to address educational and mental/behavioral health problems. Appropriate research-based solutions also need to actively address the impact of exposure to the chronic stress and trauma stemming from concentrated urban and rural poverty, child maltreatment, parental substance addiction, and many other interrelated influences. A systems change approach—marrying schools, community organizations, government agencies, researchers, and policy-makers—will increase the chances for success in vulnerable children and youth prior to entrenchment of problems. Improving intercollaborations among all child-serving systems, and empowering them with prevention research-infused methods, promises to enhance lifelong pathways and fundamentally reduce inequality on a population level. The panelists will present initiatives and particularly impactful funded projects of their foundations in the educational, civic, child welfare, mental health and juvenile justice domains.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS!

Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment (JSAT) Editorial Fellowship Program.

Applications are now being accepted for the JSAT Editorial Fellowship Program. Supported by Elsevier and JSAT, the Fellowship is a one-year experience to begin in January 2021. We seek two Fellows for 2021. The compensation for the Fellowship is $1,000 for each Fellow, and the experience accrued will support future involvement in the editorial side of scientific publishing. Previous Editors-In-Chief and a current Associate Editor of JSAT were Editorial Fellows. Furthermore, there are several models for the Fellowship leading to roles on the JSAT Editorial Board.

The Fellows will participate in bi-weekly phone calls with the Editor-In-Chief, and monthly phone calls with the Editor-In-Chief, Associate Editors, and Managing Editor. The former will focus on manuscript review, the ethics of authorship and review, and how to combine and synthesize conflicting reviews into a constructive decision. Each Fellow will be expected to advance twelve to fifteen papers over the year through the editorial process from submission to review to publication decision. The work should not be longer than 1 to 2 hours per week. The Fellowship should result in a superb knowledge of contemporary electronic scientific publication and also improve writing skills and manuscript preparation.

The ideal applicant would be a person in an early to mid-phase of her or his academic or research career, with a track record indicating a commitment to substance use treatment research. Those interested should email Dr. Peter Friedmann, Editor-In-Chief, directly with questions ([email protected]).

Applicants should send via email to Emily Babson: [email protected]: 1) a one-page letter to the Editor expressing interest in the Fellowship, describing any previous experience with JSAT as an author or reviewer, and indicating how the Fellowship will fit into career plans; and 2) a curriculum vitae. Applications are due by November 2, 2020. The editorial team will make final decisions, with a January 2021 start.

Society for Prevention Research » SPR and NPSC Statement Condemning Racism

The Society for Prevention Research (SPR) and the National Prevention Science Coalition to Improve Lives (NPSC) recognize institutional, systemic and individual racism as a fundamental cause of disparities across all of society, directly affecting health, housing, education, employment, and equitable treatment of Black Americans. Racism, coupled with our ongoing tolerance for it, undermines democratic values for all people in the U.S.

Great work on building culturally sensitive evidenced based interventions for opioid use disorders in native communities

Research funded by the #nihHEALinitiative explores how to integrate medication-based treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD) and the healing traditions of American Indian and Alaska Native communities. The study’s “two-eyed seeing” approach uses both Western and indigenous worldviews to create evidence-based, sustainable, and culturally-centered interventions that can be successfully adopted into primary care and addiction treatment clinics serving AI/AN. https://heal.nih.gov/news/stories/native-cultures @NIDANIH @universityofnewmexico @UofNorthDakota
