Trainings & Webinars

The Beaver County System of Care will provide training that educates stakeholders on evidence-based and best practice models that support the consumer-driven, recovery-oriented transformation process. Training will be open to all peers, family members, service providers, community agencies, and natural supports in Beaver County.



GOOD NEWS: 

Beaver County IS resuming in-person Mental Health First Aid & Youth Mental Health First Aid Trainings!

We will begin with smaller class sizes and CDC compliance due to COVID-19 safety concerns.

Co-Occurring Disorders Series



TRAININGS WILL BE FROM 9AM-12PM


We have taken into consideration that it can be REALLY hard to sit through LONG, virtual trainings, therefore the COD trainings have been separated and condensed into 3-hour trainings for this round. A certificate of attendance will be sent out for each training of the series.

Social work credits are being explored.   Please sign-up for credits if you would like them, and we will let you know if they are are not available for the series.

All of the trainings in this series will be virtual, on the Zoom platform. This Beaver County training series is free of charge, with priority given to Beaver County residents and providers. For questions or registration, email Jennifer@etc-pa.com




(6/1/2022) A LOOK AT SPECIAL POPULATIONS: HOMELESS, MILITARY & VETERANS, AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE
Understanding the generalities of co-occurring disorders is not enough. Community workers in various settings must also be aware of how sub-cultures are impacted in different ways. This advanced training will cover additional complications that those involved with homelessness, criminal justice, and the military may experience.

(6/15/2022) ONE MORE SPECIAL POPULATION: THE YOUNG BRAIN 
Childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood are times for significant growth—physically and emotionally. Because the young brain is not fully developed until around age 25, it responds differently than an adult brain. This training will focus on these developments and how the young brain is impacted by mental health and substance use issues.

(6/29/2022) ANOTHER LOOK AT SPECIAL POPULATIONS: WOMEN, OLDER ADULTS, AND LGBTQIA+ 
Understanding the generalities of co-occurring disorders is not enough. Community workers in various settings must also be aware of how sub-cultures are impacted in different ways. This advanced training will cover a review of special concerns regarding women, older adults, and the LGBTQIA+ community.
