EVENING ACTIVITIES

   Tuesday, July 12
7:00 – 9:30 P.M., (Alumni Center): Hearts and Mind, with John Lenssen and Michael
Leeds. "Hearts and Minds" - an interactive dialogue on the role of heart (love, emotion,
commitment, compassion, relationships) in connection with minds and the res ultant
impact on the change process. This is a departure (perhaps a much needed balance)
from the emphasis on evidence-based programs, and yet research supports the
powerful role of heart and commitment in the realm of leadership and change.
Promoting peace requires changing hearts and minds.

The session will address: healthy hearts, supporting ourselves, strengthening
relationships, promoting healthy and respectful work environments, and developing
authentic connections with youth and their families.

   Wednesday, July 13
7:00-9:00 P.M., (Alumni Center): Let’s Play and Learn, with John Bergman. This
workshop will go over exercises to use in your most important work with KIDS. Come
see how drama therapy is used in working with youth. YOU’LL HAVE A GOOD TIME:
Guaranteed!

M-1 Methamphetamine- Eric Martin
This session will cover epidemiology, chemistry, child welfare, neuropharmacology, physical consequences of use,
aggression, and high risk behavior of methamphetamine.

M-2 Gang Awareness Training – John Sena
Gang Awareness Training is a comprehensive guide for law enforcement and criminal justice-related professionals,
mental health professionals, administrators, teachers and parents. It includes gang life style, sociology and
characteristics of: Latino, Asian, African-American, White Supremacists, Occult and Hybrid gangs. Prevention
programs often fall by the wayside in favor of increased incarceration. So what can we do to help?

M-3 Integrated Approaches to Preventing School Violence– Dr. Jeffrey Sprague, John Lenssen, Scott Perry
How can schools and their partners effectively plan and deliver the necessary components (including: school wide
discipline, individualized interventions, crisis management, social skills instruction, communication systems linking
with parents and community, meaningful and effective academics, data collection and screening, etc.) in the
promotion of safe schools conducive to learning? This workshop will present an integrated systems approach for the
prevention of school and youth violence. It will identify ways to link evidence-based violence prevention programs
and strategies with school/district goals and plans.

M-4 Empowering Students to Prevent Violence & Suicide – Pete Trepanier
This presentation will explain the rationale for the prevention efforts launched in all public middle and high schools in
the three counties making up central Oregon. The presenter will discuss the 5-year strategy to integrate ASIST and
Teen Screen into the youth suicide prevention efforts in this area. These effective strategies are currently being
evaluated to determine how they have worked in the system.

M-5 Cyber Bullying – Nancy Willard
Cyber Bullying will address the multi-faceted concerns of how the Internet and other mobile communication
technologies have raised the potential impact of social cruelty to a much higher level. Cyber Bullying can be 24/7
and can reach teens wherever and whenever they use such technology. Derogatory, demeaning images or text
about teens can be spread world wide in seconds. Cyber Bullying has been implicated in cases of youth suicide.
This session will provide an overview of cyber bullying activities, address how technologies can foster disinhibition,
discuss legal issues, and present a comprehensive, research-guided school/community-based approach to address
cyber bullying concerns. The presentation will also address threat assessment related to Internet communications.

M-6 Embracing the Shadow & Mending the Sacred Hoop: Healing Violence in Our Communities – Dr. Terry Tafoya
This workshop will elaborate on the theme of the traditional Native American concept of "The Sacred Hoop" or sense
of unity and connectedness that has been damaged in so many of our communities. The feelings of isolation and
loneliness, so pervasive in American society, and so much a part of addiction issues, violence, and gang formation
are some of the symptoms of this shattered Hoop.
The workshop will focus on the need to confront, acknowledge, and celebrate "The Shadow," or that which one fears
most about our selves and our communities (i.e., sexuality, alcoholism, family violence) through the use of
storytelling, humor, and cross-cultural elements of healing, as one of the first necessary steps for restoring the
Sacred Hoop to wholeness.

M-7 Family Conflict – Betsy Coddington and Resolutions Northwest
Does your teenager constantly come home late, not do assigned chores, and refuse to communicate with you
respectfully? Does your partner expect too much from you? Does your elderly parent still interfere with your child
rearing practices? This interactive workshop will focus on problem solving techniques for family conflict. Learn
about a successful teen/adult family mediation program and practice your problem solving skills through role play
and other participatory activities.

M-8 The Power of Groups – A Dynamic Tool for Parenting – Satya Maness
What are the essential elements of a successful group? Hands-on activities and the wisdom drawn from Birth to
Three’s 26-years of experience and evidence-based curricula for parents of children 0-8, help bring out the power of
parenting groups, whether in center-based or home-visiting programs.

                                                         - 10 -
M-9 Health Effects of War and the SMART Alternatives – Physician’s Social Responsibility
Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility has created an educational presentation that helps put the War on
Terrorism in perspective by examining whether war is an appropriate response to the attacks of 9-11. Will prolonged
global war reduce the threats against our country, or will it perpetuate the cycles of anger, hatred, and violence?
Health Effects of War and the SMART Alternatives looks beyond the death and destruction commonly associated
with war and explores its other short- and long term-effects, including civilian casualties, environmental and
economic breakdown, refugees, land mines, psychological devastation, and nuclear threats.

M-10 Racial Harassment – Winston Cornwall
Winston Cornwall is the Education Program Specialist for Civil Rights/Equal Educational Opportunity with the Oregon
Department of Education. This session will discuss the procedures school districts and other offices will need to
follow when faced with a racial harassment claim.
