*THIS IS A 2 WEEK ONLINE COURSE*
This presentation will examine the link between food and its’ potential effects on children’s mood and behavior as well as the impact those behaviors have on the family system. The information provided is based on the first-hand experience of a mother who is a mental health professional and whose son has gluten-sensitivity and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. This presentation will show how children may be misdiagnosed or labeled before discovering the underlying medical conditions that cause or contribute to symptoms in children.

Program facilitators often hear their students say “this program is boring!” And the natural response is to find appropriate ways “spice up” your program. However, as an educator you must balance making an activity fun while at the same time ensuring it is effective and salient. One way of approaching this situation is to think like a child! This session invites participants to approach the delivery of prevention, cessation and intervention activities in ways that engage learners on multiple levels, enhances the durability of the learning, and increases the likelihood that what is experienced in the classroom will be transferred and applied to solve real world challenges. Participants will be able to use these fun and innovative techniques when delivering any type of prevention or cessation/intervention program
This workshop will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to effectively plan, implement and evaluate evidence-based tobacco use prevention interventions to reach youth and young adults.

The framework for Multicultural Competency for this workshop comes from Dr. Patricia Arredondo's model. Cultural competency is made up of 3 factors: 1) awareness, both of ourselves and others, 2) knowledge of self and others, and 3) skills, including how we think and feel as well as how we behave.
A brief review of assumptions, personal bias, and awareness of cultural diversity issues will be presented. Focus of the workshop will be on knowledge of self and others (appreciating diversity of many different aspects of culture) and on developing skills for working with people from diverse cultures. Specific skills will be presented and practiced. Organizational cultural competency will also be addressed.
