Description: One ever-present question for addiction professionals is, “How do you foster behavior change and make it stick, whether on an individual or systems level?” Change is hard for our clients, our organizations, and even ourselves, but it doesn’t have to be. This webinar takes you on a deep dive into Tiny Habits®, a revolutionary method to promote lasting change in any setting. The method is based on Stanford Professor BJ Fogg’s breakthrough behavior model that addresses the 10 most common mistakes people make when trying to change behavior. This webinar will revolutionize how you think about behavior change and what you do about it for your clients, organization, and even for yourself in your own life!

Description: The victimization of African American women dates back to slavery. African American women have often been viewed as hypersexual and promiscuous, thus leading to less than “attractive” conversations about sex and sexuality. African American women have been portrayed as sexual objects in music videos, advertisements, and social media. This webinar will encourage dialogue that looks at the intersection of slavery, racism, sex, and HIV among African American women. It will address myths, stereotypes, generalizations, and micro-aggressions made by society that continue to stigmatize, oppress, and marginalize this population. Having these conversations will potentially ensure that African American women are treaty fairly and justly, especially in a society where racism is rampant.
